The Most Fulfilling Jobs And Cities In Which To Work


Have you ever wondered which professions out there in the workforce bring along the highest levels of job satisfaction? Did you ever question which cities hold the highest numbers of content workers?

Though the results may not be definitive, we may have a better snapshot on jobs that gives us some answers to those questions, thanks to a recent report from Indeed.com, a massive job search platform based in Texas that operates on an international scale.

But focusing on the U.S., this past summer, the company, along with survey company Censuswide, surveyed more than 1,000 professionals throughout the country and asked them whether their work made them feel very or completely fulfilled. We took the results of the survey on jobs and folded them into a slideshow, which you can view below.

In the survey, respondents outlined a number of different factors that made them feel fulfilled. The most important, as one might expect, was salary, with 59% citing it as their number one motivator. The second most important factor, at 53%, was positive relationships with colleagues, followed by having a positive impact, at 50%. Other important factors were the ability to have a positive work-life balance, said 43% of respondents, and feeling challenged while on the job, said 40%.

When Indeed broke down the respondents by age, differences in levels of fulfillment were not drastically far from one another. By the numbers, 58% of those ages 16 through 24 said they were fulfilled, workers ages 25 to 34 (54%), ages 35 through 44 (47%), ages 45 through 54 (48%) and those over 55 (50%).

Indeed also zeroed in on the geography of worker contentment by discerning which cities had the highest percentage of professionals that declared themselves very or completely fulfilled.  It turns out that Charlotte, North Carolina, had the highest percentage of fulfilled workers at 65%.

In second place, on the list of cities where the highest percentage of workers feel fulfilled, was Boston, at 56%, with 15% claiming they felt completelyfulfilled. Indianapolis, Indiana, came next, also at 56%, but only 12% declaring complete fulfillment. In fourth place came New York City at 55%, and Denver, Colorado, rounded out the top 5, with 54%.
