“People Who Actually Like Their Jobs: What Do You Do?” (72 Tweets)

I like my job. Really, I do! I think it’s the perfect blend of working on fun topics, doing serious research, interviewing awesome people, and getting to do what I love most (that’s writing!) a third of the day. (The other two-thirds are, naturally, spent sleeping and eating.) However, the simple fact remains that far from every person likes their job. Plenty of people are gritting their teeth, trying to get to the weekend ASAP, breaking their backs for the next paycheck, secretly daydreaming about a job they’d love.

This article, however, is all about liking your job. Twitter user Mistermoviespod, aka Monsieur cinèma, the creator of ‘Mister Movies Pod Cast,’ sparked a fun and engaging discussion when he asked his followers who actually enjoy their jobs to share what they do.

Mister Movies’ thread on Twitter was wildly popular. It got over 102.5k likes in less than two days and really got people thinking about how they feel about their current jobs. Of course, no job’s perfect (personally, I don’t think there’s even such a thing), but there are plenty of things to do that give folks a lot of pleasure.

A lot of it has to do with jobs coinciding with a person’s passions in life. If you’re into nature and animals, odds are, you’re more likely to enjoy working at a zoo or as a gardener/botany specialist than someone who’s way more into architecture or astronomy. Passion drives us forward. Without it, we tend to put in far less effort. Though, to be fair, sustaining passion over a long period of time is a very difficult task.

Quite naturally, some of you Pandas might be thinking about switching jobs. Maybe you’ve had your eye on your dream job for a while now but never had the guts to actually apply. Or maybe you’ve been sending out job applications for months and months without much success. Either way, one thing we can probably agree on is that applying for a job and going to interviews can be super stressful, even if you’re super qualified.

Career coach Jermaine Murray from JupiterHR previously gave Bored Panda some great insights on what to do and what to avoid doing when going to your next job interview. He stressed that the number one mistake that the people applying for a position do is being too humble and not doing enough to highlight their achievements.

“They humble themselves when they need to be boasting. If you understand why the work that you were doing was important and how it impacts your org (project) then you should be explaining that to the interviewer without holding back. How did you go above and beyond to make sure things worked? What creative ways did you come up with? Show off,” the career coach told Bored Panda.

According to Jermaine, both our body language and our tone of voice during interviews are “super important” when it comes to performing well during job interviews. He pointed out that we should “always want to be perceived as confident and capable,” and our body language should reflect that.

“If your body language or tone says otherwise, you destroy the perception of your skills. Once that’s gone so are your chances of landing the job,” career coach Jermaine warned that impressions really do matter and that we ought to do our best to appear confident (even if we’re actually really nervous).

“You can teach someone to be a better coder but it’s near impossible to teach them how to be a better person. Recruiters will always value personality first, but technical skills are a very close second,” Jermaine said what recruiters are looking for in candidates.

“Hiring managers keep that in mind and try to make sure candidates they like can perform competently. Different things contribute to this bar that aren’t based on the candidate but the organization’s internal ability to support and develop someone. Once those two elements are present, a hire will happen,” he stressed how hiring processes work.
