I have been in different positions since my graduation from university.
In my first job, the part I liked most was learning opportunities. I was engaged in new tasks everyday, and I could felt my professional skills growing up.
In my current job, I enjoy the flexibility very much. I can get most of my jobs done in the morning or night, depends on my availability, I can balance work and life.
I think different person in different stage may enjoy different things. The key is, what do you want to achieve in short term or long term. What's your inner driver?
Carmen recommends the following next steps:
- Do a self reflection, understand what you want, what you have, what's the gap between the status quo and the goal
- List out action items following SMART principle
- Tracking the progress and make adjustment if necessary
