Signs you’ve landed your dream Job in Qatar
By : Fazmina Samat
The hunt for the perfect job isn’t just about finding a role that pays your bills. It is about discovering a professional haven where your skills align with the culture and opportunities of the workplace. In Qatar’s thriving job market, here are a few signs to help you identify if you’ve landed upon the ideal job match.
Limitless growth opportunities
Do you see yourself moving up the corporate ladder within the company?
Are there plenty of chances to grow? If so, this could be the ideal job for you.
Many individuals seek roles that offer room for promotion, increased pay and a rewarding career route rather than staying stagnant for years. While a clear set path isn’t necessary, it’s vital to recognize the potential for growth by excelling in your work and having opportunities available.
Your job offers optimal work-life balance
Any job that is labelled as ‘perfect’ that undermines mental well-being, personal relationships or the balance between work and personal life is deceptive. A fulfilling job enables success while accommodating your social life, mental health and overall wellbeing. Your job, if perfect, can afford the opportunity for regular breaks during challenging times, the true enjoyment of personal hobbies and the nurturing of meaningful relationships with family and friends.
You are not tensed on Saturday evenings
For nearly 80% of employees, Saturday evenings mark the end of the weekend, signalling the forthcoming return to over 40 hours of work. However, when working in your dream job, you tend to embrace these Saturdays or Sunday evenings without any worry. Typically, instead of worrying, you’ll be finding ways to organize your work attire and tasks for the coming week. It is then a clear indication that you gain genuine satisfaction from your role, making it the most fitting position for you.
No more Sunday blues
When your alarm goes off on Sunday morning, and you don’t instantly hit the snooze button, it’s a testament to your work being the source of inspiration. If you’re the kind of person to start the day energetically, or you feel motivated to tackle the next task for the day, this is a strong indicator that you’ve chosen a job that aligns perfectly with you and your routine.
You can’t stop talking about your job
This is when you find yourself sharing more about your work than yourself, which can be annoying for some, considering if they dislike their jobs. Nevertheless, continuously expressing great enthusiasm or positivity about your job is a strong indicator that you’ve found the right job fit. It is essential to strike a balance between not overwhelming your family and friends with excessive work-related stories.
You go the extra mile in work
While many view work as a chore or battle, doing the bare minimum to get through each day or month, landing your dream job means you are not merely surviving. You are thriving! You are enjoying your work. You approach work with a positive attitude, consistently showing up, and displaying enthusiasm to accomplish tasks. Eagerly participating in meetings, and if required to do so will extend work hours to consistently exceed expectations for the job demands.
You don’t check the clock to time-out
There are two types of employees; those who constantly monitor the clock and wonder why the time doesn’t seem to fly and those who occasionally glance at the clock and are surprised that it’s already 5.00 pm. If you find yourself unaware of the office clock and are frequently surprised at how fast the time goes by, it is a reassuring sign that you enjoy your work.
You resonate with the company culture
While your prospective workplace may not be the same as a typical “Google Office”, the resonation of your values and the company culture has a significant impact. Considering you’ll be investing over 40 hours a week in this environment, you’ll need to feel comfortable and straightforward with it. Your personality will be in harmony with the work culture, be it through the dress code or structure of the job setting, if you’ve found it to be peace of mind, consider it as a blessing.
If these signs apply to you while working in the Qatari workspace, it means you’ve struck gold! It is all about finding that perfect match in this vibrant professional landscape!
