Everyone deserves to be happy in life, whether it is in the home environment, social environment and even at work. That is why it is very important for one to make sure that they choose their friends and spouses carefully. It is also important to choose wisely when seeking a career. One of the most important things is for you to go for something that you enjoy doing, although this might not be so easy in some circumstances. Below are some of the things that you should take into consideration when going for a job.

Happy Career

Know your requirements

Determine what really matters to you. For example, are you after becoming a manager or an individual contributor? Is money the most important thing? Would you like to travel? Do you want to work from home?

It’s all about the people

When you think about how much time we spend with co-workers, it’s crucial to find great people to work with. Go for people that inspire you to be your very best. Think of how they make you better and vice versa.

Take your time

When you’ve decided that it’s time to make a transition, be patient. Attend many meetings and get to know people as you grow your network. Do your homework and find out what you want to do, then find the place that allows you to do that.

It’s not about finding a new job right now; it’s about finding the right role, at the right time, with the right people.

Run to a job, never from it

There comes a point when you feel like your career is stuck in a rut, and the best advise here is not to make a rush decision and ran away from the job. Do your best to find a role that inspires and excites you. Running away should never be an option and that is why it's important to find something that motivates you for the right reasons. This way, you'll running towards the perfect role.

Steps to Turn Your Passion into a Career

Never be afraid to try something different. Try out new things as you grow your network and learn new skills. This could be the domino that will set you in the direction of your dream opportunity.

These are just some of the things that you should consider, although there are many more. Now we are going to look at the impressive career of Mark Dubowitz. He is the CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a Washington, D.C.-based nonpartisan policy institute, where he leads projects on Iran, sanctions, countering threat finance, and nonproliferation.

He is an expert on Iran’s global network including the regime's nuclear, terrorist, missile and cyber threats to the United States and other allies. Mark is also one of the major influencers in creating sanctions policies to counter the threats emanating from Iran and others.

Jay Solomon of the Wall Street Journal featured Mark as one of the key “financial warriors” against Iran in his 2016 book “The Iran Wars.” Politico magazine also featured him as one of the leading experts in Washington when it came to policies challenging Iran’s bad behavior, terming him as “...constantly thinking up—and promoting—new ways to squeeze the regime...” H was also branded as "politicians' brain trust on Iran sanctions ... carving a niche in the charged debate on Iran with intensive research and sheer intellectual firepower."

Mark has advised the last three presidential administrations, including Trump’s and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle on Iran issues and testified well over twenty times before universal legislatures.

Mark heads FDD’s Center on Sanctions and Illicit Finance authored and co-authored over twenty studies on economic sanctions and Iran's nuclear program. He is widely published and cited universally media. He lectures on sanctions and international negotiations at the University of Toronto's Munk School of Global Affairs, where he is a senior fellow. Mark has a master’s degree in international public policy from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies, and law and MBA degrees from the University of Toronto.

I can bet that you're thinking what an impressive career he has. The truth is that you too can chart your way to your career. Follow the steps mentioned earlier and you'll be on the right track.
