What is a Dream Job?

You might think that finding a dream job is pie in the sky, especially in the current economy…. But let me ask you this,

* Do you know what a dream job is?

Does the term Dream Job translate to something out of reach and unattainable to you? Why? Have you ever sat down and really defined Dream Job in your own terms?

In my book, “How to Find Your Dream Job, Even in a Recession”, I outline a formula which I call the Euclidean Career Square. This career square is a practical outline that is designed to take the mystery out of The Dream Job. Using the analogy of a square here is my formula:

Euclidean Career Square – Dream Job Formula

1. At the top of the square is the People side. Often, you spend more time working then you spend with family. Consequently, it is important that you not only like but love the people with whom you work.
2. The bottom side represents Money; You MUST make enough money to sustain yourself, or you will eventually leave, even if you love the people.
3. The right side represents Growth; one of the six basic human needs. If there is no opportunity for healthy growth, the roots of a plant will become tangled and kill the plant.
4. The left side represents Work/Life Balance; If you love the people, money and have growth but no balance, you WILL experience discomfort in some part of your life, i.e. health, relationship, happiness, etc.

Dream jobs are achievable. The problem is most people spend more time thinking about what they hate about their jobs, versus, what they love. If you use the Dream Job Formula as a basis for establishing what you want, you’ll not only know what your Dream Job is, you will find it!

    Even in this tough economy job seekers can still get their dream job. A resume writing service can help the job seekers get a better job. There is no doubt that professional resume writers improve the chances of landing an interview.

    • Morie, you are absolutely correct! A resume can be the first barrier to entry into a potential job opportunity. Many individuals take it upon themselves to create a resume without any idea as to what they are doing. I saw a recent post on Linkedin with a guy who had applied to over 1000 companies without a single interview….I would start with the resume.
