Competent Communicator Project 10- How to find a job you love

Dear fellow Toastmasters and wellcome guests,

Before I start my speech, I want to do 3 quick surveys here. If your answer is 'Yes', Please raise your hand.

Do you love your job?

Do you think that your job match to your passion?

Have you heard this career advice' fellow your passion and the money will follow?

Ok. Thank you.

Let's talk about my 3rd survey first. I believe many of your must have heard about Steven Jobs Stanford commencement. There is one point that people got really excited about: "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. "


I have to admit that when I first heard this few years ago, I was so excited while worried. Because it sounds so right yet I can't figure out what I am really passionate about. I don't know what jobs fit for me.

After graduation, I was lucky enough to find a pretty good job. The position is called career development program or management trainee. I have the opportunity to rotate in 3 different positions before get to know what I really love.

Guess what? After 3 different positions, the perfect 'right' job is still nowhere. I was so concerned about trying to find the magic perfect job match to my passion that none of my 3 assignments really counts.

Michael Buble, 偶然发现的歌手,歌曲柔情浪漫,听一句就会喜欢。目前最喜欢的几首是《Something Stupid》,《Home》,《Someday》,《Something Stupid》的歌词非常可爱:


I practice every day to find some clever lines to say 
To make the meaning come true 
But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late 
And I'm alone with you  
The time is right 
Your perfume fills my head 
The stars get red  
And oh the night's so blue 
And then I go and spoil it all 
By saying something stupid  Like I love you

Tom Waits, 由于刘瑜书中的推荐去听他的专辑,不是一听钟情的类型,但是独有的“垮掉式”的颓废风格我非常喜欢,《一条吠叫的狗 美国说书人Tom Waits》介绍了他的背景。 看书的时候我喜欢播放他的歌,目前最喜欢的一首是《I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love with You》

Well I hope that I don't fall in love with you
'Cause falling in love just makes me blue
Well the music plays and you display
Your heart for me to see
I had a beer and now I hear you
Calling out for me
