Motivation Monday {Career Edition}



Today’s edition of Motivation Monday is around career/work.

In case you don’t remember, I started a new job in information technology sales.  I’ve always wanted to try sales because I’m outgoing, love to solve problems and love talking to people.

What I don’t love about sales (at least now) is the prospecting/cold calling, learning all about IT, the stress, the unpredictable income.

I’m still in the newbie phase and can’t say if I love it or hate it, but I have found that I have to be passionate about what I’m doing.

Here are my career motivators:

  • passion
  • respect (I have to work for a company and a boss that respects me and whom I respect)
  • challenging work
  • ability for growth
  • money
  • work/life balance

These are my main motivators.  I don’t think your first (or second) job right after college will provide all of these motivators, but I would love to find a job/career that will combine all of these aspects!!
