Do you love what you do?

I have put a lot of thought into this question lately. I have to say overall the answer is yes. I love my job. I love what I do. Sometimes I think it is the coolest job in the world. For anyone wondering I work in a call center. But not just any call center. My call center happens to have the project that I work on, which to me has some of the coolest education gadgets in the world.

I know our products in and out. I love the calls and emails. Most of the people who call in are really friendly and most seem to love their jobs as well. Who wouldn’t love teaching our children! Kids bring so much joy to so many people and to support our teachers in what they are doing and provide them with tools that aid in teaching children is fun and demanding.

To me it is satisfying getting off a call with a teacher that is just trying to make everything work and has no idea what she is doing at the beginning of the call and by the end of the call she has the resources she needs to understand the technology she has in her classroom and how it can benefit her. It’s just just about providing technical support but about educating them in what can help them get their students up and interactive.

I have seen first hand how that can be beneficial in a classroom. I have a brother with special needs. I had learning disabilities myself. I know how frustrating it can be if you feel like you are being left out and are not interacting with the other students and teachers in a positive and fun way. So do I love my job? Can call centers sometimes be fun? Hell YES!

PS- If you think you might know who I work for please keep it to yourself…

  1. I think it’s extremely important to be happy with the job you have. There’ll always be days where you feel just not up to it, but in the long run, you have to be happy where you are. After all, you work to live, you don’t live to work. I’m glad you have a job you love, the only stories I ever heard about call centers are where people are being threatened with death.

    1. Sorry I did not reply sooner, I thought I had for some reason. I have heard and had some horror story’s in other call call centers and even on other projects in mine. I think I just lucked out and am on a really good project.

  2. I agree with the above, it’s extremely important to be happy with your job. I used to work in a hospital ward that was extremely dysfunctional in many ways, and I was upset and frustrated all the time. Then suddenly this summer I got a job offer I just had to take.. I’ve been interested in palliative care for years, and suddenly received an e-mail that they were looking for a nurse there, so I applied although it’s a little bit too far away to be convenient when I don’t have a driver’s license. I got the job, and the travelling works ok. I’m VERY satisfied with working there. The ward has its problems as many other hospital wards, but it’s so completely different than the other ward I used to work at, the doctors are so much better, everything is so much better, and I love that I can finally focus on a speciality that I’m really passionate about!

    1. I don’t know why but I thought I had replied to both these comments, sorry.

      I could only imagine working in a hospital ward that was dysfunctional. Working in one alone would be stressful, but I imagine rewarding in a lot of ways, being able to help people or at the very least be there to comfort them in their hours of need or last days. But being in one that was dysfunctional on top of it would be really rough.

      I am glad to here you got a job offer that was much more satisfying. I understand the convenience factor of where it is located but sometimes you have to trade certain things for others to get what you want!
