Have you ever felt you were going down the wrong path, maybe weren’t sure where the path was to start with, or maybe you got to the end of the path and said, “Is that all there is?” Life is way too short to not enjoy what you do in your chosen career. It scares me when I read articles or research that reflect numbers of 50-65% of the population reporting they are disappointed in their career choice or feel that their work is not utilizing their talents.
Finding jobs over the last several years has posed a challenge, but jobs are out there and they run the gambit of requiring technical school training, certification programs, college or advanced degrees. There truly is something for everyone, but not everyone does their homework to figure out their best path.
Finding job satisfaction requires a bit of work. You have to pay attention to what you like and don’t like to do both in your class time or work hours as well as in those hours when you can spend your time doing anything you want. What makes you tick? What turns you off? Are you passionate about something and want to incorporate it in your work or do you want to keep it separate? What are your Natural Abilities? Did you know they are measureable?
Job satisfaction includes doing what you are good at, being valued by those you work with and for. It includes doing what you enjoy and feeling that compensation is in line with the job and others in similar jobs. Satisfaction includes lots of things including your quality of life. Does your job satisfaction measure up?
