Competent Communicator Project 10- How to find a job you love

Dear fellow Toastmasters and wellcome guests,

Before I start my speech, I want to do 3 quick surveys here. If your answer is 'Yes', Please raise your hand.

Do you love your job?

Do you think that your job match to your passion?

Have you heard this career advice' fellow your passion and the money will follow?

Ok. Thank you.

Let's talk about my 3rd survey first. I believe many of your must have heard about Steven Jobs Stanford commencement. There is one point that people got really excited about: "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. "


I have to admit that when I first heard this few years ago, I was so excited while worried. Because it sounds so right yet I can't figure out what I am really passionate about. I don't know what jobs fit for me.

After graduation, I was lucky enough to find a pretty good job. The position is called career development program or management trainee. I have the opportunity to rotate in 3 different positions before get to know what I really love.

Guess what? After 3 different positions, the perfect 'right' job is still nowhere. I was so concerned about trying to find the magic perfect job match to my passion that none of my 3 assignments really counts.
