You’ve started a new job – the nerves wear off, and you’re finally settled. So, what now? It can take some time to fully feel comfortable in your new role, and you may be second-guessing if the choice you made was the right one.
Once you give it some time and thought, there should be clear signs that point to the fact that you’ve chosen the best job for you. If you’ve experienced any of these feelings, it’s safe to say you’ve made the right choice:
Your work is rewarding
If you feel rewarded on a daily basis, there’s a good chance you’ve chosen the right job. Maybe you are positively impacted by the end results of a project or you have seen first-hand the way your work makes a difference. Either way, these are clear signs that show your career is rewarding.
It is empowering to feel rewarded and know that there are greater outcomes to your work than just your weekly paycheck.
You feel comfortable being yourself
You are at ease in your own skin and around your coworkers. Once you become comfortable showing your true personality, you’ll get to know the people around you better.
Not only that, but you’ll also take initiative to offer new ideas and insights, while trusting your instincts to make decisions.
You feel empowered by your daily tasks, while going above and beyond your job description. When you get up in the morning, you’re excited to go to work and tackle another day. You have the motivation to succeed not only in your job, but in your day-to-day life as well.
You are inspired in all aspects of your role – to learn, grow, and be actively engaged. When you’re inspired, you feel a sense of purpose that you are achieving something for the greater good.
When you’re engaged in your job, you’ll be more likely to seek out opportunities for growth and development. Your growth is in your own hands – so stay inspired and learn new things each day.
You love talking about your career
When you’re proud of your work, you’ll find yourself talking about it a lot. And there’s nothing wrong with that! Not only does this show that you’ve chosen the right career, but it’s a clear sign that you’re actively engaged at work and want to share your passion with others.
Do these signs give you confirmation of your job choice, or did they leave you second guessing?
