People who search for self fulfillment at their jobs are looking for ways in which they can impact their community in a positive way. They think about what services that they should provide to consumers that would create value for a person at the individual level. This criterion has a strong correlation on the career choices that they would make as their job. One idea is to find a job which will let you get paid for providing good deeds for people. Most conventional jobs do not equate philanthropy with their position.

There are jobs that pay you to run errands to help alleviate the burden that customers have in performing their daily chores. There are some customers who may not be physically capable in performing their errands and have no choice in turning to anyone for help. This is where you can fill a need by providing errands to people. There are several companies that you can search on the internet which provides grocery delivery service for example in helping people that do not have the capability to go to the grocery store and pick up food for themselves.

Another great career option for people who enjoy helping others is to join the health care field. The health care field is about providing care and solution to conditions which affect the health of human beings. When you think of the mental and the physical make up of humans dealing with adverse conditions then the need for them to rely on people who provide this service is invaluable. A good way to learn about which positions would be right for you in the health care field is to volunteer. Volunteering for a health care organization is a great way to learn from others and gain the experience to help you identify career paths which you may be interested in. A career in helping people is fun, rewarding, and beneficial to all of society.
