Since taking part in Blogtober and coming to the conclusion that I need to find ways to bring more elements of things that make me feel enthusiastic into my life I have been thinking about work and my job. I spend a great deal of my day in a job that I have come to realise drains me of energy and feel that a change of job could be one way to inject some much-needed enthusiasm into my life.
I am in a really lucky position, where I am already employed and can take time to really explore this idea before I even start to actively look and apply for anything. Today I thought I would take some time to think about what my perfect job would be.
I would really like a job that would allow me to do some of the things I really enjoy like art or photography or painting and decorating. I think I need something that can tap into my creative side and encourage and connect with those skills.
I’d love some kind of job that would make use of my writing skills, maybe something that involved researching and writing articles. Blogging would be a brilliant job as I could utilise skills that I have learned while letting me learn even more along the way.
I have so many qualifications in art-based subjects and would really like to be able to put those skills to work in a job and not just at home as part of my hobbies. I’d love to be able to use all of the things I learned in my Degree and Foundation Degree, as well as the self-taught skills that I have mastered.
I would love to be able to create and keep an eye on statistics and be able to report on where things are headed and what I can do to improve on them.
I’d like to have a job where I am appreciated, feel like part of a team and to be included in team chats and outings.
I’d like to work in an office that understands and has respect for each member of the team, where the individual matters as much as the rest of the team.
I’d like to be heard and have my concerns listened to and to be taken seriously.
I don’t have a job role that I am aiming for anymore, most of the “job roles” I have searched for in the past, even working as a member of bar staff, all have so many different requirements, that, now, I am looking at job requirements first rather than job title.
What would your perfect job be? What would you look for in the perfect job? I’d love to know your answers so let me know in the comments!
