So what’s going on? I get asked questions all the time about the “adult” job search. I believe that there are three levels of self-awareness. I am about the third level of self-awareness. I can acknowledge that I have a job and that I want to get one, but I am not at all self-aware.
I am one of the most self-aware people I know. I don’t need to be told “I want to get a job,” because I know I want to get a job. I recognize that I need to be on a career path. I recognize that I want to find a job that will help me in my personal life, but I am not self-aware of what that means.
