Values first before entering the Job Market for life's Dignity and
is important for a jobseeker - a life with a career
or a career with a life? For the common man, both the scenarios
are just the same. But when we say that we need a life with
a career, it indicates our priorities to lead a life that
holds only a career. However, when we talk about a career
with life, this has a separate meaning and it points towards
a career that is enriched with a life.
‘A career with a life’
is often advised to (new) jobseekers by (international) human
resources experts as they believe this perception gives individuals
a way to lead a peaceful and satisfied life.
Harrison Barnes, an international job search guru, if anyone
wants to think that he or she should have a satisfied life, he
must learn the adoption of values in his character from time to
time throughout life.
“Values are things
that are most important to us in our lives and careers. Values create
a basis for how we view life,” says Burnes. Since we have to lead
‘a life in our life’ to show our existence in our society and among
peers, the values can only help to shape individuals in the right
perspective so that it brings praise from the society for all the
achievements. These would be based definitely on ‘certain decisions’
that he / she took due to his / her values.
It is said that a strong decision taken by an individual is responsible
for every success. “For taking a decision, it is required to take
a ‘risk’ and to take a risk it is required to be a person of rich
values. A current change in global and local markets and the emergence
of new types of careers invites decisions at every step to be taken
during the job; and our ‘learned and earned’ good values insulate
us from any ruin,” believes Erin Suess, a life and career coach.
What you honestly
want out of your life is not always easy. With our day to
day routine and daily grind, we often do not get time to really
think about who we are, and what we want out of life. The
best way to overcome this dilemma is to create a list of values
which are most important in your case. Life career scientists
have named it as ‘Creating a Values’
The latter, in fact,
helps in setting a mission in life. Though people prefer goals rather
than a mission in their life but missions bring satisfaction in
life. “Designing your own values’ statement will provide for living
your life with dignity and give you a clearer sense of direction
towards the job as well as life,” advises Mike Thomas of the Life
