Love is in the air. And in a lot of ways, job searching is almost like dating. You put yourself out there and it has to be at the right time. Then, it’s you like them. They like you. You interview. Repeat. That’s the cycle until you find your match. But once you do, it just might be everything you’ve been looking for.
Check out these seven signs that you’re totally in love with your job!
1) It’s the first thing you think about in the morning…
You’re one of the few people who actually doesn’t resent your alarm clock because you know it’s almost time to work. On most days you wake up before the alarm goes off, ready to tell your coworkers about your awesome dream where you came up with an improved way to get customers in the door.
2)…and the last thing you think about at night.
It’s always hard to sleep at night when all you want to do is get back into the office. But, you are also anxious to snooze because it means you are that much closer to going back into work.
3) You consider all your customers to be your Valentine, and wish you could give every one of them a gigantic teddy bear.
As an added bonus, your love for them shows and they are constantly telling your employer just how awesome you are.
4) You’re pretty sure your friends are jealous about how much you enjoy your job.
If there’s one thing you love to do (other than working), it’s talk about working. And everyone knows it. But, your enthusiasm and passion is so contagious that no one can get too annoyed with you.
5) You’ve never thought about even looking to see what else is out there.
Sure, other employers have made a move to get you on their team, but you’ve never given it a second thought. You know how good you have it and like your mom always told you, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
6) You can’t imagine life without your coworkers
Boyfriends/girlfriends come and go, but there’s nothing quite like that bond between coworkers…and your coworkers know how much you appreciate them. Your lemon bars are pretty legendary in the break room.
7) Nothing makes your day more than your boss telling you what a great job you’ve been doing.
Whether it’s a high-five, an employee of the month award or an awkward fist-bump, when you’re passionate about your job, your boss definitely takes notice. Just by loving your job you’ve impressed everyone with your work. There’s even a rumor going around that you will soon get your own parking-spot as they’ve ran out of accolades to give you.
Work never quite feels like work if you’re loving what you do, not to mention you’ll do a better job.
