“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.” –Langston Hughes
I had this quote up on my wall during high school. Here are other “dream” quotes:
I know. If we are gonna dream, let’s dream big. But when it comes to job searching, I have heard too many people who have passed up good opportunities because it wasn’t their “dream job” or who are just waiting for their “dream job” to find them.
So here are a few ideas I have encountered for transitioning out of “Dream World” and into “Reality World” without killing the dream.
There is a lot that can be learned about the dream job you want (and the companies that have those positions) by networking with people who do what you want to do, and work where you want to work.
So, do we stop dreaming? No. But do we start making plans to transform that dream job into a real job? Yes. Dream jobs can be taken out of “dream world” by taking the necessary steps to make those dreams realities, by cultivating relationships in our networks, honing necessary skills, and acquiring expertise.
