Finding a Job You Love

At various stages in their career, many lawyers start to experience "burnout." Some find they simply don't enjoy the work they do on a day-to-day basis either because it is repetitive and tedious, or because it doesn't match their values, interests, or talents.  Others are fed up with the long hours and lack of work/life balance, or the cut-throat, adversarial work environment.

If any of the above describe how you are feeling about your career, you'll want to read an article recently posted on About.com entitled Career Exploration Steps to Find Work You Love. It guides readers through a series of steps to help them find a more satisfying and fulfilling career path.

These steps include:

  • Reading career books and taking the exercises described in them (includes link to recommended career books)
  • Taking a career assessment to identify strengths and to determine interests (includes links to recommended career assessments)
  • Talking to a career counselor
  • Developing a detailed career plan that spells out where you want to go and the steps you need to take to get there
