I know a lot of people looking for jobs right now and even more people looking for jobs they won’t hate.
Or, as more sophisticated people call it, “fulfilling work.”
(Personally, I’m just happy when I can prevent “work” from getting in the way of work.)
In an attempt to help one such person today I did what I always do when faced with a challenge – Google it.
Minutes later I was browsing approximately 1.5 billion videos on YouTube featuring people giving advice about how to find a job that you’ll love. In keeping with the usual YouTube batting average, the vast majority of the videos were pretty awful.
And ironically, most of the people making the “How to find a job you love” videos didn’t seem to be having all that much fun doing their own work. Then again, maybe it was just that they didn’t love professional lighting enough to incorporate any of it into their videos so the hostage-chic backdrops they were using clouded my judgment of their work happiness.
I did come across one video that was not only well-produced (and animated), but seemed to actually have some decent information in it. So, here’s a look at how to find fulfilling work – at least according to one British guy on YouTube.
