What do you want from your job? I was talking to my boyfriend a couple of days ago. If said he is not challenged at work anymore and he feels bored being a customer service agent. I told him hes acting weird because most people in their company are contented to be what they are and here he is wanting loads of jobs and work to do. If laughed at me when i told him that and well maybe he is right that we want to think and do our work better and not settle for a work that seemed to mechanical in nature. What about you? Do you think you wanted more out of your job or are you fine with the way things are?

I am contented with my job now. Although of course , a promotion in the future is very much welcome. However, it has to be not so stressing though, because i don't like to be stressed so much. We simply have to love our job in order not to get bored with it. When we are bored, it means we don't like our job anymore. So, try loving your job more.

I like my current job than the previous one. Even if other people do not get it and asked me to stay and be like others which is making other people rich- but as long as I am happy with my job I am sure that I will be fine. I hope my business will grow and success in the future. Now I am improving my skills and gain more information about it.

Every job has its risks and responsibilities. As long as we live it comfortably why should quit? But keep in mind, of what the job is we get? friends, income that is not even science we had before. Suppose you are an undergraduate engineering background, the work you are doing right now wrestle around financing. Inevitably you have to learn accounting or finance system that is associated with financially. That is the science that we can in addition to monthly income. We added more new experiences, new knowledge and new friends. Are you comfortable with a job that offers you a large salary but not conducive working atmosphere. What are you going to hold? It all depends on you. Congratulations to decide .... The best to you!

hello, i don't have work now because I am still student. But I am excited because I want to earn real money through my own blood and sweat. I wish I could. But your boyfriend might right to what he is saying that he is not happy at all, because he is getting bored. There is an instance that it is happening. It is better for him try to enjoy what he wanted for. And if he cannot take it then go look for another job. but it wasnt easy now, because unemployment is increasing. good luck
