If you have started the New Year back at the same desk with the same people doing the same job that bores you to tears, you have probably hit your work wall.
There is only one thing to do now and only one person who can change that. You need to dust down that C.V. and get the job you really want.
We would all love to have a job, next to the beach in a warm climate or be able to work from home in our pyjamas but this dreaming could become a reality. Think about where your talents really lie. If you think you would be better suited to working with young people or old? Would you be prepared to drop your hours and take on a voluntary position with a view to making it a fully paid role in the future? Could you see yourself setting up your own business or taking on a franchise?
Don’t Be Scared To Ask For Help
Seek professional advice, talk to a recruiter and see if they can offer advice or if you are lucky a job that suits your requirements. The first thing you need to do is discover what you would like to do for the rest of your life. Be clear about what you want and why, have a fresh C.V. that is up to date and outlines your skills.
Citizens Advice Bureau can give you helpful tips and leads to finding the career you want. If you are thinking about starting your own business but are a bit unsure about tax and other important administerial issues you need to look at then take a look at the gov.uk who can take you through it step by step.
New Job, New You
To find the real you again will be a massive step in the right direction to getting the job you want. Go shopping for some new work clothing that will fit perfectly into the job you want to do. If you are on a tight budget, a new haircut or restyle is something that can work massively well in your favour, not only helping you be the person you are but feel more confident too.
Simple little things can make the larger more important decisions easier to make.
