Sociologists are experts on how to build and maintain careers, but how can they make sure you find one that fits your personality?
According to the sociologist, the best way to find that perfect job is to look for it yourself.
“It is a matter of personality,” she told ABC News.
“You can see the way someone’s personality is, how they have their strengths and weaknesses, and how they work.
You can see their life.
If you don’t have that, you will have problems.”
But you don`t have to be a professor to find the perfect job.
Sociologists say you can also work from home, take a job online or in a company, or find a job by contacting a mentor.
And they say the best jobs are not necessarily the ones that are best suited to the person who finds them.
According to a study published in the journal Personnel Psychology in 2012, only one-quarter of those who applied for a job in the field reported an interest in the job, and just over half of those said they were looking for a more experienced position.
The researchers, led by sociologist Laura R. Strain, concluded that a lack of knowledge of the field is a key factor in choosing the wrong job.
“The job search is a very lonely process,” said Strain.
“I would not call it a search for the best job, but a search to find something that is going to help you get the most out of your life.”
While it`s important to look at the field you`re applying to, not everyone will find what they are looking for.
“Some people think that they`ll be better suited to a job that’s not the job they`re looking for, or a job they already have,” said Rocha.
“That`s not true.”
But even if you don�t want to look further into the field, you can look at job postings, and if the positions are appealing, it can still help you find a better job.
When applying for a position, ask your mentor to tell you what kind of job they would like to see you in, said Rucha.
“If they think you`ll do a great job, then they`d be more likely to give you a good offer,” she said.
“But if you want to make sure that you`ve done your homework, you should try to work with the person that is in charge of the position, or with a mentor.”
If you want a good job, Ruchas advice is to get the right kind of experience, she said, and to have a job experience.
“They can help you with all the right things, and they can show you the right kinds of challenges,” she explained.
