A long-term goal should be something that you are passionate about and that you are excited to work towards.
There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a long-term goal:
1. Make sure that your goal is realistic and achievable. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by setting unrealistic goals.
2. Make sure that your goal is specific. Don’t just say “I want to be successful”. Define what success means to you.
3. Make sure your goal is relevant to your current situation.
4. Make sure that your goal will make you happy and/or improve the world in some way.
5. Set a deadline for when you want to complete the goal (this can be a few months, a year, or several years from now).
6. Work backward and create a long-term goal worksheet that will help you plan out how to achieve your goal.
7. Finally, make sure that you have a backup plan if the first path to achieving your long-term goal doesn’t work out as planned.
There are several steps involved in creating a long term employment goal:
1) Determine your interest and skills.
2) Do some research to determine industry trends and employment growth.
3) Compare the annual wages of different occupations that interest you.
4) Find out what sort of training or education is required for jobs that sound interesting to you.
5) Identify a few specific companies you would like to work for and learn about any internships or entry-level jobs that they offer.
6) Identify the steps you will need to take to achieve your long-term employment goal.
7) Implement the first step towards achieving your long-term employment goal.
8) Set a deadline by which you would like to achieve your long-term employment goal.
9) If you have not achieved your long-term employment goal by the deadline, reevaluate whether or not this is a realistic and achievable goal for you, then create a new plan to achieve it.
10) Don’t give up! Persistence greatly increases your chances of achieving long-term goals.
For example, if your long-term employment goal is to become a nurse and you love caring for people.
Here are the steps you could take to achieve that goal:
1) Research what sort of education and training is required. You can talk to some nurses at hospitals or nursing homes in your community, visit local colleges, or check out the book “So You Want To Be A Nurse” at the library.
2) Do some research to determine what the current trends are in your desired field of work. Is there a growing need for nurses in your community? What is the long-term employment prognosis for nurses?
3) Identify opportunities to get experience in the field of work you are interested in, such as volunteer positions or internships with nursing homes.
4) Decide which company you would like to work for and find out if they offer any entry-level jobs. Look on their website, call them up or visit them in person to get more information about available opportunities.
5) If necessary, enroll in an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree program at a local community college (or university) that offers the type of training you need to work in your desired job.
