Key Factors In Determining If A New Job Suits You in 2019

What kind of benefits will come with this job?
Does the job you are considering have health benefits or paid vacation? If this is something that's important to you, you need to make sure you consider this before saying yes to a potential job. Other benefits can also include

  • Flexible work scheduling
  • Training opportunities
  • Retirement plans
  • Short-term disability, etc.

Are there any opportunities for career advancement with this new company?
If you are the type of person who likes to "climb the ladder" and that's how you stay motivated, then you need to work for a company that has opportunities for career advancement. Being stuck in the same position for years on end will most likely make you miserable.

What type of salary will you make at this new job?
Pay and benefits for a job are obviously an important consideration. Take the following into account:

  • Make a budget of what you currently spend and compare this to what the job is offering. 
  • Don’t forget that taxes will take a chunk of your pay, so factor this in as well. 
  • If you take a job that can’t support your current lifestyle, this may cause a problem for you and your family.

What will be expected of you at this new job?
If the duties of the job don't challenge you, you most likely will get bored quickly and lose your motivation. No job is worth doing if you are unhappy doing it. Analyze each job description to ensure it fits your skills. The job description is your roadmap to what you can expect if hired, and you need to make sure it’s a good fit for your aspirations.

What would your new work family be like?
Most people end up seeing their co-workers and their boss more then they see their family members. It's important that you are able to get along with them. If their personalities don't jive well with yours, then it may not be a good match. During any interview, ask about the culture of the company, and try to talk with current employees to see how they like their jobs.
