Having a job can be fun, if it is a job that you like doing. My brother likes working with computers, so he decided to work as a computer sales person. He loved his job as sales representative for Circuit City. I would not enjoy this job as my brother would, because I am not interested in computers. I, on the other hand, like to play with tools and fix things. I have never had a job, but I would love to work as a carpenter. Jobs have certain characteristics that make them appealing to some people, but not to others. When comparing jobs couple of characteristics to look at are the nature of work, and the working conditions.
When looking for a job, people should know the nature of work they want to do. There are some jobs where you sit or stand all day long, while others require a lot of physical activity. A salesperson assist customers in finding what they are looking for and try to interest them in buying the merchandise. My brother is a person who loves to talk and make conversation with people. Nature of a salesperson also requires patience and courtesy, especially when the work is repetitious and the customers are demanding. I am not a people person so this job would not be for me. I like to do something that doesn't involve me continuously talking to people. The nature of work for a salesperson is not for me, so that is why I rather work as a carpenter. Carpenters are involved in many different kinds of construction activity. They cut, fit, and assemble wood and other materials for the construction of buildings. Nature of work for a carpenter requires more independent work than interaction with a lot people. Carpenters fix and build things by specific plans of the contractor. Nature of work is a characteristic that should be looked at when finding a job.
Working conditions is another characteristic that is useful in finding a job that is right for you. Some working conditions include the place you work, how you work, and the time you work.
