From job descriptions to company stories, there are different reasons job seekers are compelled to apply for a position. For some, the promise of a competitive salary is enticing, while others are more attracted to a great office environment.
As professionals, we spend roughly a third of our days at work. With all of that time spent alongside our co-workers, you would think that most people love their jobs. Yet, unhappy employees outnumber happy employees by two-to-one, worldwide. There are some things we can do to change this! It starts by establishing what makes us satisfied in our careers.
It’s essential that our jobs:
- Are a place where we are excited to work
- Challenge us to develop our skills
- Enable us to grow as professionals
We want to know what drives you to search for and apply to a new position! Take a look at these three questions and tell us what suits you best. Your feedback is appreciated!
