The other day I had a conversation with a
prospective client who was mulling over his career
options after having been laid-off from his job as
a marketing executive.
When I asked him what type of work he might like
to pursue next, his response was, "You know, I'm really
Then after pausing for a moment he added, "But I
do know one thing. I'd rather do something boring with
people I love, than an interesting job around people I
I admired his candor. And I respected his innate under-
standing of one of the most important, but often over-
looked, keys to finding work you love. When you love
the people you work with - whether they are clients,
colleagues, bosses or vendors - you will likely enjoy your
job.Conversely, if your co-workers are boring, irritating
or abrasive, then you will be equally likely to quickly
grow tired with your career. Of course other work-
related factors like salary, job-duties and industry focus
impact your happiness. But the people part of our work
matters far more than most of us realize.
So how do you find work that allows you to spend
time with people you like?
1. Clarify what you like.
I realize this sounds painfully obvious, but you'd be
amazed by the number of people who have only a vague
sense of the type of people they most appreciate at
What types of personalities do you most enjoy on the
job? Make a list that summarizes your "dream team"
characteristics and keep that list top of mind as you
network, interview and explore new options.
Keep in mind that the traits you most admire in your
friends (spontaneity, candor, a raucous sense of humor,
etc.) might be quite different from the characteristics
you would enjoy most in a co-worker.
2. Target industries with like-minded personali-
Different industries tend to attract different personality
types. Advertising favors creatives, healthcare attracts
nurturers and colleges appeal to intellectuals.
If you're not sure what types of industries are the
best fit for your personality type, consider taking the
Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) or one of the other
career assessment instruments that help you better
understand the link between your personality and career
3. Date before you marry.
Find ways to test out your compatibility with potential
clients, co-workers or colleagues, before committing
yourself to a career change: attend a conference; sign
up for a workshop; take a class; interact with people on
Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook or volunteer your services
in a new industry.
Taking the time to meet new people will help to widen
your network of potential employers and expand your
options for self-employment.
Remember, these are the people you are going to spend
a considerable amount of time with in the future. If you
