What is a job for? fortune or satisfaction?? I am going to graduate from college, feeling very confused about what to do. Getting a job that is stable, or trying to earn money from some other things, two of these choices leave me with the poem , the road not taken. How about you, what is your concept about work? What do you choose between having a job/creating fortune?

I believe that the purpose of a job is to earn money, so that you can live as there are very few things in life that are free. If you are happy in your job then that is a bonus, but with prices increasing and everything, I don't think people have the luxury of choosing satisfaction over money any more. I am wanting to be an accountant, which I don't think will be an exciting job, but I think it will earn me quite a bit of money.

Thanks for your insightful response. I do agree that job's main purpose is to earn you a living and it goes much more over job satisfaction. I know that being accountant can give you a good fortune on it, Goodluck ok.

Job is there for you to make a living. To earn bucks to pay for the rent, food, and utilities. This is for maintenance. However, when you are caught between your passion and a need to earn money, make sure to think over it wisely. It's really good to have a job of which you like or if better, love. But not all people get that so later, they tend to screw up. However, things like such, I would say, is within you control. As a grown up, be more flexible and adaptive. Learn to love things you don't. Because not all things you love are good for you. And it goes the other way around too. Just my two cents.

Thanks for your response. I once heard a story, if you have a very good job, but low pay initially, your passion is gonna to work the way out and increase the earning you got from it, so I think both are pretty important. My 1 cent

both.. although probably more closer to fortune. coz satisfaction can be things ppl do outside of work.

Well, i agree that both are important. But I believe that either one of them can be more important over the other. Although you might say it depends on cases, I believe having a better concept about job can bring my more happiness.

Job is for satisfaction it is the thing which make u perfect and give you feeling of responsibility. Everyone knows that how important money is in life and without job , bussiness it is difficult to acheive so for that we have to work. But it does not mean we can do anything, we should opnly do things which we have our expertise and feel comfortable in doing them.
