LinkedIn surveyed over 1,000 US professionals to determine their level of job satisfaction and found some interesting results. Apparently, Charlotte has the most satisfied white collar workers with 65% of them feeling fulfilled at work.
Charlotte is followed in the most satisfied list by Boston, Indianapolis, New York City and Denver.
Chefs apparently are the most fulfilled professionals, with 84% saying so in the survey:
- Chef - 84% fulfilled
- Real Estate Agent - 75% fulfilled
- Doctor - 68% fulfilled
- IT Consultant & Support - 59% fulfilled
- Architect - 58% fulfilled
Not surprisingly, a persons salary ranks as the number one factor in job satisfaction:
- Positive relationships with colleagues
- Doing work that has a positive impact
- Work-life balance
- Feeling challenged at work
The survey also looked at age ranges and didn't find much of a difference in fulfillment between age groups. Interestingly, young people age 16 - 24 were the most fulfilled (58%). Perhaps that's because the full brunt of life and all of its bills hasn't caught up with many of those in this group just yet.
