Back in the day, people did not expect a lot from their job in terms of happiness. A job wasn't about personal fulfillment for the vast majority. It was simply a place that you showed up, put in 40 hours a week, and received benefits, a paycheck adequate to buy a home and support a family of four on it alone, and above all, job security for life.
Of course, these days you don't get benefits, your paycheck barely covers rent for a single person, much less a family of four, and the company you work for probably has almost no loyalty toward you. Thus, it's only reasonable to ask for something in lieu of all these losses, and for many people these days, that thing is happiness.
We don't just mean fun here; happiness can take many forms. Some people find purpose in doing meaningful work. Others find contentment in doing creatively stimulating work. Still, others extract delight from a job that is extremely lucrative, whether or not it holds any higher purpose or involves being around people they might not find the most delightful.
The best way to find a job in which you can be happy is to pick the right industry. Take this quiz to help you out!
