Obtaining employment these days can be rather difficult, and it can be even more difficult to break into a career. Even if you have the right degree and all the right training, you’ll find that jobs are still just as elusive. The reason for this is pretty simple; there are a few thousand other people out there with the same credentials as you are looking to be hired for the same thing.

Employers are not hard pressed for potential employees these days, and jobs

are in short supply. Therefore, the best way to go about getting employment is to figure out what sets you above the competition. The question you need to ask, is who are you, and what defines you. The following are a few of the questions that you need to ask yourself:

What are your likes and Dislikes?

Your hobbies are very important; some would say that they are what, defines you. What do you like to do? What do you not like to do? It might not seem important in a job setting, but what do you do if an employer asks you this? How are you going to answer? The last thing you want to do is realize that you weren’t prepared and begin stumbling over your words; that is pretty obvious. Any time you are asked a question, you want to be able to answer it quickly and confidently.

What Type of Work Would You Like to Do?

Though you’ve probably gotten into the habit of randomly filling out employment applications trying to stumble into a career, you need to determine what sort of work you actually want to do. There will come a point when a job does need to become a career, so when applying for work you need to ask yourself if it’s really something you want to be doing for the rest of your life. If not then it’s time to find another career.

Who Are You?

It seems like a rather obvious question, but it’s one that many people tend to stumble on. Something you need to remember is that there is only one of you, and there will only be one of you. This makes you more valuable than you could ever know. Because there is only one of you, you need to build yourself up so that employers will know that you are something special. Even if you do not want to be the center of attention, you need to remember that you are competing for a job that dozens of other people want. Being the center of attention is really the best thing that you can do in this situation.

Those are a few of the questions that you need to ask yourself when looking for jobs and trying to seek out careers. There is no doubt that the job search process can be extremely complicated and you will have many things to sift through before you finally find your place in the work force

The important thing is to never give up. You need to market yourself and let potential employers know that you are out there, and that you are not only waiting, but also actively trying to get in touch with them. Good luck on your job search, and remember who you are!
