‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ We’ve all been asked it, but sometimes it seems like a question that was easier to answer when we were children.
As kids, our dream job was often whatever we were fascinated with at the time, and was prone to change daily. We fully believed in our power to become whatever we wanted, from rock stars and astronauts to dog trainers and fire-people, we didn’t doubt for a second that our future would be extraordinary.
Adult life has a rather unkind way of knocking this sense of belief and imagination out of us, hitting us with boring practicalities that didn’t even cross our minds years ago.
Here at My Learning Online, we say a big NO THANK YOU to dream-dashing, as we strive to revive that childlike sense of wonder and excitement you once felt about your career prospects.
A great way to start is to find a job you are passionate about – is it practical, creative, hands-on, active? What are your top priorities when looking for a job – perhaps work environment, salary, the opportunity for promotion; would you prefer to be self-employed and work to your own schedule?
These are all important questions to ask yourself in order to choose a career that makes you feel inspired to jump out of bed each day and dive into your work. From here, you can then decide how you want to go about achieving your goals – whether you have some prior knowledge or are a total beginner, taking a short business course in your chosen field can be an extremely beneficial way to jump-start your work life and set you on an upward trajectory.
At My Learning Online, all of our training comes in the form of online courses, which means you have the flexibility to organise your learning around your schedule. All our courses come with a downloadable brochure and further information about course overview and content, module breakdowns, accessing your learning online, tutor support and tuition payment plans.
If you have any questions that you can’t find the answers to on our website, don’t hesitate to get in contact – we’d love to hear from you!
To help you on your way, we have done some research and compiled a collection of some of the best jobs in New Zealand, along with also some of the highest paying jobs in New Zealand, depending on your passion and priority.
Without further ado, let’s get to it!
