What is THE MOST IMPORTANT to you as far as jobs/careers go? Security? Money? Prestige? Growth Opportunities? Stimulation? All of the Above? None of the Above? Some of the Above?
As long as i have enough money to pay my way and have a little over at the end of it i don't really care what i do, i shall always work to live and never shall i live to work.
Retired now, but I did eventually learn that money isn't everything. With about 1/4 of your life spent on the job, you'd better like the job.
That includes stimulation (high priority for me) and a liking for the job environment, including coworkers. Money, given that it is enough to live comfortably on, is a distant third and prestige means not a thing.

She looks in better shape than the boomers working alongside her. The article explained she enjoys what she does and is good at it. She tried office jobs, but hated being cooped up. She gets her hair and nails done every thursday.
Spending so much time working every week, I look for three things in my job: 1) help financial stability (of course the basic needs are the most important) 2) be able to enjoy what I do 3) create opportunities for creativity and personal growth (otherwise I get bored...)
