Gone are the days where in we are focused only simply achieving in learning one skill. We should set our goals in a way that there should be PLAN A, PLAN B or PLAN C. Why? Because we all know that the kind of jobs available is not equal to the number of people taking courses related to these jobs.
We may have focused on what we wanted to be when we graduate in College, not considering if it is a highly in demand occupation. Thus we have a hard time weighing between wanting to achieve our dreams or wanting to become practical. The next question that some would ask is if they can be able to stay long enough in a good paying job but does not interest them much. How can they be successful in one job that they are only forced to do because of financial reasons and not satisfying one’s happiness?
Now, the time has come where we should not put any limitations on what we can do and achieve. We must learn to blend in with the times. This is being practical. The imbalance with the kind of jobs available to the students who have graduated with the courses that they want can never be changed if we do not go beyond what we need to do. Being practical is the key. Set forth goals that you think can be “doable” and “workable” on your end. Simply by learning other stuff especially, with regards to information technology, this could be just your edge in landing a good-paying job that you want.
Is it being too ambitious? NO! It is being practical and helping save your sanity intact, as well.
