The most satisfying part of my career is at least once in every 2-3 months, I learn something new. I get very excited when I learn something new. I will share that I graduated with an engineering degree a while ago...I mention that because I have always been a very curious person...always asking questions about how something works or why something works the way it does. That curiosity has lead me to a love of learning. Even recently, I am still learning new coding languages that I get to apply to my work.
The other things, like the type of work I do and financial rewards/salary, those generally fall into the right place when you do work that you enjoy and when you are good at it...and I can tell you that most often when you enjoy what you do, you will naturally be good at it.
May seem like a simple answer but I hope it helps. Best of luck to you!

The most satisfying part of my job as a mechanical engineer is solving problems and meeting new people. I suggest that you make a list of things that interest you and then look for jobs or professions that will allow you to do those things that you find important.
