Having a job you love can enrich your life. Research shows that people who are happy at work and love what they do are more likely to be optimistic about the future, motivated to reach professional and personal goals, and report feeling generally happy with their lives.
But finding a job you love — one that you feel passionate about and is personally and professionally fulfilling — can be a challenge. Join Boys & Girls Clubs of America, their workforce readiness partners Toyota and The Coca-Cola Company, as well as Major League Baseball for a FREE virtual panel discussion to explore the pathways to career success and how to find a job you love.
