Question: I am having a hard time trying to find a job. I have an Associates degree in ART, and SCIENCE and Applied science in Computer Information Systems. Also have my bachelors in University Studies. While I got these because it seems that’s what you need now a days I don’t feel like I am fulfilling my purpose in life. I’m a Navy veteran and I cant get a break with all that college and experience under my belt. – Ty
Answer: Hi Ty. Many thanks for reaching out. It is really hard in job search (and in life!) when you feel like you’re doing all the right things, but nothing is materializing. To compound that, being off purpose is disorienting – which way does one go instead?
It might be worth a doing a reset in your search, taking a step back about what you really want and what will work for you. In looking at your chart, I see a few strong energies that I hope will help – not only in evaluating if a job is in line with your purpose, but also if a role and an environment are a good fit.
- Caring and Compassion. There is a very strong signature in your chart for being of support to others. To have an outlet in your work life where you are allowed to be of help and nurture others would be transformative for you.
- Independence and Action. You’ve got a natural fire in your chart and I imagine that it might feel restricted right now due to current circumstances. Put some energy behind this – what lights you up? What makes you happy? You’ve got something to say and the desire to put actions behind your words. Is there something you’d like to advocate for?
- Stability and Groundedness. It would do a world of good for you to have a sense of calm and security. Take good care of your resources and choose options that will provide. Cultivate self reliance. Stay clear of drama filled workplaces – keep good boundaries. Look for ways to practically contribute with tangible outcomes.
In addition, I wonder if you may have difficulty believing in your ideas. I would encourage you to take some time to think about who you are as a unique individual and how you would like to help others. Start from the inside, rather than looking to what the latest job trends say.
Best to you in your search,
