I Have a Passion for NOTHING

Dear Experts, I've taken all the tests and can't find a single job I'm excited about. I can't imagine a job I would find interesting and no amount of money will drive me to do work that I hate. How does one turn around their complete distaste for work? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#367 There is SOMETHING out there for you. What do you like to do in free time? That says a lot. (@beneubanks) Q#367 You sound like a classic "work to live" type. The trick is finding a job you may not love, but don't hate. (@gradversity) Q#367 You've got flawed expectations. Careers are like good spouses: May not like everyday BUT still love them. (@jtodonnell) Q#367 Try going hungry for a while. It can turn around your "complete distaste for work" pretty fast. (@ResumeStrategy) Q#367 U need to contribute as productive member of society. Hate is strong word. Tests won't tell what u like. Venture out. (@DebraWheatman) Q#367 Gr8 question! U CAN & WILL find work u love by IDing/talkg abt what u love 2 do, r proud of now/in past. (@juliaerickson) Q#367 Living indoors and eating regularly always motivated me to work. Even a "perfect" job is not perfect. Try diffrnt things. (@DawnBugni) Q#367 Do u have a passion for anything in life? Hobbies? If not: could u be depressed? Have u worked before and hated it?

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
