How do you actually find the the job you really wish for?
I felt that I am always working the jobs that I am happy with. Yes, I am paid pretty well for my age but I am never happy working the jobs I ever have. What should I do?
How do you find the job you actually love?
Here's one idea. Write down something you love on a sheet of paper, let's say "Animals". Next, write a list of all the possible organisations that are connected with working with animals; I can only do this from a UK perspective but here's some examples: Pet charities, pet rescue centres, guide dogs for the blind, zoos, vets, police dog unit, mounted police, stables, quarantine blocks, etc. You can probably find loads more than this.
Next start hunting these places down on the internet and see what jobs they have going. It may be that you still need to work there as, say, an administrator, but you'll be working in an environment you enjoy.
I also put lots of ideas in a hub but understand the rules of Hubpages prevent me posting a link, but the info is in my CVs/ Interview tips hub. (Hope it was OK to put that!)
You don't. It's a fairytale. Jobs aren't meant to be loved. They are meant to put money on the table. There are very very few people who actually find work they love, and it's more by luck than design - being in the right place at the right time ith the right qualifications.
This guy will tell you about everything you want to know.
Working for someone else will never be satisfying. If you want a job that you love you can not find it you have to create it. Work for yourself.
That does not mean find ways online to make money quick. There is no such thing as making money quick. If you want a good stream of income you need to plan it out, invest some time and money, and work hard.
Think outside the box. Figure out what you love and then create ways to use it to make money.
I'll admit that I've had lots of jobs that I thought were great some days and horrible other days. That said, things I thought I would hate, I actually LOVED after I did them.
Think about your hobbies, or things you enjoy doing when you're not at the job you hate over 80% of the time.. Try to think of a few things and see if there are any that you can combine. For instance, someone who likes camping and writing, can become a blogger or merchandise tester for camping stuff.
The only problem with things like that is that if you're going to do something you love to do, make sure you love it more than your salary. Starting out at the bottom of the barrel trying to do something you love doing won't guarantee a good wage (or even a decent one) so be prepared to work hard at it. You may even need to pick up something you don't like as much, on the side, to keep things going until you figure out how doing what you love can also make you money.
That's a really great question. In the past I have found that the jobs I loved paid the least, which is why I moved on from them.
I like the idea of putting it on paper and brainstorming that way. Thanks Beth for that suggestion.
The only way to assuredly find the job you love, is to figure out what you enjoy the most, and figure out how to make a business out of it.
I use to own a pet sitting business. This means visiting other people's houses while they are away, caring for their pets and sometimes doing a few small chores around the house. I'd rarely be at a house longer than an hour.
I made a considerable amount more per hour than I do at my actual job, which also pays pretty well considering I have no formal education. That sort of business takes on average 3 years before one can do it full time, but it's worth the effort.
I won't get into why I no longer have the business since it doesn't pertain to the topic - the important message here is - you just have to create the job yourself.
Now, I fully disagree with these people saying you can't love a job, or working for another. I've known many people who have done just that...and they weren't all glamorous jobs either.
As a matter of fact, one of my first jobs was a pizza delivery driver. Didn't make enough to build a nest egg by any means - and it's nothing to aspire to be. However, I really did love that job. To this day I've even thought about doing it part time because I loved it so much. I just enjoyed driving around town, listening to music, getting paid...and anticipating the amount of my next tip. Seems silly, but it's true.
That said, I can't help with *how* to find this job that you love, since it will vary from person to person. All I can say is...keep trying.

Do you believe you can work AND love what you do every day?Are you doing what you love to do or is work a dreaded task? If it is a dreaded task, why do you continue to do it? Is it possible to work and love what you do? Is fulfilling work only a reality for a select percentage of the population?

"I'm very punctual." That was my response when a woman asked me why I am a good worker during a phone interview. "Okay," she responded, "but what would your current supervisor have to say about you?" Jeez, I thought. There is nothing positive he could say, especially...
