Unexpected Ways The Right Job Can Make Your Life Better

Am I in the right job? This is a question that all of us have asked ourselves at one time or another. And it’s important for many reasons to know just how good the fit is with ourselves and our jobs. Click below for a quick self-survey that can be very helpful to get some clarity.

Score each of these items from 1-10, where 10 is the best possible:

  • Interesting work
  • Chance for advancement
  • Fit with strengths
  • Compensation
  • Fit with education
  • Fit with skills
  • Future of the industry sector
  • Strength of the organization
  • Your fit with organization’s vision
  • ‘Gut level feel’ for the job
  • Fit with personality
  • Fit with personal values

The maximum score here is 120. If you score less than 60 total, you may want to look further into what that means for you. Focus on the lowest score areas and ask yourself if you can change any of these.

If you’ve had another job in the past, rank that one using the same items. What was your overall sense of satisfaction with that job? What’s present or missing now?

Please contact me with any thoughts, questions or ideas that you have about this survey, or your job fit.
