Finding your dream job: Secret 1 "Write It Down"

At one of these job networks, a class called Focus was held to teach job seekers the skills to focus on what they wanted in their next dream job. The class instructor Cindy said it was her last day teaching this class because she had found exactly the job she was looking for with this technique and she said it was uncanny because the previous instructor had found a job that was a close match that way too. The lesson in finding the most perfect job went like this.

Take a sheet of paper, a notebook or personal journal and write down everything you would like in your next job. Everything! including the income you want to make, your job duties, the tools you want to work with, the attire you want to work in, the type of people you want to work with, the person you'll work for, the industry you want, the hours and days you want to work and any other detail you can think of. After this lesson Cindy said she got all but one of the things on her list, and she said that was for a reason she had not considered. She said it was uncanny because the previous instructor got exactly what he asked for too after this lesson. The church job network had difficulty keeping instructors for this class because this lesson resulted in the instructors finding their perfect job.

One cannot over-analyze why this technique works so well. Maybe it works because writing it down creates the reality for the future, or maybe because these instructors were helping others they were depositing some kind of goodwill into some cosmic account which would return even more goodwill to them. Ancient wisdom from many religious schools of thought teach golden rules that we can apply to our daily lives; like "what goes around comes around", "give and it shall be given unto you" and even "thoughts become things."

But give it a try and leave your comments here.

Back in 1992, during the last economic downsizing, this author discovered many valuable career hunting secrets by volunteering at several faith based initiative job networks in Atlanta, Georgia. It was an synergistic setting, for the community had several major churches where programs were set up to assist people with their career search. Public meetings were held several times a week to help the job seeker by teaching them good job hunting skills. On Monday job search meetings were held in a Catholic church, on Tuesday a Presbyterian church and on Wednesday a Methodist Church. By volunteering, this author learned some very effective job search techniques that have worked well for others and can work well for you too.
