Job profile vs actual work. Analyse 

  • How does it feel when the job you do is not what you really wanted to do . 

    How does it feel when your career aspirations are not in sync with work you do 

    How does it feel like when the role you play isn’t what you were looking for 

    How does it feel like working aimlessly and get nothing out of it 

    Of course everything what you do at office may not be an interesting task but is it driving you towards ur career aspirations? Towards ur goal ?

    Think where will you see yourself 2 yrs from now 4 yrs from now by doing the work you are currently doing. Are there any ladders you see to take a step forward towards ur goal.?

    Are you learning anything new ? Is your currently role and work enhancing ur skill set And making u more marketable ? 

    Do you feel motivated at your work place ?

    I’m sure you have to introspect these things as and when you become more experienced person . 

    These are few discussion I did with one of my friend who wanted me to suggest on whether he should be changing the job and company or not . 

    I’m sure he will find the answers within.

  1. No job is perfect , no place is perfect and no People surrounding are perfect , actually Shrishti ka Dosh nahin Drishti ka dosh hai ,.. its we who is imperfect in the surrounding situations, I agree to Prajakta we should try to give a try and match ourselves in the opposite circumstances with gratitude , if we try and do so we will see, it comes in our habit and very soon we sink in the perfect place and the place perfectly in us . it’s just my experience , don’t take it as criticism :):) all my best wishes 🙂

    1. Thanks . I’m not telling u change the job immediately after joining. There are situations in corporate organisation where u r in a role for a longer time and u aren’t happy with the work or the role and u don’t find the growth. So why be there and miss the good opportunities outside . may be better than this . u keep trying to adjust yourself , u do not feel motivated and nothing to learn .. And u miss the good chances outsides the current role.. BTW its not my story 🙂 I’m doing good.

  2. This is an interesting post. I always tell my children that they have to do some things they don’t want to do, in order to do the things they want to. We must learn to embrace the journey because when we look back, that’s what we’ll remember. – Good post and good thoughts!

    1. Thanks . challenges are good. But you should have vision and see if ur current work is leading towards the goals. Of course u enjoy the journey that way. Thanks for the inputs ..

      1. I truly believe that all of our work, even thought we can’t always see it, leads us to our ultimate destiny. I heard someone say one time that you can only connect the dots looking backwards. It wasn’t until I was in my 40’s that I understood what that meant. Sometimes, we may be doing things that are seemingly unrelated to where “we” see ourselves, but if we pay attention, we can learn lessons from each experience and apply them moving forward. God has us where we need to be all the time and if we trust him for our destiny, he will see us to an expected end.

      2. I would love it if you could check out my blog. We’re just getting started and I would value your feedback. If you feel compelled, please subscribe. I post 2 times per week but looking to increase to 3. Thanks!

    1. U wil have to chose what makes u happy. What u r passionate about. And once u start working u wil have to continuously analyse how u r growing in ur current role. Self analysis u see.. Don’t worry u will learn it urself .. 😉

      1. Yeah, maybe…
        I need to be prepared you know, but sometimes losing the interest in a particular field scares me…but we have human tendency to fit in what we chose, so I think with time, I will get accustomed to it..

  3. Very well written, Suprith! One should keep gaining experience and keep striving for something better. In the initial age, i believe, one can experiment with his choice of work and that’ll really help one to enjoy his work in later age. Work doesn’t even feels like a job if it is of our choice, it seems fun instead. But seems like a burden if it’s not of our interest and lacks growth.
    “Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

      1. I got it. So u should now either do justice to urself or justice to ur job function which u r currently doing.. Think about it friend.. Do share what else is going on in ur mind

  4. How does it feel when the job you do is not what you really wanted to do .
    How does it feel when your career aspirations are not in sync with work you do

    How does it feel like when the role you play isn’t what you were looking for…. You feel like Varun Agarwal.
    You get frustrated. Mad. Alone. And then you set up a million dollar company. End of the story.

  5. These are so accurate questions ,one need to ask themselves once in a while .
    At the end of the day we have got only one life ,we can either spend it on sulking what we don’t like doing or we can take few risks and keep looking for things which are more apt for us .
    Thanks for writing this post

  6. Sometimes we get demotivated at work because of many reasons, that is why they always say do not make a decision when you are feeling down. Unhappiness, demotivation, feeling lost can always happen, what you need to do is re-evaluate if what you right now is preparing you for your better future. Also, continues education and acquiring “future proof” skills can be a good diversion of attention if you are feeling burnout with work. That is why, I have made it a point that my members are taking online classes, part of their CDP to improve their capability and acquire new skills to prepare them for their future plans. I had them signed up with Career Academy
