This is the case for me as well. I could not find a correct job for me. Correct job means I should feel great and happy doing the job. At any point, I should not get bored with that particular job. I have not had anything like that ever before. I have changed many jobs in the past. Yet, I hope I will find a job which will fulfill the criteria.

Hi Ann2407, I am working in a research institute as a research assistant. I do deal with cancer samples and driving for almost 6 hours a day. Its very disgusting that i always keep on traveling in hot sun and rain for sample collection and now I got a promotion as accounts assistant. I do think this job is not suitable for me where i expect a call center job for my caliber. But I have signed a bond for three years and am not able to move out of this job for another 2 & half years. Since i am working with this i do love my job and do it. Or else i find no interest to work..

i hate to burst your bubble ,friend. You will never find a job that you would love unless you love what you are currently doing. Even how small or meager is, it is a matter of being good in what you do. You have to know what you want before you can say these things. To live a happy life is to start feeling good about yourself in spite of your daily trivialities. Be realistic , my friend. Challenges, or problems as you might want to call it, arises everytime you succeed on something. so, you have to live with it. Once does not have to struggle in achieving a dream , if you are struggling then it only means that you are going against the natural flow of life. think about it. you do not have any choice in life but to make yourself think and feel the right way.

Hi,tigerdragon,thanks for your post.You are right,to live a happy life is to start feeling good about yourself.In my mind,a job takes most of your time everday,it seems impossible for us to live easily if you hate your job,to go to work like going to a torture chamber,just as what I encounter now. 'One does not have to struggle in achieving a dream,if you are struggling then it means that you are going against the natural flow of life' tigerdragon,are you a buddhist? what you said seems the advocation of buddhist,I don't completly with what you said,life is not only flowing for me.thanks!

thanks for you topic, maybe we have a some confusion about our job, i also worked in a foreigh-funded enterprise in Shanghai, and now I also face a dilemma that if i need to change a job or change a job position, i don't want to keep my design work for my life, but i still don't know which job postion i want to hold. maybe i should take a leave and think carefully for my future, it's good that we can have national holiday a couple of days later. so wish you have a happy holiday in advance and also hope us can find our path in the future.

Right now I'm actually quite content with my job. I'm not saying that it's always a great job and that I love it every second of the day, but so far, it's where I enjoy being. I'm an assistant preschool teacher. This is what I went to school for and considering the fact that it's hard to get a job anywhere, I've got one of the best in the city and do not plan on giving it up at any time.
