Since I graduated, I’ve struggled to pin down what I want from a career, probably because I was always thinking about having a conventional 9-5 career.
I’d only allowed myself to think of jobs in an office and didn’t let myself believe that creative jobs could pay the bills, or that they were accepted.
When I finally wrote down everything that I wanted from a career, it felt like I’d given myself permission to dream about a creative job; one where I can use my brain every day, and be around people who encourage creativity and finding another way.
Here’s what I want from a career:
- Making contacts
- Speaking to different people
- Problem solving
- See results on a big scale
- Not always office-based
- Ability to work remotely
- Chance to travel
- Work laptop and phone
- Go to events
- Big clients
- Fashion, especially lingerie
- Open/modern office space
My Dream Job
My dream job would be working in the International team for a lingerie company, helping them expand their customer base and even have retail spaces on other continents, but why stop there? Why not work for a company that exclusively finds those opportunities for the most amazing brands in the world? Why not work in New York? Why not start my own company?
I know there’s a space for me in this industry, if not, I’ll create a space for myself.
You can do the same. Don’t ever limit your imagination when it comes to your career. You can do this.
