Career development part 2
As a matter of fact, after attending a careers workshop I found a very interesting vacancy to apply for in a large company. And since this company was one of my dreams to apply for a job, I send my CV.
But the important thing is that before I did send my application, I referred to the work values matrix (it's a list of statements about what we seek from a job in terms of personal value to us). And luckily, the position for which I applied coincided with what I consider important for me.
I'm not sure if this company will call me for an interview, but as long as I know what I seek from a job, and not only what a company seeks from me, I feel that I can manage my career aspiration in a better way for me. Because, the career that someone pursues must give satisfaction and personal growth, not just be a chore...

Hi Ilektra-Maria – I’m glad that the values matrix helped you to think about which jobs you might enjoy the most. How did you get on with the application?

Thank you for your interest! As a matter of fact it went very well, and I am in the first phase of the recruitment process of that company. I hope I will be able to go through all phases though!
