Are you setting yourself up for unhappiness? Many candidates today apply for jobs they are not well suited for, fulfill the basic criteria or even apply for a part-time job when they really wanted a full time one. Some really don’t want to work full time hours but want the pay of a full time job. While others even apply for a job not realizing the financial implications on their family, budget to live, day care etc. If you settle for these types of jobs you really won’t ever be happy in this job regardless of the pay. You will always think you have settled or end up in a job you never expected. Like for example you go to school to be a psychologist and end up selling cell phones. How was all of the money and hard work going to get you to your original end goals? Many get disgruntled at the pay or at the company after they made such a huge investment in their education only to make a little income. Maybe they need to ask themselves what do I really want? To be honest with themselves where do I really want to be and be committed to it for themselves and others that are impacted by their decisions. Life is full of detours and distractions. That’s what it takes to be committed to personal branding to keep your life on track.
