Seven signs you’ve got the perfect job
Throughout your career, you are bound to get through a few different jobs to finally land the one that seems perfect for you. If you think dream jobs don’t exist, they do! After several jobs making you dread the 9-5 work routine, you may have finally landed the job that makes you want to stay on forever. Here are some of the most common, quite evident signs that you may have just landed the perfect job.
Your salary matches your job description, experience, and skillset
If you’ve had jobs that don’t recognize your true worth and underpay or overwork you, a well-paying job is just the first step to being that dream job. If your current job has fair compensation for the work you are supposed to do and takes into account your industry experience and skillset, then you know you’ve struck gold.
There’s a great work-life balance with this job
If your current job encourages you to do your best at work and enables you to focus on your personal relationships, social life, and mental health, that’s a surefire way to tell it is a great workplace. A job that allows you to take a sufficient breather between work and allows you to enjoy your personal life guilt-free is just what you need to keep going.
You no longer have Saturday/Sunday morning blues
You know that feeling where you just dread going back to work at the end of a nice weekend? Well, a perfect job won’t just feel like that anymore. If you feel energised after a relaxing weekend and feel ready to take on the adventures of work on the first day of the week, it is likely that you enjoy the job more than you imagined.
You are excited about work and take more initiatives
While it is quite natural to just want to do what the job asks you to do, it is a green tick if you aspire to do more work, initiate new ideas, or take on challenging projects at the workplace. This is a sign that your job makes work exciting challenges you and gives you the creative and professional satisfaction you need to be truly fulfilling.
You look up to leaders at your workplace
Nobody likes working under a bad leader and will begin to hate work when placed under a boss/manager/leader who doesn’t make you feel like a part of the team. If your boss or the leadership above you feels less like a boss and more like a mentor with whom you would love to learn things and share growth, that means it is a job you will thoroughly enjoy.
Office environment and co-workers are friendly and supportive
It is a fact that work culture and office environment contribute to an employee’s well-being and willingness to work. Since you spend so many significant hours of the work week at the office, an environment that is friendly and supportive goes a great way in making you feel secure. When you have colleagues who are fun to work with, friendly, respectful and supportive, it makes you want to be a part of the team and excel at your role. If you have an office like this, it is certainly one of the best parts of your job.
Your work is validated and appreciated
Although you are fairly compensated for the work you do at your job, it is always a good thing to be appreciated. Especially if you are attentive, supportive of the team, and like going the extra mile, a little appreciation goes a long way in making you feel that your contributions matter. If the people and leaders at your job tell you that you are doing a good job and your contributions are valued, it is the perfect job to keep you motivated and interested.
While the perfect job is a rare opportunity in your career, it is possible to find such a workplace. If your job ticks off most or all the above signs, then congratulations! You’ve found the perfect job that keeps you motivated and encourages you to excel at it. Not only will this provide you the professional and personal growth for your career, but also give you memories for life!
