Ashley’s Answer

Doing something you love or working with people that you love can make a big difference in your overall happiness! It's also important to remember that all jobs will likely be stressful, and it helps to separate your personal and professional life. Make sure that you have adequate time to "recover" on the weekends. Give yourself and others around you grace.

Hi - for me, I've found it's about doing something you love and feeling like the work you are doing has an impact / makes a difference. I also find that the people you work with are an important part of this equation - you spend a lot of time at work, so it's important to do something you enjoy with people you enjoy doing it with (and can hopefully be inspired by!). In those moments of stress, anchor back to taking a deep breath or smiling to help yourself relax. Best of luck in your career pursuits!

What make people enjoy their career or their job on a daily basis. How do they manage when they get stressed out during hard times when working with customers.

People enjoy there careers when they are able to see the positives that the careers can take a person. Most of the time, people will only look at the negative parts of their career in the short term. However, they should look at there careers for the long term, such as how there experience at there current career will benefit them in the long run.

An example of this is with pay. If we assume a person is not satisfied with their current pay, and they have plenty of experience (example: 4 years+) then they have the opportunity to make more money at the next place they are able to get a job. Think of it as a stepping stone, there may be days where your job will SUCK, but there will always be a way to improve in further down the career path.

Working with customers is tricky. Sometimes the best way when you get stressed is to talk to another person about any problems that you may have, either in person or on the internet. Don't keep any pent up aggressions trapped on the inside.

Dexter’s Answer

Hi Kamari,

For me, what matters most is value alignment. To be more specific, does the work that I do align with what I believe to be the correct thing to do in life? If that answer is yes, then I'm having a great day. If that answer is no... I'm not.

Two important things for me are the ability to help others in an impactful way and helping the planet Earth. The work I do happens to align with both, which helps me sleep soundly at night. I'm sure if I had a different job, I might not be so motivated. And when I do get stressed due to working with difficult people (and going through difficult situations), I try my best to reset by reminding myself of my values and thinking about the good that I'm doing.

I hope this helps and thank you for asking this interesting question!

Angela’s Answer

Hello! There are a lot of ups and downs when working in any career. I think it's important to not let either impact you too much. Keep your mental health in mind. Remember how important it is and prioritize that. Make sure you always take advantage of your PTO. That's a great way to relieve stress, even if it's just a day off at home. Lastly, it's important that you and your manager get along. If you sense there is a disconnect at any time, try to figure out a way to address it. In my experience, poor management can really stressed me out. I was able to put up with it until I was able to get promoted and move on, but it was a challenge. Try to get ahead of that if you feel you and your manager aren't in sync. I hope this helps!

What make people enjoy their career or their job on a daily basis. How do they manage when they get stressed out during hard times when working with customers.

There are many factors for what makes people enjoy their career and some things we can control while others we can't.
First is the work, the actual tasks or projects that you are responsible for completing. Do you enjoy the work?
Second is your environment, where you complete those tasks, who you work with, who you report to, how long you are expected to be present. Do you like your company? Do you like your peers/co-workers? How is it to work for your manager?

For me, those are the biggest things but here are other factors to consider as well.
-Monetary Recognition: Salary and Bonuses
-Opportunities: Career growth, key experiences for promotions, challenging work
-Resources: having the support and tools to do your job well and efficiently
-Health: Vacation/ sick days / Insurance / Benefits package
-Company culture: healthy and supportive organization that matches your values

For managing stressful situations with customers, I would hope that the organization has support in place to help with that stress. Some examples are Wellness days or paid time off (PTO), training with talking points, and rewards for completing challenging work. Individually, focus on the things you can control (ie. having a pleasant life outside of work) and keep in mind everyone is human with emotions, bad days, and sometimes thinks irrationally.

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. This is the challenges we may face everyday.
Firstly, you may find a job you have interest on. You have to work on a job for 8-10 hours everyday and 5 days a week. You can imagine how hard it is if you have no interest in the job.
On the other hand, in terms of stress management, you may need to have your own hobbies other than working. You have to assign some time to spend on your hobbies, doing exercise, gathering with your friends, relax and rest, etc. Work life balance is important to relieve stress.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

H’s Answer

I think if you pick a career you love, it’s not like work! So think about your career pathway and pick something that you love to do.

Even with a career you love it can be stressful. Especially when working with the public. If you become stressed at work try to take a break. After a hard stressful day at work try to do some thing you enjoy that is relaxing. Some people also find meditation very relaxing.
