Competence is great
Skill is fantastic
Being Proactive and results-driven counts for alot
Having experience and the right qualifications always helps
Knowing the right people is a 'feather in your cap'
But the work doesn't stop being a job unless it is your passion.
I want to thank everyone who has read and commented so far. In particular, for this short series on how we deal with work and our jobs, got to say thanks to +Andrea Sealy for her Straighttalk comment on the last post. She says:
"I enjoy certain aspects of my job, but not everything...and this is my "dream" job (for want of a better word). I studied with the intention of going into academia and research, which I am doing at present. But this is to say...even when you get into what you want to do...there are days/weeks where ya gotta grin and bear it. I look for new challenges, and various aspects to channel my energies into, which thank God, I have some flexibility to do. Thanks for posting this and other very pertinent topics on the blog!!!"
Is there such a thing as a 'dream job'? Let me know if you have a clue.
