Do What You Love
By Erika Addington
At the end of high school, we make a decision on the best college. While in college you have to decide what career path to take for the rest of your life. How many of us knew what we wanted to do at 18 years old when we started college? Usually, you spend the first two years taking undergrad courses in the basics, then by your third year your parents hope that you are on a definite career path. You graduate and get a job most likely not in your field of education, maybe due to the economy, or because you hated your field when you actually tried to work in it.
Consequently, as adults we must find our passion through the many job opportunities we are given. Eight years ago, I actually took a recruiter position because of my human resources background and it turns out I loved it. I love helping people navigate the job search world and then finding a great position that suits both the candidate and the employer.
I accidentally found my passion. For others, like my son, he has always known since 2nd grade that he wanted to work on cars. Now he’s a Porsche technician with a reputable dealership. He is doing what he loves, which is to work with his passion…Porsches.
Some of us may have to do some heart-felt self-examination to figure out what our passion may be. When you find out what your passion is, then you can make every effort to find a job in or around that field. When you work a job because it’s your passion, then you will be fulfilled and happy to go to work. When you dread going to work every day, that’s when you need to re-evaluate your field and find a field that you love. I feel blessed to be working with such a great team here at M Force Staffing in a field that I love! Life is too short to be miserable at a job every day, so go out there today and do what you love!
