Getting The Right Job: Hitting The Bulls Eye

Dr. Papiya Bigoniya

Abstract
Many of us are so keen in getting a job that we forget to see whether the job profile would suit our likes and dislikes, and the result is that quite a few of us land up taking jobs that are in no way complementary to our personality. Before starting to look for a job we should properly do a self-assessment while taking into consideration the skills and abilities we have. From this you can narrow down the list of jobs which will fit your personality. Such streamlining also helps you to narrow down your search options and thus reduce the time you spend on searching.
