Are you loving your job this Valentine’s Day?
Not everyone springs out of bed every morning desperate to get to work, but this doesn’t mean you can’t find your job enjoyable and well worth doing.
As it is Valentine’s Day, it’s a good time to assess how you feel about your job and whether there are any changes you could make. Here are a few pointers to start you thinking along the right lines and start loving your job…
If you loathe your job, it’s time to leave
There’s a huge difference between looking forward to the weekend and dreading every Monday morning. This could be a sign that the job isn’t right for you. If you complain about it all the time, feel miserable while you’re there and can’t think of one thing you like about it, it’s time to start job hunting.
Be open to new challenges
Some sectors and jobs may not be your first choice when searching for a new job, particularly as a graduate. You might have a fixed idea of what you want to do, but it’s important to be open to new things.
An unexpected job role could surprise you in how much you enjoy and excel at it, and it could even turn into your dream career. You never know, it could even change your life.
A prime example of this is recruitment, as the team at Amoria Bond know only too well. Many of the graduate candidates who come through our doors say that they’ve found themselves in recruitment when it wasn’t their first choice of career - but they end up absolutely loving it and thriving in their role too.
Until you try it, you simply don’t know how many exciting opportunities it could bring. It just goes to show that you shouldn’t close yourself off to new things, as it could be just what you were looking for all along.
Find the right company
Sometimes, loving your job isn’t actually about the sector you’re in or the work you’re doing. It can often come down to the company you work for. If you find the right fit with your career goals, work ethos and personality, things can just click. This is why companies put so much effort into finding the right person for roles, as well as looking at their experience and qualifications on paper.
Don’t forget about job benefits
If you find the right company, you could also discover that they offer great benefits that can make your job just that bit more enjoyable. Work hard, and enjoy perks that help you achieve that vital work/life balance and ensure you feel rewarded for your efforts too.
Need help loving your job? Just ask!
In many companies, there is a strong culture of support and development for all team members. This means that there’s a part of your job that you don’t enjoy, perhaps due to a lack of skills or training, this is something that can be worked on together.
