A new survey by The Institute for Optimum Nutrition has found that only 5% of people in the UK are working in their ‘dream’ job.

A fifth of people said that they believe their age is a barrier to a career change, while 10% said they did not have the confidence to job hunt.

The survey found that the “anxieties of financial uncertainty, embarrassment of being at the bottom of the career ladder and fear of unsupportive family and friends” are stopping people from pursuing their dream jobs.

Top tips to landing your dream job:

  1. Make sure you are passionate about the career you want to go into; changing careers is not easy – it takes time, money and determination so you’ve got to really want it
  2. Think about that job you want to do and then do your research really thoroughly about how to get there. Explore all the different avenues so you can make an informed decision
  3. Talk to as many different people as you can in the industry you want to go into, to give you an idea of what it’s really like, how they got to where they are, and what they recommend to someone just starting out
  4. When you follow a passion-driven career it doesn’t really feel like you’re working because you love what you do. But that can be a trap; make sure you have clear boundaries between your work and the other aspects of your life.
