What job to do when you love nothing?
You haven't started your professional life and you don't know what to do because you don't have a passion or you don't like anything in particular? You may have started it and you want to change your job because what you do does not suit you? What to do to change direction? Fulfillment at work is not innate, especially if you do not know who you are and what you like. Here are a few tips that may help you choose your career path and/or explore the possibilities of retraining.
Why don't you like anything?
Before asking yourself which job to choose or thinking about changing your path, if you have the impression that you don't like anything in particular, perhaps identify the blocking points that make you don't like anything: you're lonely ? shy ? angry ? sad ?
Tell yourself that nothing that characterizes you is negative. On the contrary, your character traits, such as the emotions you feel: anger, sadness or what makes you happy can help you find clues to find out what you like.
For example, if global warming upsets you and makes you angry, you might want to join an organization that:
- recycles waste with Akanthas
- gives a second life to our clothes with Le Club des Simone
- develops the promotion of cycling with BicylAide
- preserves the environment and human rights through advocacy and awareness-raising with Les Amis de la Terre
If you want to fight to preserve human health, you might be interested in:
- Foodwatch France
- Develop artisanal soap factories at a player like Savonnerie Ciment
- Rethinking women's health monitoring in Jeen
Maybe you say to yourself: “doing my job does not fulfill me”. If you are currently working, what do you think makes you dislike anything? Maybe you just want to change teams, work environment? Or do you want to change jobs, give a new direction to your job? to begin a phase of retraining in a structure more aligned with your values? to change jobs?
Moreover, if this lack of fulfillment is linked to boredom at work, a lack of meaning and/or creates professional exhaustion, it is better to act rather than to continue at the risk of reaching burnout.
A skills assessment to take stock
To go further in your thinking and ask yourself the right questions to guide you, think about your professional development or retrain in a new job/sector, doing a skills assessment can provide you with answers. As part of a review, you will focus on your skills, what you can do, what you do well and what you like to do based on your past experiences and your different professional stages if you have any. This can allow you to work on changing the way you look at yourself by discovering in particular what you like to do.
An assessment is training carried out by professionals who rely on collective and/or individual support. As a group, it allows you to exchange with people with different backgrounds, and who share this problem: how to orient your career to achieve professional success? In addition, individual support is offered to deepen your own reflection. Although the assessments cost a certain price, they can often be financed via the CPF (Personal Training Account). Job seekers registered with Pôle Emploi can also request a CPF contribution from their adviser to be able to finance it.
