How To Find A Challenging Job That’s Right For You

San Diego, California (NAPSI) - “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day  in your life” is advice attributed to Confucius and an idea popular  with many career-minded Americans today.

With that in mind, Krista Davis, Regional HR Director for Reckitt  Benckiser, whose entrepreneurial culture has made it an attractive workplace  environment for many, has the following suggestions as you contemplate your  next career move:

1. Determine your unique skills:  What are your strengths? What makes you happy? What talents and abilities do  you have that most people don’t?

2. How do you like to work: Do  you prefer interpreting and critically assessing information? Putting  abstract ideas and concepts together or taking them apart? Gathering, sorting  and organizing information or figuring out calculations? Or matching,  selecting and making sure directions and standards are followed correctly?  Would you rather work with people, with things or with concepts?

3. Where do you like to work? A  small regional office? Corporate headquarters? A home office? How often do  you like to work away from home? Do you like to travel? Some companies  encourage employees to experience the work culture of other countries.

4. Create a road map: Where do  you want to be in five or 10 years? Develop a road map to get to where you  want to be and stick to it.

5. Test the waters: Try an  internship or apprenticeship to see if the job is right for you and to get  your foot in the door.

6. Look for a company that shares  your values: That may mean working for a nonprofit or for a major  corporation that contributes time, merchandise and money to sick children,  endangered species, great art or something else you care about.

7. Work hard: An internship is  a chance to show how you can add value to the organization, so build your  personal brand from day one. It’s a good move to treat an internship  like an interview, and always remember that you don’t see everyone who  sees you. Many people prefer an internship where you get to make decisions  from the beginning, work with real brands you’ve already heard of, work  with a multicultural group of driven people and earn more money for more  effort.

Davis’ company is a global consumer goods leader in health, hygiene  and home products, the portfolio of which includes iconic brands such as  Clearasil, Mucinex, Lysol and Woolite. According to Randy Bolenbaugh, Sales  Analyst at RB, the company gives colleagues ownership of projects from day  one. The people who work there have an intense drive for achievement and a  desire to outperform wherever they focus.

Said Bolenbaugh, “I was able to develop a better understanding of  the business early in my internship and own my projects the same way other  full-time employees on my team were doing. I challenged myself to overdeliver  on everything I did, and that’s what made me stand out.”

The multinational corporation—it has operations in over 60  countries, headquarters in the U.K., Singapore, Dubai and Amsterdam, and  sales in almost 200 countries-is looking for highly skilled, ambitious  professionals, new graduates and interns who want a fast-paced, challenging  and rewarding career to fill positions in sales, marketing research and  development.
