Is There A Perfect Job

After all these years of interviews, I'm starting to wonder if there is such a thing as a perfect job eek I just want a job where I am content with what I am doing, but I'm starting to wonder if it will ever happen-anybody else experience the same feeling? I mean sure I make a living in my profession, but I want a job that satisfies me eek Is that asking to much?

No it's not asking too much, I feel the same way you do, but your life is what you make it. If you are working a job you aren't completely satisfied in, then keep looking until you find out what fulfills you. If that means jumping from corporate america, to an animal shelter, then so be it. But maybe you need to do some soul searching, or involve yourself in some hobbies you've always thought you would like. Thats a good way to start off and see if a career change is for you. Good Luck.
I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

Thanks Missfee wink I like what I do for a living, but have been trying to get into another field for years now and I think no one wants to give me a chance because I'm a nurse mad It is very frustrating sad I'm starting to wonder if I got a degree for nothing eek I would just like to be happy at work for once.

on some days I hate my job.... who doesn't?
I really like spicy food. I mostly put Jalapenos on a lot of my food.

Calls to mind Grace Jones, "I'm not perfect, but I'm perfect for you."
That's the job you want. But you have to determine what you enjoy and would do every day.You have to decide, do you want, money, time, satisfaction, etc.
A job isn't going to turn into something wonderful, if you didn't think it was something wonderful walking in the door.
I don't want you to think like me. I just want you to think.

hug I understand you 100% on the degree thing. I'm currently in the field of finance/accounting, and while its okay, the money is decent, it doesn't really fulfill me. One of my strengths is rebuilding a person's resume into a marketable candidate for a job. I'm also good at coaching people and preparing them for interviews. Not to toot my own horn, i've been quite successful at it too. I've helped two of my friends get jobs, and now my boyfriend is on the coattails of obtaining a job earning more money in his profession than he was when we met a few months ago. I get great satisfaction from it because i'm helping people directly, and I enjoy getting those exciting phone calls saying "I got the interview!!!", or "I got a call for a 2nd interview!!!", or "I don't know where the confidence came from, but I know I did a great job and have no doubts that I interviewed well!", and most of all "I got the job!!!". And when I help revamp resumes and help people with their interviewing skills, I don't even feel like "it's a job", even though i'm not getting paid for my services (as of yet wink ), its fun to me and its fulfilling. The more people I can help, I can make a portfolio out of it (using people's before and after resumes) and eventually start charging low fees, building my way to my own business...which is what I eventually want for myself. I don't see myself working for corporate america the rest of my life. I'm saving my earnings now for capital in order to start up my own business.

Sorry to ramble, but as you can see, the opportunities are endless. But you must motivate yourself to pull yourself out of the "unfulfilling" phase. Its hard, I know that for myself, but all you need is a little faith. Whether this new direction you have for yourself is to start a new business or to go into a new career change, you can do some volunteer work, or do an internship. It'll look great on your resume and attractable to other employers.

You'll be fine hug
