There are jobs that are exciting. Jobs that are fun. Jobs that when you wake up, you feel ready to go for the day.
Then you get "safe jobs". Jobs that are just that a job. They are easy that don't mentally challenge you where your skills aren't used.
I found myself in this situation, which made the job search quite difficult cause the job I did wasn't on par with the rest of the industry.
But I have found a place for myself now. Good luck if you are busy job hunting!
