Interests

​​Identifying Your Work Interests

The work that satisfies you will be the work where you are interested, motivated, and achieve your best results. One way to identify this is to look at your interests and how they fit various types of work. 

Jobs can be a combination of interests, for example a job such as sports coach or outdoor recreation instructor combines two types of work - helping and advising and nature and recreation.
