Career coaching helps people start the job search by looking at their wants and needs. These insights help people identify a job skill set where they possess natural talent. |
1. What salary do you want?
There is more to answering this question than just writing down a figure on paper. What are you willing to sacrifice to reach that income level? Are you willing to work long hours? Are you willing to take courses in management, marketing, analysis and other topics that may be needed in the day to day care of a busy establishment? Are you willing to become your own Public Relations director? Are you willing to invest in your education, learning how to negotiate, manage people, and team building?
The higher the income, the more must be sacrificed to reach that pentacle. The higher a professional wants to climb the more they must invest. For example, few employers will hire a professional who has not spent a minimum of one to two years at each job. That means that job seekers need to consider each job placement carefully.
2. What Does Success Look Like?
We all have a 'media induced' image of what success should look like. This usually includes fast cars, condos, vacations, expensive clothing. We are predisposition through school, peers, to follow specific career paths.
A day comes when we need to take a moment to reflect on what makes us happy. What do we want to do? The restaurant industry offers a wide range of opportunities without needing to change career paths. It is possible to watch people who are successful at all levels of restaurant management, general managers, marketing, the list is almost endless.
Once you shake off others interpretation of success and identify what success looks like to you. What makes you happy? Imagine that you had a job that you were eager to leave for work and enjoyed your day. What would that job look like?
3. What Makes You Happy?
Are you artistic, social, competitive? What are your passions? Remember, that a passion isn't something you feel strongly about. It is something that motivates you to take action. There are many restaurant manager jobs in the online job banks. Some job seekers have an attitude that they are lucky to be accepted for a position. But what if you could use your passions to narrow down the jobs you apply for. Only apply for the jobs that promise to meet your needs?
4. What Can You Bring to the Job?
We all have strengths and weakness. We need to improve our skill set to overcome the weaknesses and take advantage of the strengths. These strengths can help job candidates determine what jobs to apply for. Instead of looking at a job bank, change your focus and look inside yourself.
