Pre-employment Testing & Assessment Evaluation Questions

What is difference between perfect and boring job?

Finding your perfect job means taking control of your construction career. That means being aware of what you’re creating. When you’re aware, you can discover why you feel that way and what steps you want to take to eliminate it. In addition to that, you avoid actualizing those “next job" fears. But if you hate your job, ignore the signs, and stuff everything, all you’re creating is sudden unemployment and a lousy next job. A Gallup poll found that 77% of Americans hate their jobs. To me, that’s not a surprising discovery because most people, before they begin their job hunt, don’t do the examination to learn what their perfect job is. And after a few years -- or sooner – disillusion and distaste set in. This, combined with fear of change, creates what they wanted: to be out of that lousy place. In other words, if you don’t tune in, you’ll tune out, and then you’ll be gone.
