If you don’t know what your dream job is— start with self-assessment. Two important questions:
1) what are you interested in?
2) What are you good at?
What do you do for fun? What makes you lose track of time? What do you like to read about? Which newspaper sections do you devour, and which do you toss? Look at the jobs you’ve had in the past, what did you like doing the most, and why?
Make a list of the things that fascinate you, even if they seem unlikely to have a career connection. If you love horse racing or jazz music or fashion or black and white photography, write it down. That doesn’t mean you necessarily want to become a jockey or a musician or a fashion designer or a photographer. But those are fields you find interesting.
Maybe you’ll decide you want to become an accountant who works for a music company. Maybe you want to be a DJ. Maybe you love music in your personal life, but don’t want it connected to your work
Sometimes a hobby loses its charm when you live with it eight hours a day. Keep the list handy.
