Questions to Help Find a Job You Enjoy: How is the term “career” setting us up for disappoinment?

Some people know what profession they want to work in from an early age, apply to a college geared for what they want to do, and then follow the clearly laid-out steps toward getting a job in said profession. (I don’t understand these people, but apparently, they’re out there.) Other people flounder around through the work path-selection process, taking countless free What career should I work in? personality tests and, after deeming them inadequate, pay for one more legit test, only to realize that mortician is in the top five results, and therefore life has no answers so you should major in what you like and take on five internships in three different sectors and comfort yourself by switching back and forth between the mantra, “Trust the timing in your life” and “Just make yourself qualified for as many options as possible” until you stumble upon a profession you like.

I may or may not be speaking from personal experience.

The point I want to make but am not making is this: we all end up in a career field at some point.

And generally, it’s one that we sought out, regardless of if it was something we’ve wanted since age five or since age 45. For whatever life forces propelled us in a certain direction, we thought, Hey, this job might be great for me. And then, after all of this stressful buildup, divine revelation, and ultimate relief that we figured out the answer… well, then we have the job.

I hate to break it to you, but the confetti cannons don’t keep shooting every day you show up to work (or the first day, for that matter, unless maybe you’re a clown or something). But we think they should, because dammit we’ve spent years (or, for you more impulsive people out there, days) finding this perfect career field. 

In reality, we are setting ourselves up for failure.

Our biggest problem is this: We treat the first job as a final answer, when in fact it is just another, bigger, open-ended question.

No amount of personality tests or GlassDoor descriptions can truly prepare us for a job, because they are all describing a career. Think of it like this: It’s taken a lot of time for you to decide that you want to eat oatmeal as your daily breakfast. You’ve put some thought and research into it: oatmeal is a good source of fiber; it’s inexpensive; it will help keep you full (Quaker oats, please contact me here for sponsored content opportunities). Life experiences have also led you in this direction: Cocoa Pebbles, though delicious, left you hungry an hour later; bananas didn’t mix well with your coffee; the mornings after you eat leftover Chinese food, you make an average of 4.5 trips to the bathroom before lunch, despite your adamant argument that it’s correlation and not causation. So, given all of these factors, you strategically and wisely land on oatmeal. 

But here’s the thing. When you go to a grocery store, you’ll notice there are many different oatmeal brands and flavors. Just because you decided on oatmeal doesn’t mean you’ll like Peaches ’n Cream, or Maple Brown Sugar. Maybe you’ll only like Cinnamon and Spice. Maybe you want it plain (who are you people and where did you come from).

Bottom line: there’s still a huge variety.

Despite my appreciation for extended metaphors, I’m going to stop this one here. Every job has very distinct qualities. It rests within a career, surely, but it doesn’t represent the entire career. Which is why we need to take pause at a new job (and new can mean a couple of years (she says at the ripe wise old age of 26)) and treat it as a question:

Do we enjoy what we’re doing? Does it work for us?

And then, before we freak out and have a panic attack about the uselessness of our not-so-cheap college degree pursuing this career (fun fact, for most of you, your college major barely matters), we need to narrow our scope on the job.

My friend Annie spent four years of college and two summer internships preparing to be a high school chemistry teacher. In fact, she chose her college because of her goal to be a teacher (not to mention the fact that she got a tuition reimbursement scholarship that is dependent on her teaching for five years). You can imagine her dismay when, after three years at a charter school in Boston, she realized she didn’t like what she was doing.

At that point in time, her current mood could best be described as: when a perfectly scooped ice cream sundae is knocked out of your hand after you’ve only taken one lick, and the line to get another one is astronomically longer than when you first showed up.

Sounds fun, right?

But here was Annie’s saving grace: she had a large connection of friends who also taught up and down the east coast in private schools, public schools, and boarding schools (holla at ya girl). All of these people were able to give her insight into what other jobs were like in the same career. It didn’t take long for Annie to realize that a lot of what she didn’t like at her current job had to do with the job-specific aspects, not the career aspects. 

With this realization, she decided to give teaching another try at a different school before hanging up the towel (or putting back the oats, if you will). 

I can’t tell you the end of her story, because she hasn’t changed jobs yet. But I can tell you this: Annie saved herself a lot of frantic, regret-filled life searching because of two main reasons. She allowed herself to view her job as a job, not as a representation of the entire career. She also looked at her first job through a questioning lens (as a science teacher, she’d probably want me to say inquiry lens. Sorry not sorry, I’m in humanities).

Annie might not be a teacher forever, but I’m confident she’ll be able to find something she enjoys. Finding a job you enjoy is not a random, chance act, but one in which you actively participate.

If you’re not part of the 1% who stumbles upon a job they love, you should adopt the mindset below:

  • View each job as a question that can give you more insight, not the bow-tied answer to a previous life quest.
  • Build and connect with people in the same career but different jobs. Pick their brains. Share stories. 
  • Try to figure out what you value most about a job.
  • Keep in mind that every job has its share of things you won’t love doing (Mark Manson would call these shit sandwiches).
  • Let go of the sunk cost fallacy that you’ve put so much time and energy into one profession, you must make it work. You must do no such thing. (Can you imagine forcing yourself to eat oatmeal every day if you don’t like it, just because you stockpiled ten years’ worth in your pantry?)

You should also consider the following questions to help better understand yourself and your options:

  • Do I enjoy what I do?
  • If I could change my daily tasks (aka the “career work” part) but keep certain aspects, what would they be?
  • What aspects of my job would I get rid of or change?
  • Why did I take this job in the first place? Are the original things I was looking for present?

Not only will you save yourself some society-induced stress, but you also might walk – not stumble – your way to a job you enjoy.
