Jobs and employers can be one of those things in life where people only tend to talk about the downsides. They complain about the jobs that wear them down, the bosses who treat them like cogs instead of human beings, and the hours and duties that break their backs in exchange for a pittance in their bank account.
It’s important, I think, for people to also talk about the things they love about their jobs, so that people know it’s possible and even important to expect some sort of satisfaction at work.
If you’re wondering what great jobs are out there and why people love them, these 16 people’s tweets might open your eyes.
