    Misunderstanding about " how do you find your job?"

    My friend recently ask " how do you find your job?" to me, and the I replied "from a recruitment website". then he was like " nah I mean what do you think about your job.

    So, here is the question. Is " How do you find your job? "equal to what do some one think about his or her job, like the job nature, the environment ?

    On the other hand if I intend to ask how did you find the job? like did anyone recommend the job to you or you found it from somewhere else, What would that question be?

    Thanks

    Yes

    How did you find/discover/hear about your job?

    Do not leave a space after opening quotation marks.
    "He was like" is a very informal way of saying, "He said". Avoid it except in informal speech and very informal writing.
