In the summer of 2011 I found a truism in my life in the form of a quote from Ernest Hemingway, “Never confuse movement with action.”
Growing up I thought I was a pretty normal kid. Messy room, complained about chores, threw house parties when mom was out of town. I liked art but was too practical to think I could ever make a living from it, so I decided to become a doctor.
People always get excited when I tell them what I do for a living. I get to build cool websites for organizations that work for the greater good. They see how passionate I am about my work and a single question crops up without fail, "How can someone land a job they love so much?”
Though I can't promise you'll be as happy at work as I am, I can walk you through the steps I took to get here and hopefully help you land your dream job.
1. Know what you want.
