Research shows that people consider a job to be a good one when it not only pays fairly and allows a worker to do what they’re good at but also makes them feel seen for being their best self. If you have a good job, you sense that your colleagues have your back; you don’t experience discrimination; you feel your position is secure; and you have confidence that you’ll get help navigating constant changes in the working world. Gender and race can affect whether you have these feelings, as does whether you’re on a team and how you experience stress.
