Making your job more enjoyable

Posted on October 27, 2019 at 11:24 am

You will often hear people saying that job satisfaction is vital and that if you don’t enjoy your job then you should look to change your career. The truth is that most people who work have times when they feel they have little or no job satisfaction. This can be due to several reasons such as not being paid enough, having too much work on or not getting on with other colleagues.

Although it can be hard staying in a job that you do not find satisfying there are often things you can do to help improve this without having to up and leave at the first sign of trouble. Making a list of things that are leading to your lack of satisfaction is the first step to sorting out the issue. Once you have the list you need to start going through and working out how and if you can change any of them. If for example you are struggling with the work load, see if there are any ways you can speed up the tasks you are doing to save time or if you are happy to do so, could you ask for overtime and stay late one night a week to give yourself chance to catch up. If you can get paid extra for overtime this will also make it feel more worth while as well as making your day to day job easier.
