Remember this throughout your career:
Getting a job is not about you.
No employer gives one bit what you’re interested in! No employer gives a damn what marks you got in your exams!
An employer (if he is going to be one for any length of time) is only interested in one thing:
creating and keeping customers, getting and keeping money!
The only reason an employer hires someone is because that person can either:
- help him/her get customers or
- provide a valuable service to the customers – thereby keeping them
SO no matter what one’s field of interest/study the big questions are:
- How does my knowledge/skill (whatever assets I have) help the prospective employer get customers/money?
- How does my knowledge/skill (whatever assets I have) provide value to a prospective employers customers/money?
If you can’t figure out the answers to these questions – get some help. Talk to some people. Read some books. Think. Put yourself into the employers shoes for a minute! How are you going to improve his world?
