7 jobs for people who bore easily
While many people are perfectly content with a structured, nine-to-five job, some workers aren't made for that type of environment. They seek daily variety, new challenges at every turn and adventure in the workplace. Free spirits of the working world often have an entrepreneurial spirit and don't always want to be at a desk.
A worker who is bored on the job not only suffers himself, but his lack of focus may be detrimental to the employer, too. According to a U.K. survey of approximately 100 workers, nearly 25 per cent said they felt bored most of the time and that it hurt their job performance. Eighty per cent of workers surveyed said that being bored at work makes them lose concentration. More than 50 per cent said that chronic boredom led them to make on-the-job mistakes.
We asked job seekers and employers to share some occupations that they think are highly engaging or non-traditional occupations. While the pay for these positions varies greatly and responsibilities increase as you move up, these seven positions offer a fresh alternative for those who need more excitement in their career.
3. Hotel concierge
5. Law enforcement
6. Landscape architect
7. Food critic
While these are just some examples of less traditional jobs, the key to finding a stimulating job is determining what interests you and aligning those interests to occupations. Love to be in charge and throw parties? Look into event planning. Are you more of a gambler in life? Make a career out of it. While it's normal to get tired of your job every once in a while, if you're someone who needs constant change, don't be afraid to pursue a career that makes you excited to go to work every day.
