New Year, New Career: Commit To Your Future In 2018
As 2017 draws to a close, you might be thinking about what you hope to accomplish in the year ahead. Maybe you want to go to the gym more regularly. Perhaps you plan to heed your dentist’s suggestion to floss your teeth more often. Or maybe 2018 will be the year you decide to go back to school to get the training you need to start a rewarding new career. That’s what we discuss in this week’s blog article, ”New Year, New Career”. So keep reading to see if this is the New Year’s resolution for you!
You Feel Stuck At Your Job
We all know that feeling of being stuck in our current job. It feels like you’ve gone as far as you can go. Like no matter how hard you work there is no more room to grow.
This can happen for a number of reasons. Maybe you are in what is often referred to as a “dead-end job” Dead end jobs are those that simply provide no possibility for career development or earning more.
Another reason you might get stuck is that you don’t have the qualifications for advancement. In this case, there might be a higher position available (supervisor, manager, etc.) but you don’t have the formal education or on-the-job experience to fill it. If this is the situation you are in, perhaps it is time to take initiative and get the training you need to take the next step!
You Are Bored
Here’s another feeling most of us can relate to: being bored at work. This usually happens when you have a job that doesn’t challenge you mentally. Unfortunately, there are a lot of jobs out there that aren’t very mentally demanding. On the other hand, there are a lot of awesome jobs out there that require you to put your mind and problem-solving skills to work!
Here at IBT in Santa Clara, we offer hands-on training for a number of careers that are mentally stimulating, including:
- HVAC technician training program
- Electrician training program
- Lab assistant, EKG technician/phlebotomist training program
- Massage therapy training program
- Medical assistant training program
- Medical biller/coder/office assistant training program
- Ultrasound technician training program
Each of the above careers requires specialized skills and knowledge. They also require you to think on your feet. These characteristics help prevent boredom at work.
You Dread Going To Work
If you feel stuck and bored at work, you probably don’t get too excited about clocking in. And that’s totally understandable! Why would you be excited about spending your days working at a boring, dead-end job? Imagine how much more you would enjoy your days if you had a career that you were excited about!
Furthermore, according to Pew Research Center, educated workers tend to be more satisfied with their careers. This may be because they get to use their specialized skills on a daily basis. So if you want a job that you actually enjoy, it might be a good idea to set your sites on getting a formal education.
