Job Action Day - Thursday, November 2, 2023

Special Interest Careers job

The first Monday in November is Job Action Day! Job Action Day,  November 2, 2020, is a day to recognize and empower those who dream of having a job they love. And we don’t mean just any job—we mean the kind of job where, as the old saying goes, you never work a day in your life. Created in 2008 by QuintCareers, Job Action Day was intended to empower and inspire hard workers who dreamed of achieving more. It’s a day to connect workers and job-seekers alike with career advice from experts in the career field. If you still dream of being excited to go to work every day, Job Action Day was created in your honor.

The words of a great man speak a truth that so few truly understand, that the value of a day’s work lies in our satisfaction of a job well done. Yes, we all need to make a living, and we should be being paid what we’re worth in those jobs and for the labor done, but no amount of money will ever take the place of finding and doing a job we’re truly satisfied with.

LiveCareer’s Job Action Day stands to remind us of this, and that there’s always hope when looking for that great job that will carry us on.

History of Job Action Day

Job Action Day was created with the purpose of encouraging job seekers to think outside the box, and to focus on getting a job that fits their ambitions, but also one that reasonably pays the bills.

There’s a common belief that people should follow their passions when looking for work, to find a job that truly brings them satisfaction and fulfillment, and not to settle for anything less.

The reality of the situation is that sometimes this doesn’t work, and great opportunities are missed out on because of a narrow, goal-oriented focus.

Instead, LiveCareer advises, take your passions and bring them to the job. Find a way to instill your love and passion for a particular career into any work you come into.

Like Martin Luther King said above, if you are called to do a particular job, do that job and do it well, such that people will say that you were one of the greats at what you did. Take Jaxen, for instance, who knew from the beginning he wanted to drive a Zamboni.

How to celebrate Job Action Day

First of all, revive your job search and start broadening your mind on what’s an acceptable position for you to take. Always let yourself look at the possibilities in a position before dismissing it as something that doesn’t fit your passions, and if you’re presently employed, focus in on the things about your job that make you love it and bring your passion to the job.

History of Job Action Day

Job Action Day was started as an annual event in 2008 by QuintCareers and continues under the sponsorship of LiveCareer, the web’s leading site for jobseekers and career changers. The event brings together career experts and bloggers to provide the most relevant advice to jobseekers and workers.

Job Action Day is a day of empowerment, regardless of your current employment situation. It’s an opportunity to examine your career and find out if you’re really doing what you love. Do you feel fulfilled? Are you passionate about what you’re doing? Are you satisfied at the end of the working day? Job Action Day encourages us to ask ourselves these questions.

It’s a time to make an action plan and look at the bigger picture. Ask yourself how important is it for you to be happy with your career? As a society, we need to make a living in order to maintain function, but no amount of money will ever take the place of doing something we truly love. As the saying goes, there’s always hope when looking for the job that’ll make everything worthwhile. Our happiness is something we should never take for granted.
