Okay, so you are really looking forward to having a few days off from work to celebrate the holidays. I’m with you all the way. It’s a good time to kick back and enjoy, even cheat on your diet before making a New Year’s resolution to lose 10 pounds. But, and I am only asking you this because I care, should you be thinking about your career – just a little?

The reason I’m writing this today is not to be a buzz kill. Instead, I’m hoping that after reading this you will think about pursuing a career that you will find rewarding, that actually makes you happy. If you are forever feeling under-appreciated, under-utilized, over-worked, and / or under-paid, I am here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. In short, I’m here to help you get over the “unders” and “overs.”

First and most importantly, you need to know yourself. I know this sounds cliché. Nonetheless, it is important to know what makes you happy so you can find and ascertain fulfilling work. To do this, you need to ask yourself important questions about what’s important to you. I offer the following questions as a means to get you thinking:

  1. Do you want to telecommute, see clients occasionally, use your relationship building skills, work on diverse projects, have some level of creativity, and write interesting content?
  2. Does the thought of sitting in an office all day or doing the same thing every day seem maddening to you?
  3. Do you find it nearly impossible to sit within four white walls all day with nothing at your disposal but a phone and a computer?
  4. Do you want to be on the move, talking to people, influencing people, persuading people, negotiating with people, or gaining consensus from people?

I wish I could tell you that if you answered “yes” or “no” to any of the abovementioned questions that I know the perfect career for you. I’m afraid it isn’t that easy. What is easy, however, is picking up the phone and calling A Word’s Worth Resume Writing and Career Coaching Service. With more than 25 years of experience in helping people win job interviews and gain positions that actually make them happy, I am confident that I can help you land the job of your dreams. By meeting with me you will actually (and I promise) get to know yourself better than you did before meeting with me. And I get the real treat. By helping you get to know you, I get to know you too! That’s what I call a win-win situation.

Happy holidays! Be safe! “See” you in 2015.
