And they are right! Finding a job you love – getting paid to do something you love – is not easy, but it is a worthwhile pursuit, and that is why we post “I Love My Job” interviews on TheCampusCareerCoach.com, along with other information like Six Lessons You Can Learn from Reality TV About Doing What You Love.
We conduct “I Love My Job” interviews with people in every variety of professions who simply love what they do for a living. Our goal is to understand why these jobs are so intoxicating to these people and help job seekers understand how they too can learn how to find a job they will love.
Do you love your job or know someone who does? Would you like to be interviewed and featured on this blog? Send me an email, and we can see what we might be able coordinate.
