Foyles//School of Life Minis: Finding a Job You Love

Wednesday 8th November 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Many of us have a strong (and sometimes maddening) feeling that there is a job out there that could properly satisfy us and allow us to develop our potential and talent. But we may remain troublingly vague about what exactly this job might be - and what our talents and interests really are. We feel the clock ticking mercilessly and are always under pressure to earn money and secure status.

We tend to suffer with this dilemma in private, feel ashamed of doing so, and wonder if progress can ever be made. The School of Life recognises that there are few greater challenges than finding a job we can love - and at the same time they have seen that, with the right ideas in mind, enormous progress can be made towards knowing ourselves, identifying our true goals and grasping what we should do next.

This mini-class provides a rigorous set of concepts and exercises to understand our career potential and then how to align it with the opportunities of the professional world. It helps us to explore our personalities and sift through our authentic interests. It also considers a variety of blocks and inhibitions which prevent us from pushing forward with our instincts and desires, with particular attention paid to parental and societal expectations.

You will be taken from unfocused aspirations towards a clear-headed and realistic plan as to what your next professional steps should be.

The School of Life on Calm – September
