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.Shannon HParticipant
Hi! I’m Shannon and I am currently working through the videos in your short course. I’m really enjoying what I’m learning. I stumbled upon Clarity on Fire a few months ago when I was having some doubts about my career and just life choices I’ve made in general. I took the quiz and got the result of Thriver. I couldn’t agree more with the description. It describes me very well. So now, fast forward a few months later, I got a new job (I’m a graphic designer at a sign company) and I’m still not happy at work. I don’t feel like I work for a supportive manager and there is a huge lack of communication in my workplace. It’s really hard for me to go in to work every day. I have had lots of jobs in my search for the right fit and have felt very discouraged. And, I didn’t forget about the Clarity on Fire quiz I took a few months back, and decided to check out your course. So, now, here I am, trying to find some advice on how to go about finding the right fit for me, as a Thriver. Going through the videos so far has given me hope that maybe I won’t be miserable at work when I learn enough about myself to find the right fit.
