This weekend I made a significant decision about the direction my life is heading in. I’ve decided that if I want to get back to where I was in my writing career, I have to start looking at writing jobs now and to concentrate on getting where I want to be.
I’ve read a lot of articles about people who have decided that the job they are doing and the career path they are on are not making them happy, but it’s a little different when you’re that person. It might seem as easy as updating your CV and looking for jobs you want to do, but it really isn’t. It’s a lot more complicated than that, especially if you are looking for a job in a completely different field.
I had a recruiter contact me yesterday about my updated CV, and they were trying to recruit me for a job that is in the same field I am already in which is not what I want to be doing, not any more. I had to reply to their email advising that I won’t be continuing with the process. I know exactly what I want to be doing and I’m going to strive for that.
While it’s nice to have recruiters calling you about job openings, it will be nicer still to have one contact me about the job I actually want.
Onward and upward friends, onward and upward!
