and have lifetime job satisfaction.
If you score 4 yes answers your score is a B. You are pretty satisfied and fulfilled short term, and can probably hack it for a lifetime. You may hit a satisfaction plateau over time
If you are scoring 3 yes answers, your score is a C. We need to talk. You are underemployed and working in a lackluster career path, and due to transition to a career you love. With a little effort, you can ferret out the remaining two factors that will bring you prosperity, job satisfaction and a fulfilled potential.
If you scored only 2 yes answers, your score is a D. You are most likely underemployed and will be facing burnout or job loss over time. You need to do a deep dive to unlock your Career Destiny. You need to self-assess the factors that will bring you job fulfillment, remove stress and pay you what you are worth.
If you are scoring only 1 yes, your career is absolutely failing you. You truly need to make a career change. You have a dire emergency situation you need to turn around as soon as possible.

You now have a roadmap to the best jobs for your career change
Knowing exactly which of these 5 factors are not being satisfied, you now have sort of a roadmap to the best job for your career change.
A majority of today’s workers score in the 3 range, just treading water and paying the bills. Yet, they feel a career change is too difficult and stay stuck where they are:
- They have bills and responsibilities and fear a career change is too risky, so they stay stuck and miserable
- They may think they don’t have the education to make a career change
- They may not have the experience to make a change
Without career clarity of what career is right for you, this could be you as well.
Now that you know what your score is, and which career satisfaction factors falls short, you can focus on identifying the solution to those factors you have a “blind spot” in. For example if you don’t like the crew you are working with all day, you can research industries or companies where your peer work community aligns with your values.
You now have an opportunity to turn it all around and develop a career path you can thrive in.
You already possess all the valuable skills, talent and aptitude you need. You only need to define your Career Destiny so you can leverage your skills into the best career change possible.
