Is it possible to land that dream job?

Updated: Nov 20, 2021


The answer is yes.


Possibilities are endless. Notice that we are not speaking of probabilities but possibilities.


Therefore, all things conceivable are possible, and the key to opening possibilities is to believe.


When you believe, it opens your mind and thinking to what you can achieve and sets in motion the thought energy to go about bringing what you want into fruition. You begin to create and evolve and to bend your universe toward that which you desire. Dreams can come true with believing, which plants the seed for success. The difference you make is in how you nurture that seed to turn your possibilities into reality.


Think about that for a minute...


Think about the many incidents in your life where you may have felt that you would never achieve something but it somehow happened for you. It came alive and became real to you and in your life. And what made the difference for you? Can you look back and remember that deep down you believed that it could happen? If you really and truly thought that something was impossible to achieve, then you may never achieve it.


Taken from the lyrics of Jay Z,

"Difficult takes a day. Impossible takes a week".

What is he saying here, really? That if there is a will then there's a way. It all depends on how you look at it and how you move toward making something happen.


Simply put, it may take longer for the seemingly impossible to come true to life, but that does not mean that it won't. But you must put forth some type of effort and go for it. You must have a burning desire to want to achieve a thing. Another Jay Z lyric reminds us that we have to get out of the boat to walk on water. In other words, whatever your desire or dream or want or need, you must want it and you must be willing to put in as much effort and time as it takes to realize your affirmative outcome.


This applies to desires like landing your dream job.


And yes. It is possible!


Understand, however, that your job search journey should be focused and completed in stages, as follows.


Get Prepared: The first thing to do is to get ready by making sure your resume and cover letter are updated, and nowadays, it is also a great idea to have a professionally revamped LinkedIn profile. Research polls show that about 92% of recruiters utilize LinkedIn to source for or vet job candidates.


Be sure that your resume is optimized for applicant tracking systems (ATS) with relevant keywords and phrases, as well as has relevant, engaging content and eye-catching formatting. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, it is a good idea to hire a professional resume writer to do it for you.


Network: Utilizing or building a network is important for your search for that dream job. Reaching out to existing contacts and building new relationships can make a big difference in getting closer to your goal. You can also connect with influencers and peers on social media (particularly LinkedIn) or with friends and family members who may have inside connections regarding job opportunities.


Begin Your Search: This is where your efforts need to really payoff. Be diligent about your job search, research companies and study job descriptions so that you are better prepared for interviews. It is also a good idea to meet with a career counselor and making a list of employers with which you would like to work.
