How much you love your job depends on, “location, location, location”

If you work in the Eastern part of the U.S. chances are you don’t like your job much.
(According to the annual Monster and Brandwatch Job Report.)

Top five states where people are most likely to tweet about not feeling satisfied with their work:

  1. Michigan
  2. Virginia
  3. West Virginia
  4. New Jersey
  5. Ohio

After reading that I was curious to know where are the happy people (happy with their job, that is).

The top five states with higher job satisfaction:

  1. Idaho
  2. Montana
  3. North Dakota
  4. Vermont
  5. Utah

I’m not surprised Idaho is on the number one spot. There is a strong sense of community here. And that may be an important factor contributing to the increase in job satisfaction.

One summer years ago, I was traveling from Washington to California. Instead of the usual, shorter route, I wanted to “explore” the nearby states. That was my first encounter with Idaho and its people. I liked how friendly everyone was. So much so that I came back to Idaho that very summer. And bought a small house on a street lined with big, beautiful trees.

And it looks like Flipper and Sunny approve of Idaho too : )

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.
