5_Questions_to_Ask_Yourself_to_Discover_the_Job_of_Your_DreamsWhether you're a recent graduate, returning to the workforce after a period away, or contemplating making a career change, you've probably thought about what your dream job would be.

Here are a couple of questions that you should ask yourself, to help you discover the job of your dreams. 

1. What's Your Passion?

Ask yourself this: what is your passion? Do you have any hobbies? What do you like to do in your spare time? Your hobbies, likes, and interests are good indicators to what your dream job may be. 

For example, if you like math, working with numbers, and solving mathematical problems, an accounting role may be the right fit for you. If you are creative, and like to write, then a marketing role would probably suit you. Perhaps you enjoy creating things by hand. If so, a woodworking, or assembly job might be best for you. 

2. Did You Enjoy a Specific Subject in School?

Think about what subjects you enjoyed most while in highschool, or college/university. This there a subject that immediately comes to mind? 

Try not to base your decision solely on if you received a good grade. Base your decision on what subject you enjoyed the most, and what subject made you feel the most excited and fulfilled. 

This will lead you closer to figuring out your dream job. 

3. Working Individually or Within a Team?

The next question to ask yourself is this: do you work best individually, or within a team setting? Most positions require that you work well in both individual and group settings. 

If you consider yourself to be social, and you love interacting with people, then you would probably excel as a customer service representative, or a sales representative. 

4. What Does Your Gut Tell You?

Sit down, relax, and think it through. What is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about your ideal job? Go with your gut. If you're really not sure that the profession you're thinking of is right for you, perhaps it's not. It might be time to go back to the drawing board. 

5. Have You Previously Worked in This Field?

Once you have an idea of what you'd like to do career-wise, it's time to start a plan of action. Your next step would be to try and find a position in your desired field. This doesn't necessarily mean finding a job. Volunteering can help you figure out what you'd like to do, and looks great on a resume
