If you are on a career counseling site, you likely are not experiencing joy at work. Our . mission at Career Counseling Connecticut is to help our fellow Connecticut neighbors experience joyful careers.

The first step is to recognize that “joy” from work is possible.

I’m sure that may sound crazy for those of you with bad bosses, mismatched jobs, and companies battling to stay afloat. But there must be something in your life – like the work it takes to find the right present for someone that you love – that illustrates that work can be joyful.

Take that recognition and seek to find a career that brings similar happiness.  It is possible.
