Do You Know What Kind Of Job Opportunity You’re Looking For?
Just after leaving school or college with or without a degree pinned to our well tailored blazer, we immediately dream of filling the chairman’s chair in a multinational company, eager to preside over the board meeting and take part in the all too pleasant tea party. No, there is nothing wrong with it. We greenhorns, all do that during some part of our early youth. Save and except, that it does not happen that way, however we may blame the dream machine. We need a job opportunity to start our careers off.
Well then, what next? Desperate search for a job opportunity do not yield a promising job overnight nor are employers looking eagerly to take us on employment as soon as the resume reaches their table. However, like dark ominous clouds having brilliant silver linings, a job opportunity is certainly there only if we seek for it. If you go on researching jobs online, you may be amazed at the number of job opportunity behind seemingly hopeless situations. A modestly satisfying job may be only a mouse away if you try hard. But don’t try to jump the steps all at once because you may slip and fall down, causing more injury to your career than you could think of.
Only the other day I asked my 17 year old daughter who was on the point of graduating the kind of job opportunity she was looking for. You know how she responded – her immediate aim was to head a large million dollar corporation like the IBM or General Motors, directing them for better operations. I was dumbstruck. Looking squarely in the eyes, I muttered that she was crazy. And that first of all she needed a master’s degree to merely get an entry into such global outfits and then gradually work her way up. She changed the topic. Are all teens like this? I do not think so. We have a special one here.
One way of finding a job opportunity is to go online and pop up Monster.com or Careerbuilder.com. These are easy to navigate websites with nation wide associates and world-wide connections. But simply opening the sites would not help. To aspire for the right job one has to punch all the relevant data in the format specially designed for the purpose and then await results. There are other avenues as well. Such as using the reach of the world-wide-web to send your resume to many potential employers.
