Finding a job is one of the most frustrating parts of adult life — especially when you’re unemployed and need one, or you’re trying to get out of a current very-shitty job situation. But finding a job in the first place is difficult enough. What about finding a “good” job, meaning one that you really care about in some way? (Perhaps it’s in a field you really love, offers lots of creative responsibility, or offers great work/life balance.) There are so many aspects of landing the right job for you that no one really talks about. There’s no college class to tell you exactly how to land that elusive, fulfilling job of your dreams, because there’s no actual rulebook. All jobs and companies are different — even within the same field or industry.
In our most recent episode of The Financial Diet, Chelsea dives into everything you need to hear about getting a “good” job, from hiring process secrets to learning on the job during your first year. One thing to be certain of: never underestimate the importance of being good at communicating and administrative tasks, no matter whether or not it falls under your “job description.” This is true both during the hiring process and after you’ve actually been onboarded. The better you are at staying organized and regularly communicating issues to team members, the easier things will be for everyone around you — and yourself.
