6 Questions to Ask When Looking For a Career

You’re ready for a new career, but it’s important to prepare yourself for success. Answer these questions in order to build a strong future.

  1. What Kind of Person are you (and What Kind do you want to be)?

Understanding your own values, weaknesses, and goals is vital to creating a life that you love. Focus on becoming hard-working and committed.

Now that you know who you are and what you love, where will those values shine? For instance, if you are compassionate, a career in the medical field may suit you.

The best way to overcome obstacles is to prepare for them. Take a moment and write down everything that could possibly get in your way and 2-3 ways to get around each one.

  1. Why do you want this?

Have a clear reason as to why you want to leave your old career, so that you have specific parameters to look for when choosing a new one.

  1. What is Available?

If you have time constraints on finding a new career, then you should focus on what industries have opportunities available now.

  1. How can you get there?
