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:
- respect (I have to work for a company and a boss that respects me and whom I respect)
- challenging work
- ability for growth
- 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!!
