Radio Blue Mounatins presenter Julie Ankers admits her program Love What You Do is labour intensive but wouldn't have it any other way. She believes that to have major impact on the Blue Mountains job market her program needs several hours of weekly research on job market trends and availability, current information on training and career development and interviews with employers and employees about why they love what they do.
"Too many people have jobs that they are not suited to and dislike. Our aim is to educate job seekers about what suits their talents, skills and personality so they can identify a position and hopefully career that makes getting up in the morning, worthwhile."
She added that life was too short to not enjoy what you will spend most of your life doing but admitted that many people find work just to pay the bills. Lack of work choice in the Blue Mountains was also an obstacle.
"It isn't easy to always find what you're good at and lack of career choice doesn't help but Love What You Do encourages and motivates listeners to widen the search by offering the "why and how to". We are expected to work much longer and need to think in terms of "life-long learning". It's important our listeners explore and identify careers, gain required skills and knowledge to work in areas where they love what they do.
