Your Work Values

Job satisfaction comes from having a job that meets your needs and fits your goals.  Match Your Work Values to Occupations (pdf) has a list of work values.  It includes things people often want or value in their job.    Not all these values will be met each day.   It is important to choose an occupation that meets most of your work values.  You're more likely to enjoy your job. You will also be more motivated to succeed.
