Do you feel like you’re stuck in a dead-end job? …do you get anxious just thinking about leaving for work in the morning? …or maybe you press the snooze button until the last possible moment just to hold onto a few extra moments of bliss?
You’re not married to your job.
Your current line of work doesn’t have to become your permanent state of being. If you’ve been feeling this way, it’s time to change your thinking. Start identifying what you’re passionate about and look for ways to make your passions a part of your career path.
Everyone wants success and happiness in life and that often starts with what you do for a living. Finding work that a good fit for you is all about self-exploration. If you’re a type A personality, that likes things organized and in order, then this post is for you.
We’ve identified a few career choices that might not be on your radar but that you may want to consider.
If your closet looks like a Pinterest photo and your pantry is fully labeled with baskets and coordinated food containers, you might just be able to help a lot of people with their biggest flaw – being unorganized. People pay to have their homes organized from closet to kitchen and you could make a lot of money being the one to do it.
Not everybody is as detailed as you are.
You’ll be able to bring feng shui and harmony to other’s cluttered spaces. Consider offering personal organization services or even hosting workshops or paid demonstrations on how to have an organized home. You might work for a home staging company to help them showcase storage space and options on the homes they service. Or maybe even write a book series on bringing calm to chaos. No matter which path you choose, your skill set is valuable. Use it!
Are you the go-to girl in your social circle that’s always organizing the events? Do you have a love for planning, choosing the perfect location, staying on budget, decorating, and keeping everyone on point? If this sounds like you, you could definitely make a living using those skills.
If you’re passionate about celebrations and events, event planning is the perfect field for you to consider. What some see as tedious, you see as exciting. From weddings and birthdays to corporate events and conferences, the possibilities are vast for you.
Ever watched a commercial and wondered how it actually made it all the way to your television screen? …or did you cringe at H&M’s recent marketing debacle? You might just be a closet ad exec. If you have a way with words or have a good eye for design, a career in advertising could be your true calling.
While knowing the effective qualities of a good advertisement may seem like the only criteria; strong emotional intelligence, being results-driven, having empathy, killer writing skills, and loyalty are actually the characteristics companies look for in an advertising executive candidate. Sound like you? It might be time to take a close look at this industry.
Working as a procurement manager might not have ever crossed your mind as a potential career choice. But if you’re highly organized and have a thing for execution, you will thrive in this environment. In this role, you’re in control of purchasing, ordering, handling the logistics and approving the receipt of the goods.
Sound boring… or not really sure if this field interests you?

If you like to be in control of the process from start to finish, this role is perfect for you.
