Consider What You Do Best in Choosing a Job or Job Path
« on: December 15, 2015, 02:01:38 PM »
 A panel of people with disabilities spoke about their experiences while looking for work and after obtaining work. The advice given by them is valuable because this panel of people with disabilities knows firsthand what to do and not to do to obtain a job and keep it. They also know what obstacles will come up in looking for and keeping a job.
We would like to share some of their advice:
 
  • When looking for a job, be honest with yourself about what you are good at doing. Everyone has things they are not good at, and things they are great at in life.
  • No one should consider their disability a barrier or obstacle to employment. Be honest with yourself as to what your strengths are, and what you can and cannot do. 
  • Know what you are good at and what jobs you are looking to obtain. It will allow you to find the correct job fit. Most people do not get to work at their dream jobs, but a job that encompasses some of the things you love will make the job more enjoyable.
  • Let other people give advice, but make your own decisions, and remember to be honest and realistic with yourself, you will be happier in the long run.  Just remember, you are the one who knows yourself the best, and you are the one who should make the decisions as to what is best for you in life and on the job.
  • Work hard to obtain your goals.
Having a purpose in your work life or job will help keep things at work from getting old and keep you from experiencing burnout.   Visit our NHU Guide on Preparing for Employment
