How do you know if you are in the right job? Maybe after you started, the job changed – for better or worse. Maybe you thought you would like it or be good at it, but now you aren’t sure. At one time or another we probably have all questioned if we are in the right job. But, again, how do you know?

Here are a few things to consider. Be honest in your evaluation.

  • Are you good at your job?
  • Do you enjoy it?
  • Do you look forward to work on Monday?
  • Do people respect your work?
  • Are you proud of your work?
  • Do you like the people you work with?
  • Do your co-workers like you?
  • Do you receive positive feedback?
  • Do you feel appreciated?

If you find yourself answering yes to all or most of the questions, chances are you are in a good place; your job fits you well. If you came up with mostly no’s, then it may be time to think about what kind of job could turn your answers around.
