It can take a while to find a job you love. When you’re just starting out in your career, you might move around companies or jobs for a bit until you find one that you never feel bored or stuck at.
It’s natural to look for another job when you’re unhappy at a company or in a position at work–but do you ever stop looking for something better? Consider the following signs that you have found the right job or company for you.
You genuinely love going to work
Sure, every day isn’t perfect, but if you genuinely get excited about your job and going to work every day, you’re working for the right people. If you never have a “case of the Mondays” because your work keeps you excited and challenged, stay where you are because dreading going to work can be a tell-tale sign of being in the wrong work environment.
Your values align with your company
It’s incredibly difficult to work for someone or a cause you don’t believe in. If you and your company share common core values, it makes work more enjoyable and you feel satisfied with your accomplishments because you believe in the big picture. When that’s missing, it can be hard to want to stick around or move forward in the company, so knowing your beliefs match those of your employer is a positive sign you’re at the right workplace.
You’re able to face the challenges
No job or company can be totally perfect as there will likely always be something or someone that makes your job difficult. But if you’re willing and able to learn from challenges and roadblocks that come your way at work, the chances are you will be able to thrive at the company. If you can see the future of the company beyond its hardships, you’ve got yourself a long-term career.
