Perfect job, or does it really exist?

Having a job is considered as one of the must-have’s these days. A lot of young people start working at a very young age, gaining experience and a unique mindset of what in their opinion the best job is.

First of all, young people tend to think that the more money they earn, the better. It is reasonable enough, as it is impossible to imagine a prosperous life in the modern world without a decent amount of savings. On the other hand, money itself should not become a sole aim, as it can become a double-edged sword: seeking for a fortune, one will forget to live a life.

Secondly, youth go to great lengths to find a position which will leave them considerable amount of time. No wonder, young adults consider it absolutely essential, keeping in mind, they are usually single and would think about their social life. Those, who are already married have to have their family’s best interests at heart, and therefore cannot let the job become the only focal point in their life.

Finally, it is prudent to presume, that a job is ought to bring some (to say the least) satisfaction into one’s life. Seeing progress, working in a trustworthy, amiable and supportive team and doing what is considered important, are thought to be among the most momentous things in our life. Job satisfaction is something totally independent from just affluence and spare time.

To conclude, taking into consideration everything mentioned above, I would like to say, from my point of view, the topic itself is very relevant in this day and age. I hope adolescents will think about it, and they will find a better way in the future.

One thought on “Perfect job, or does it really exist?

    Taking all the above arguments you expressed in this post into account, I should say that I do believe that a perfect job exists, but the essence of it varies largely. As many people, as many perfect jobs! I’ve always had a deep passion for teaching English – so that’s what I ended up doing, and I’m carrying on with no doubt. Without exaggeration, I’m over the moon every time a new student expresses their trust in my teaching methods and enrols for my lessons!

    I’d say that looking for a way to turn your hobby into your full-time job is the key to success and happiness. Very often certain types of material rewards are seen as the ultimate indicator of one’s progress in a designated field – I don’t think so. Some goods and products are widely considered fashionable and get associated with a luxurious type of living – yet, even after buying a new shiny car and driving it for a couple of days, there is a risk one would feel hugely disappointed because the initial and – dare I say – ‘fake’ happiness would gradually wear off and then the person gets left with what they had been before they made a purchase – lonely, deluded, grumpy and vain.

    The paragraph about saving up for the future – affirmative! An ability to live in the moment is probably the one we obtain as we grow older, although recently more and more young people have started questioning the antihedonistic idea that new shoes should rather wait for a special occasion, and winter is the only season when you can eat your pickles! We can only live through each moment once, and taking into account the latest news on quantum physics stating that time is no more than illusion, we can definitely say that now is now, and there will never be another moment just like that, so why not take the hell out of it now and carry on with something you’re genuinely fond of?
