We want “job”.
We search “job”.
Fixerline is flooded with queries for a job. Some say “I want job” while other plead “I need job”. Sometimes I am actually stumped by the sheer desperation in tone and intensity of the job seeker. The end actually defines the search. If you are merely looking for a job then the entire universe opens up and you end up searching for a needle in a haystack.
Let’s look at Fixerline. Professionals who have career/work related problems consult us for advice. We can either respond to those queries as merely “queries” OR we can empathise and really work with them down the career path. This can be observed in magnified form when doctors treat you for an ailment. Doctor A can take an approach: I will do everything I can to save this patient. Doctor B gives you medication to help you feel better. The key differentiators are compassion and commitment.
If you want a job, you will get a job. If you want to have fun@work, then choose a career.
