Finding a good job and what your ideal job should look like 

What is a good job? 

A good job is one that will cover the cost of your essentials whilst also adding more value in other ways. A good job not only makes you feel good about the value you bring to an organization, but it also relates to the value that your peers recognise.

A good job consists of morale, stability, motivation, and growth.

What are the main characteristics of a good job? 

Recognition  

Recognition involves your seniors’ being aware of your efforts and rewarding you accordingly. This could be in the form of a promotion, a bonus or an increase in salary. It also involves feedback from your colleagues, who also recognise your work.

Salary  

A good job will not only cover your day-to-day expenses, but it should also leave you with disposable income for leisurely activities. Spinwell, for example, has made a pledge to always pay above the minimum wage and pay their employees the real cost of living.

Benefits

Salary aside, other benefits are always welcome. Whether this be through health insurance, payments for commuting, or even the option to work remotely,

Purpose

A good job makes you feel resourceful and gives you the sense of making a difference. This then adds to your motivation as an employee to further achieve your targets.

Job Security

Job security can help you become a more motivated employee. Knowing that you are secure in your job can help lower stress levels and increase your confidence, which in turn makes you more productive.

Growth

A good job inspires you to further advance in your career, both personally and professionally. A good job is one that challenges you and your problem-solving skills. Opportunities to further enhance your skills through training courses and workshops will help build your confidence whilst also building your CV.

How do you find a good job? 

Understanding what you have to offer 

Determine your skills, abilities, and what you can bring to the table. Once you are able to distinguish and assess your abilities, interests, and strengths, it can help you narrow down your search to understand the right fit for you.

List out your requirements  

Determine what you want from a job. If you want to work remotely a few days of the week or require additional benefits such as commuting fees or things like health insurance, be sure to take them into consideration in your job hunt.

Changing your CV

When looking for a job, adapt your CV and tailor it to the role at hand. Always read the job descriptions and use key words and phrases from them to show that you possess the necessary requirements.

Study the company  

Alongside finding a job, it is also important to make sure you do your fair share of research into the company you are thinking of working for. It is advisable to read employee reviews to find out about the work-life balance.
