Title pretty much says it all.
If you are happy, what about your job makes you happy? Do you like your career FIELD but not your current position? vice versa? I’m curious how many people would actually say they are happy with their current job.
Please explain if you vote! =)

I love my career field, and I love my job most of the time. I am a graphic designer and right now a lot of my job deals more with online marketing – keeping websites updated as well as social sites. I absolutly love designing, just don’t get to do a lot of it right now, other than freelance jobs on the side. I work for a construction equipment sales company – so what I don’t like about my job is that we are super slow right now. Being bored at work is no fun!

I’m working at my husband’s family business. I love the company (7 people, 6 of which are family), the job is easy and pays well, but the industry is not remotely interesting to me (industrial supply – my degree is in geology)
My last job I enjoyed my company very much (fantastic benefits, catered lunches every Wednesday, large bonuses every 2 months… oil companies are rolling in money) but the job was very demanding and I constantly felt stretched to the limits of my intelligence. They don’t even look at your resume if you didn’t graduate college with above a 3.4 GPA at a state school or 3.5 at other schools. So I was surrounded by very intelligent people with tons more experience than myself. Add to that that I was living an hours travel away (through train, which wasn’t so bad) but it just turned into very long, draining days. The family business is about a 5 minute drive, which I carpool with my husband to, woohoo!

I love my job, and I love my field! I graduated a little over two years ago in a different field, but I am in the non-profit world now. My work involves events and a lot of relationship building, and fundraising. I did a fundraising job while I was in college that led me in this direction instead of my major. My job is great and I get to meet and work with amazing, dedicated, and wonderful people. The events are fantastic, even if it can get a bit stressful throughout the year, and I love feeling like I can help make a difference every single day.

For the first time in my life I can say yes! I work for a company that looks after us so well, and in a team that is really close and has such a laugh (but also succeeds and always hits our targets!)
I work in travel marketing, and absolutely love it, although it does just make me want to go on holiday all the time!

@soontobemrsm11: its funny you posted this, bc I just posted yesterday about how I love my job so much that I don’t want to finish school. I love my job and I love the career I am.
I work for a property management company in Manhattan and I work in the accounting department.
my DH wants me to finish school though but I am just not motivated to finish bc I am comfortable where I am now in my job.

I’m really interested in the field I work in (working with court-involved kids), but it’s not what I want to do permanently. I am in the midst of applying to grad school to become a teacher. I love my current job, though, and will definitely miss it when I leave!

@soontobemrsm11: I love my current job (well as much as anyone can love going to work, lol). I’m a teacher and I work at a private school – although we get paid less, it’s a lot less pressure than public schools and we usually have better students. I enjoy going to work (waking up in the morning sucks though). I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

I’m in the ‘Other’ category. I used to LOVE LOVE LOVE my job – but I’m in transition right now, it’s been very stressful and I’m worried that our next project might not be as amazing as the last. Trying to stay positive.
I love many things about my job and the lifestyle it has given me, but currently… the situation is sucky. I’m glad it’s ending soon!
I’m with ya… I’m in consulting and cannot wait for this contract to come to an end… it was great for many years (multi-year project) and now it’s completely changed and almost over!

I loved it but now that management has changed, I absolutely hate it.

My job is okay, but I would rather be in a field where I had more interaction with people. But my job pays extremely well so thats what has kept me here.

I like what I do, I just don’t like the conditions I do it in. I am a one person lab which is a lot of work and responsibility. I have no back-up when I get sick and I spend all day every day alone. In my last lab our funding was more stable, I had some awesome co-workers and I absolutely loved that job.

I love my job and my field. My job makes me happy because I counsel individuals on their career goals and then together (the client and I) make a plan for employment.

I like my job well enough. I really like my co-workers. I wouldn’t say I love it, but it’s good enough.
