Careers That Are Endlessly Challenging and Completely Rewarding at the Same Time

Are you looking for a new career? If your current job simple doesn’t give you the satisfaction and rewards that you’ve been looking for, considering a change might be a really good idea. It will give you a shot at a fresh start. But which career should you opt for when you’re considering a change? If you want something that is going to challenge you and offer you that rewarding feeling that can keep you motivated, there are some suggestions below. Each of these career options is difficult, so it won’t be easy. But they certainly will be rewarding.


Charity Work


There are few things more noble or positive than working in the nonprofit sector. You can do work every day that helps people who are in a less fortunate position that yourself. There are so many different sectors within the nonprofit industry too. And there are lots of different roles you can take up in it. Whether you want to work as a fundraiser, an advertising executive or a missionary out in the field; you will be doing positive work. The reward you get is seeing the help that is being given to some of the most in-need people out there.

Nursing is a tough profession. If you want to get involved in this career, you will have to first do lots of training. You can’t just walk in without getting the right qualifications first. But when your training has been completed and you’re on the road to success, you will see the effect your work is having first-hand. It’s often the nurses that do the small things that matter most. They care for patients, make sure that they are kept healthy during their stays in hospital and given help when they need it. If you do want to do this job, as well as the qualifications, you will need help with finding hospital scrubs.




Teaching children is one of the hardest careers you can go into. Every day will be unique, and some of those days will be unbearably stressful. But when you finally get through to a child and teach them something, it all becomes worthwhile. You have the ability to shape young people when they’re still growing and developing as people. That’s a real honour to have, and comes with great responsibility. You have to know how to handle it and what kind of approach to take. That’s something that you will learn to do as the time passes by, though.

Journalism might not have a great reputation among many people. But the work that is done can often be for the public good. When big stories are broke, they can hold the powerful to account and inform the population of important things. Of course, not all journalism are good, and neither are all journalists. But there are plenty of great ones out there, and uncovering an incredible story is always hugely rewarding. It’s something to consider if you want a challenging but rewarding kind of job.

Open Forum: The Importance Of Meetings

Love them or hate them – meetings are an absolutely crucial part of business and have been since the beginning of time. People who need to complete tasks need to meet up and talk about their duties at some point.


Forbes know a lot about business, so when they say that face to face meetings and talks are so important, we all need to listen.


‘You do business with people, not entities. The beauty of communication is found in the nuance that’s only felt in face-to-face conversations. This is especially important for women because we’re better at picking up on body language and changing emotions that can only be sensed in person. And when a whopping 93 percent of communication effectiveness is determined by non-verbal cues, talking face-to-face becomes more important than ever. After all, it’s easy to misinterpret a text or email. Especially for sensitive or otherwise important communication, having tone and body language for context makes a difference. On top of that, meetings foster greater buy-in from staff and stakeholders. A lack of in-person communication, on the other hand, means constituents miss out on the reasoning behind decisions, making them less likely to engage. What’s more, it’s easier for them to feel less accountable. When making any kind of request, the probability of getting your desired answer is greater when you have a face-to-face meeting.’


The above – from Forbes magazine – is crucial for you to take in. If you’re a business owner slinging about tasks from a phone – then your employees do stand the chance of misinterpreting your tasks. Not their fault, but because it is easy to misunderstand text as it needs context that nobody has the time to type out. There’s a lot of value in the words that come from your mouth – so find the time to talk in person.



It’s easier than ever to arrange a meeting since we all have phones connected to work servers and emails – and there is even Meeting Room Software – so you can’t really find a way not to do it. Arrange meetings around the big tasks and issues you can’t afford to be misinterpreted.


Team meetings are great for building relationships within the team and offer a space for your team to support each other. They are vital for learning more about the team and their motivations. Meetings give a space and environment for honest and critical feedback that would be unprofessional to serve through and email. It’s a time where everyone has an opportunity to communicate and listen, which can increase the value an employee feels that they have to offer the business.


That all being said – meetings should be consistent and shouldn’t happen too often without reason. You and your staff do need to work at some point and if they are dragged off to meetings, then they can’t be working! As with everything, balance is key – do not neglect the importance of meetings though!
