Today's Question: Does Your Job Make You Happy?

Or are you just happy to have a job? Especially when you think about the 70,000+ Americans that have lost jobs in the past 48 hours. I am fortunate to both have a job and have one that makes me happy. I've been at SBC Advertising for two years. It's a great place to work with great people. As a member of the Public Relations department at this full-service agency located in Columbus, Ohio, I have the coveted opportunity to work with national brands every day!

And, every day I learn something new--and that's extremely important to me, because when you stop learning, what's left? It never ceases to amaze me when and where I learn new things--reading online articles, during meetings or even in the employee cafe. You just need an open mind and open ears!

So, what about your job make you happy?


  1. what makes me happy about my job is that i learn something new almost daily. although, i must admit that there is a part of me (right now) that is just happy to HAVE a job. it's hard not to let all this media coverage about the economy influence your thoughts on the matter.

  2. I am happy to have a job... I suppose. Not much about it makes me happy because it is just that, a job, not a career. It is not what I want to do but it (barely) pays the bills.

    This economy has caused me to pull back on taking the risk and going after the career I want.

  3. That's a great point about the difference about a career and a job. Unfortunately, in times like this, jobs might be more available.
