Common Career Myths

Feb 17, 2021

Confused about Career?
Here at Kumari Job, we help you bust a few of the most common career myths. Let’s see what they are.

One Perfect Career:
Well, no one has a perfect career. We are humans and humans are imperfect, so how can we expect our career to be perfect? The fact is there are many perfect jobs for you which primarily depends upon your position in life. Had it been one perfect career, you would have been the Hawking, Jobs or Mozart of that career. The key to success is the concept of basic fit and there are numerous likely-to-fit careers for a lot of organized, competent and bright people like us.

Am I only the one confused about my career?
You should know the fact that you are unique which doesn’t mean you are entitled and it is normal to be confused about your career, about your future. Why not be so confused, right? Hey, but the fact is everyone is confused. There are tons and tons of people who are as concerned about their future career as you are and there’s nothing bad about it. This sense if lost is just the start of your research phase. This means you have started to think and now the only thing remaining is: your action towards the goal.

I have much time:
Well, the statement is as incorrect as it may seem correct. People tend to fall into this trap thinking they have time, when the fact is they don’t. As John Mark Green wrote in his poem, “Taste the Wild Wonder”:
“I blinked my eyes
and in an instant,
decades had passed.”
You can surely feel the weight of these words. The thing with time is that, it’s an illusion. As true as it may seem, it’s a career mirage that leaves behind the scars of unfulfilled potential.

Changing career is equivalent to starting anew:
As there is nothing like one perfect career, and shifting your career from your present to something new career is just an instance away. Believe it or not, changing your career doesn’t mean abandoning your present skill set. The next time you start your career, you are starting with experience which is a 10 folds better than your competitor who just started.

Next set of myths will be busted in days to come. Till then, wear a mask; good days are just around the corner.
