Doing what you love for a living is important. For many, it’s impractical but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. So, here are a few tips for doing what you love for a living.
First, if you can’t get a job doing what you love, I suggest volunteering. Obtaining experience is key. If you’re a graphic designer, for example, reach out to non-profits to do their designs. They are always in need of someone to do graphic work.
Second, become educated. This doesn’t always mean attending a four year university. But any kind of education in the field you love will help your resume. Even if it’s just a few classes at a community college.
Finally, keep learning. If you love working in a recording studio don’t just fall in love with one board and one way of recording music. Stay versatile and commit to staying up to speed on the latest (and in some cases, the previous) technologies.
