If you are currently looking for work and are unemployed then you may wonder if it is ok to turn down jobs? If you are desperate for an income then you may decide that you have to accept any job that comes your way, but even if this is the case it doesn’t mean that you cannot continue to ook for other work in the meantime.

If you are looking for a permanent position then there may come a time when you are offered a job following an interview but have since realised that it may not be exactly what you are looking for.

When looking to apply for a new job position, not only should you consider if you have the relevant experience and qualifications but also is it a job that you would be happy doing? If you don’t feel that you would get much satisfaction out of the role then you probably shouldn’t even apply. Yes, money is often the main reason many of us go to work but that doesn’t mean to say that we cannot pick a job that we enjoy or that gives us satisfaction.

Trying to work without any job satisfaction often means we do not do the job to the best of our ability and that we dread going to work which is not good for our mental health.
