How to Alter your Interest into a Dream Career

By Stride Ahead

Understanding what is an interest :-

Anything that excites your curiosity or makes you want to know or learn more about something can be broadly called an “interest”. Interests are personal desires to learn about something and are varied in nature. Few interests are short term, while many are long term and are consistent across lifespan. Further, interests can lead to developing a hobby or making a career

So, what are career interests?

Career interests are your personal preferences related to work activities and environment. High paying jobs are not pre-requisite for job satisfaction but knowing your career interests and making a career out of the same is essential for happiness and satisfaction at work. Knowing your career interests will help you to make informed and strategic decisions about career choices. Following your career interests means making a career in an area that will make optimum use of your talent and align it with your preferences and values. 

“However, to make a career decision based on your interests, you need to discover and realise your career interests to explore it further to find out what you will enjoy doing each day.” 

Why is knowing your career interests important ?

Career interests reflect your preferences in the work environment. This makes it very essential to know and understand the importance of career interests. 

“Aligning your career with your interests which will not only fetch you income but has several benefits.” 

Some of them are a follows –

Job satisfaction – 

Job satisfaction is an important aspect which affects the overall wellbeing of an individual. It is a main criterion for happiness in life. It is also related to your sense of identity and achievement. Career satisfaction is found amongst individuals who have found their career interests and turned it into their dream career. Hence, knowing your career interest is necessary. 

Informed and strategic career decisions

 You should always make informed and strategic career decisions. Making a career decision in haste or uninformed will not only lead to boredom at work but also affect your productivity. Make decisions which are well thought of and scientifically based. 

Success at work

 Success depends on the amount of hard work you put into any task. And the key to success is doing the right work with full heart. You will be able to do that only if you like the work that you are doing and for that it is indispensable to know your career interest.
