What do you love about your job?
I am a high school student who has seen both the best and worst of many individuals' careers. I have seen people take up their careers, only to end up struggling to keep up with them. Lately, I haven't met many people who are happy doing what they do. Individuals have their own circumstances and reasons as to why they took up the job they are doing now. My wish is that everyone will love what they are doing, whether it is financially draining them or not. Your answers will not have a huge impact on my future career choice. This is a question created by me in hopes to be inspired by your love for your job. I wish for this alacrity to spread to others who are struggling to keep up with their own careers. career career-choice job student love inspiration appreciation love-for-job
In response to why and whether I love my job, I would say that only once I had a job I did not love. That was a brief time and I had to work there in order to become eligible for the next step. I went into every job with enthusiasm and tried not to think of the negatives. So much of your work is your attitude, and that can overcome even difficult conditions. I began as a teacher and determined to become a counselor. I had to obtain further training so I could be a school counselor. I then went back to school so I could become an administrator, and I later became a guidance director in Houston ISD. After I retired, I came back and served as a drug-free schools coordinator. Later I did training and consulting for schools and businesses and worked as a consultant for ACT. I have also had a private counseling practice for years and developed a part time business with a colleague where we provide an online scholarship database for schools and individuals. Along with that I have been a tour leader and an artist. I have always loved what I did and if I got bored, I just developed a side job or a hobby to help me develop more fun in my life. I have never been bored or rich, but I have always had fun and enjoyed my life, and I have always had enough money to have a great life. I guess my answer is I love variety, connection with others, the ability to have some element of control over my activities, the ability to exercise my creativity and joy. I think my attitude was a huge factor. I never gave up, I just looked for other challenges. I love to help others. I am also now an artist that keeps me connected with other fun people and am counseling others just as part of my gift. I will never stop learning new things and growing as a person. Hope this helps.
Working at Cisco, I am the customer zero who is experiencing how Cisco's technology and product can change the way we work, live and play. For example, with the flexible solution of collaboration, I can work anywhere anytime as long as I have the network, and it is a great help for me to balance my work and personal life.
Being as the member of IT organization here, I am very lucky to work in the team that colleagues support each other, and the leaders/managers always provide their support and guidance to me whenever required.
The good colleague, good boss, and good company culture are main reasons on why I love about my job.
Thank you for your question because I LOVE it when people ask me if I like what I'm doing. I DO, I LOVE it, and that's thanks to so many things, Like how my manager cares about us as people, how we have weekly meetings not just business but personal development. what I like especially about my job is that we work on a daily basis with people from different cultural backgrounds. but Karen, if you want to have the best out of it, adopt a positive attitude, be friends with people and learn from your peers !
Good luck !
All the best Karen !!
I definitely love my job because it combines everything that i like, it allows me to feel as an empower woman by providing guidance to my customers by challenge me to learn new things (btw im a Network consulting engineer at CISCO), it give me the opportunity to travel to different places, it allows me to give back and it allows me to balance my personal life, since I mostly work from home it give me the advantage to make my own schedules.
Hope this inspires you!
I love that I am empowered to make the best business decision for my customers. I use my critical thinking skills to make sound decisions. I like that I am not expected to be a robot, but I'm expected to ask questions and offer suggestions to better the business.
