How to Start Working Your Dream Job

Self Made
Thursday, June 14th, 2018

It took me years to land my feet to my dream job. But, it actually only needs to answer a couple of deep questions to myself. Those questions, even I haven’t finished answering all of them, direct me to where exactly I want it to be. So, this is the route of what I did and I still do to start working on my dream job.

Dedication & Developing Skill at Others’

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of working at the UN because I would travel, speak English, and earn in Dollars, not Rupiah. Eventually, in my twenties, I got a chance to work for the UN. I was equipped with a cool UN name tag and escorted by a CD plate on Land Cruiser, —a car with the diplomatic license–, whenever I went out from the office. I thought I have landed on my dream job. Until the snob-feeling was accumulated that made my chest heavy. I didn’t enjoy the feeling whenever my on-the-field duty was seen as angelic work by the beneficiaries. I felt like I have suffered my ‘genuine giving‘ and ‘love-to-help‘ characters to the lowest level when the people who need the help putting themselves as a ‘lower human worth‘ whenever they see me with the UN name tag. Moments like those withdrawn me from staying at the UN. But, during my service, I have developed a set of incredible skills that I am still using it until now. So, nothing to lose.

To Get or To Create?

This is a fundamental question before anything else. Asking myself if I would be happy to stay in a corporate job or not. Would I be Ok enough to accept nine-to-five clockwork from Monday to Friday and enjoying my monthly salary and the weekends like most people do? Life would be simpler with less thing to care for. Fortunately, I already know that I was always happier to work on my own project on my own timeline. So, I stop updating my Resume. I focused on Creating one job that I like most. It was a struggle to find it because I liked every craft projects. Crafting is a wide ocean. And I had to pick ONE. Read here for my zigzagging journey. And this is my 4 Ultimate Questions I asked myself prior earning back my freedom and fulfilment.

However, if you believe that your dream job is at a big famous company, just enjoy reading my journey with a cup of milk. My journey to land on my dream job was in fact to CREATE, never to GET. If I can escape from the corporate job, so do you!
