KEY POINTS ON RESEARCHING

What Is Researching With Regards To Career?

This simply means to investigate systematically. When selecting a career path, you need to research to determine which type of job is the best choice for you. This can be done by Investigating your options or core areas – which are: your motivations, values, and interests. You need to be sure of what motivates you, what your values and your interests are.

Studies have linked the understanding of these core areas in an individual to greater job satisfaction and professional success. Therefore, exploring these core areas in the form of your career interests, motivations and values is usually the first step to knowing yourself because it helps you develop as a person. 

This becomes necessary when you have no idea what you want to do in your career. For the majority of people, this usually happens when they need to make a decision at a young age, also, the need may arise later on in life, for example, when you decide to change careers(Planning For The Future; chapter 4 of Your Customized Guide To Immediate Employment).

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘find what you like doing the most and then get someone to pay you to do it? Well, this is exactly how knowing your core areas can help you choose a career.

Using the above explanation, Researching companies during a job application, helps you identify exactly what to look into when applying to potential employers and their companies. Having taken time to identify your career path (Planning For The Future; chapter 4 of Your Customized Guide To Immediate Employment), this becomes easier through the help of the three core areas which help serve as a pointer to the type of jobs you should apply for. 

What To Research As A Job Applicant

As an applicant, the knowledge and understanding of your core areas listed above can also be applied to companies when searching for a job. You can carry out research of any organization that you intend to join by investigating using the following points:

  1. What do they offer?
  2. What is the company’s culture?
  3. How legitimate are they?

Having adequate information in these areas will help you avoid mistakes that can hinder your career growth and success through accepting a job in a company that is not in-line with your motivations, interests, and values.

Task: Having done your research about the company, now use the following questions to match the information you got during your investigation:

• What is the career/job you have selected?

• What attracted you to this career/job?

• What are the main benefits and drawbacks to the career/job?

• What are the day-to-day responsibilities of the career/job?
