Find a Job I Love

COMPLETED BY 72

LISTED 408

An avid environmentalist would never be happy at a company that doesn't even recycle its printer paper. And, a very ambitious person would never want to work for a business that doesn't recognize its employees for their accomplishments. Values are extremely important to finding a job you love, because if your company's values do not match up with yours, you'll never been 100 percent happy.

If you're not sure what's important to you, figure that out first. After all, defining those is the first step to finding a company that shares your values. Experts at career Web site Monster.com suggest you consider how you might rank certain intrinsic, extrinsic and lifestyle values, including some of the following:

Traveling for work Saving for retirement Room for advancement Vacation time Making a difference Prestige or social status Competition Bonuses Your commute Time for your family Do you enjoy exotic vacations? If so, you need a job with a good vacation plan that also pays well. Or, if you have a family, you probably want to search for jobs that allow you to work from home sometimes and value your work-life balance. Figure out what's important to you, and then do your research before applying for a position.
