Journal Article — Finding My Work Utopia: Examining My Work Experiences and Position in Society — by Laura Zuzevich
As I prepare to search for a job after graduation, there are many factors that I must consider in order to understand exactly what I am looking for in a job. I am unsure at this time as to what type of job I am looking for. However, I do realize that I can draw on my past paid and unpaid work and labor experiences to recognize what characteristics I find desirable and undesirable in a job or work environment. Furthermore, through examining my position in society in relation to my social class, gender, and race, I will be able to understand what advantages or obstacles I may face in finding and maintaining a job in relation to others. Through examining these factors in this paper I hope to reach a greater understanding of what I am searching for.
