The apprentice online

I don’t mean the reality show The Apprentice. I mean me, the apprentice. I’m taking part in a career coaching course that happens online. For now, at least. The last week of the course is going to be live. The course is 5 weeks, and it started this Monday. It’s an early morning for me. It begins at 9 am. It’s about job search and all that. For example, how to find hidden jobs and write resumes. There are assignments to do. The course is online from 9 to 12 am, and the rest of the day, you work on the tasks by yourself. You can do them when you want. There is a lot of thinking. It’s about what you do best. Then there are 2 weeks of getting to know a job in a company of your choice. I’ve already contacted one. I didn’t get anything the last time I went to career coaching, so I hope I find one this time. It doesn’t need to be something you studied. It can be from a field you don’t know. I would prefer it if it could be something I’ve done before.

This course is not only about job search and careers. It’s also about getting to know yourself better. In a way, it’s life coaching at the same time. Maybe it’s a bit too optimistic at times to think you get to the place you want with the tips. Things don’t always go the way you’ve planned. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up. You should think primarily about your strengths and what you’re good at. Things you can’t do, you can learn. If you’re interested in it. You shouldn’t do it if you don’t care about it. Some might think I’ve given up my dreams. But it only takes a bit longer. What is the hurry anyway? I take one step at a time. Tomorrow is another day.
