Head over heels in love.
You like your job, your company and your co-workers. Luckily, you've found a career that you are passionate about.
Now that you have found a job that you love, try not to get too comfortable. Always seek out new challenges and learning opportunities – keep actively participating in your career to make sure you maintain satisfaction levels.
Set higher goals. Your job utilizes your talents, and you should develop those talents more and more. Becoming highly specialized and knowledgeable will add to the value you bring to the firm, and will ensure that you are progressing.
The passion that an employee has for their job is a huge factor in the contribution they make to the company. Quality of work just goes up when employees are engaged and enjoying themselves. Even coworkers are positively influenced if you give off good vibes about the work you're doing.
Lukewarm and unsure.
Some days you rave about the exciting projects you work on and other days you can only think about quitting. The way you feel about your job fluctuates – you're not completely happy where you are, but you can't really say that you're unhappy.
Take inventory of what makes you happy about your job and what leads to bad days. Keep in mind that there are not-so-fun tasks associated with any job and seek out ways that you can do more of what you like and remedy what you don't like.
Perhaps you love getting new projects that involve research and planning. Ask for more of those. Do you hate when you feel like you have too much going on at once? Make a list and sit down with your manager to prioritize. To keep life at work interesting, seek new challenges. Volunteer to take on a new assignment. Set attainable goals that will give you something to work towards and celebrate.
Get to know your colleagues through water cooler chats and asking for their perspective on an assignment.

Ready to play the field.
The thought of going to work fills you with dread and you're quickly losing motivation. You're not happy and that's usually a telltale sign that you need a change. If you're starting each work day with the goal of merely making it to closing time, you're not maximizing your potential.
The first step in moving on is a self-assessment. What makes you happy? What is making you unhappy? What characteristics would your ideal job possess? What about your current position is not satisfying you?
Finding job satisfaction may not even entail quitting your job. Determine if there are responsibilities or projects that you would like to take on, or if there are positions open in other departments. If your current job and company fail to intrigue you, begin looking for new opportunities. Talk to people who have jobs that interest you and begin looking at what type of openings are out there.
