Having your dream job may seem like just that ... a dream. But you have the power to make it happen!

Waking up every day to go to a job that you don't like, that doesn't fill you up, and that you don't see yourself (or want to) do for much longer, is exhausting. This situation also leads you to be unproductive and to leave important years of your life doing something of which you are not proud or happy. Also, being honest, you do not give the company the good energy it seeks for the position you are occupying. So everyone loses you and them, because neither of you feels happy and satisfied.

Now, imagine that, on the contrary, every day you wake up to go to a job that you are passionate about, which is what you have always dreamed of and that you feel extremely lucky to do. How would your life change? We assure you that a lot and that it would be easier for you to achieve your professional goals working on something that you really love.

This all sounds great, but how do you get your dream job? Although there is no formula that will magically give it to you, there are certain points that you must take into account to build the path to that job that you want so much.


Reflect on what you want in your life and what your goals are

First of all, you must know what it is that you really want. Perhaps you have known since childhood, but, if this is not the case, then you should start by reflecting on who you are, what you want in this life, what you are most passionate about and would like to do forever, and what are your goals.

So exactly firstly you have to ask yourself, how old am I today, and at what age will I have my dream job by hook or crook, and then you have to start making plans to achieve your goals. 

By doing an introspective analysis you will be able to define what your dream job is and get down to work to achieve it.


Prepare yourself and get the necessary knowledge

Now, knowing what you want, you must prepare and obtain the knowledge that will allow you to do that job. In short: study a university degree in the area that interests you.

The studies will give you the theoretical tools you need to have to develop yourself in the job of your dreams. They will make you grow as a person, learn from the experience of your teachers and meet other people with the same interests.

Definitely, university studies will be your main ally to achieve the professional goals that you set for yourself and be an invaluable work element because without them you will not have the necessary knowledge to do your job well.


Take time for your passion

If you really want to have the job of your dreams, you must dedicate time to the studies that will lead you to obtain it. This could be complicated if you currently have another job that you must keep because it helps you pay the bills, but the good news is that you can choose to pursue university studies in a semi-schooled system, which is a flexible modality that allows you to study and work at the same time. because the load of subjects is less and the schedules that it handles are open.

That free time that this type of system gives you can also be used in other activities that give you the opportunity to continue developing your passion to become number one in your area of ??interest. But still you have to manage time to study to score well so To achieve good marks you have to make plans and remember how many days until exams. 


Never stop learning and preparing

In a world that is constantly changing (and is changing faster and faster), there is no doubt that the people who stop learning new things are the ones who are left behind, the ones who fail to grow or fulfill their job dreams.

Therefore, you should never stop preparing, studying, obtaining new knowledge. Even if you are currently a guru in your area, tomorrow you may stop being one because there is a new universe of information, techniques, and tools that emerged for the type of work you do.

As you can see, professional studies are the ones that will lead you to get the job of your dreams, and constant learning to maintain a good job level and to be always up-to-date.

Investing in your training will give you pure good things, so the effort of time and money you make to study for your university degree will be worth it.
