Holly’s Answer

Hi Xavier, great question! To start off, I think it's important to remember that knowing the job you are in is a great opportunity / that you love it can take time. I have had jobs that I loved at first and then the deeper I got into them I realized they were not a good fit, and vice versa, so I would say be patient with yourself if you aren't sure how you feel about the job in the first few weeks/months. Once you've been in the job for a bit, you will start to notice if you have chances to push yourself and learn and grow, that is how I knew when I was in a job that was a great opportunity, you never want to feel bored/not challenged! For the jobs where I know that I loved the job it is when I notice that I am looking forward to doing the work I am tasked with or excited to start a new project. I personally don't really believe in the saying "if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life" because work is still work, but if you are enjoying what you are doing then it is much easier to do the work and not wish you were doing something else. Hope that helps!

Jeff’s Answer

Thank you for your question. I had a number of jobs in the first 2 years after graduating from college, none of which were long lasting or very interesting. When I found a job in finance, it was the first job that I looked forward to getting up everyday and going to work. I found that it fit my personality and utilized my skills more than anything I had done before.

When you find a job where you feel comfortable with the people, use your skills and feel appreciated and rewarded, you will know it!

Livia’s Answer

Hi Xavier,

Great question! When I first started college, I didn't want to go to school forever so I researched careers that had growth opportunities but also paid well. I did my first two years and I just hated it. I, then, switched my major and went to law school. I also knew I was meant to be a lawyer. Everyone I met would tell me that I should be a lawyer because of my personality. I'd say sit there and assess yourself. Find what you love. Your career should be a personality match. Life is too short to not do what you love. The number of years you go to school shouldn't be a barrier to doing what you love. Good luck!

Doug’s Answer

To answer your question, you have to spend time with your self and check in about how you enjoy the job or not.
Sometimes we get caught in working and it becomes a part of our daily routine. Spending time to check in with your self and really understanding if this is motivating you, fulfilling to your life's goals, and reflecting on the work you do.

Thank you comment icon thx doug i appreciate u answering my question xavier
