Considering Job Satisfaction


In an ideal world, work provides satisfaction in addition to a pay check.  If you're happy in your job, you're likely to perform better and have less immune-reducing stress. As described in more detail in the article linked to in "To Learn More," your health condition as such does not prevent you from getting a new job.

You likely already know whether your job suits you. If there's a question about your job satisfaction, or what job would be more satisfying for you, consult with a career coach. You can locate a career coach through friends or colleagues or the National Career Development Association offsite link.  Click on "Career Center", then "Need A Career Counselor?" You'll see that there are three levels of expertise and experience:

  • Fellows: a person of professional distinction within an academic institution or society. The designation recognizes substantial contributions to the field.
  • Master Career Counselor (MCC): a person who provides a full range of career services, including assessment.
  • Master Career Development Professional (MCDP): people who provide career development services and advice.

Keep in mind that career coaches may not have to be licensed so you may have to be especially diligent in choosing a person that is right for you. In particular, ask about the person's education, training in career coaching, years of experience and number of people coached. Ask for references - and call them.

You can also take a simple test such as the Work-Life Questionnaire available for free at offsite link. Click on "Work-Life Questionnaire"

NOTE: Also consider "real earnings" as compared to what you think a job pays. To learn about real earnings, click here.
