It’s been drilled into us from the moment we stepped foot outside of high school, but what are the real advantages of discovering a career you love?
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
Beginning the search for a career can be one of the toughest steps a person can take. Not only does it force you to consider how you want to spend the majority of your life, it also calls for some deep introspection and self-evaluation of your passions and abilities. Although there’s always room to change course, a clear vision of the future can enable us to make huge decisions with confidence.
Gone are the days when we would walk blindly down a career path. Today, we can research every facet of a potential career. Does the job pay as much as you’d hoped? Is it a career you can see yourself enjoying for the rest of your life? We can answer these questions and so many more, so that we can enter a career path with confidence and enthusiasm.
Understanding the chronological steps of your career path will aid you in building experience to eventually climb the ranks through your occupation of choice.
What you get from a job you love
Motivation. If you love what you do, not only does motivation come easy, you also become a beacon of inspiration for others.
Continued learning. When you thoroughly enjoy your work, you're constantly on the lookout for ways to improve. This includes ongoing learning and improvement that you actually enjoy.
Better quality of life. When work doesn't feel like a chore, you're more likely to pursue challenges outside of work.
Leadership. Having a passion for what you do makes you an ideal candidate for a leadership position. This is why we see so many young, upstart CEOs with a hunger for success.
Knowing your niche. When you know your area of expertise back-to-front, you push yourself to tackle new and exciting industry challenges.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
