In being a thriver, it seems that the environment you work in is more important than what you actually are doing, in a lot of cases. I’m not the type of person who has specific passions, my passion aligns more with being able to just enjoy life. It’s important for me to have things to look forward to and connecting with people makes me feel more alive than anything else. And I love to travel and take vacations! Beach vacations are my favorite. 🙂

I work as a graphic designer. I have done this type of work for the past 11 years, and have had many different jobs, with some being better than others. It seems to be difficult for me to find a good fit, and I feel like I am a job hopper.

With all of this being said, if I continue as a graphic designer, how do I find an environment that I am confident I will thrive in and enjoy before I commit to a job? Or are there better career suggestions for my passion profile? I don’t want to work long hours, and have been pretty fortunate in that aspect with my jobs. There is overtime occasionally, but most of the time I don’t have to deal with that, which is a relief because 40 hours a week is plenty for me. In fact, i would love to be able to work less than that.
