Ready to start looking for new jobs? Before immediately jumping to applications and interviews, asking yourself a few questions will allow you to better strategize and tailor your job search specifically around your desires for new employment. Here are three questions to ask yourself as you embark on your job hunt:
What are my goals?
Before seeking any new position, it’s important to consider your goals for your next opportunity. If you’re like many people, you’ve likely left (or are leaving) a job due to some form of dissatisfaction. Identifying what you want out of a job moving forward is essential for making the best decision. For instance, are growth opportunities important to you? Do you want to be part of a more innovative corporate culture? Digging deep into your own aspirations for employment is key for any job transition.
What are my work-life balance needs?
While many employers are increasingly offering flexibility on some level, work-life balance varies among all companies and organizations. Considering your work-life balance preferences – such as needing to work from home or the option to work morning or afternoon shifts only – should be a major point of consideration when searching for new jobs. As you research employers and go on interviews, asking about work-life balance will help you get a better sense of whether the job is a fit for you both professionally and personally.
What work environment is best for me?
Workplace culture is a critical factor to think about when reviewing job options. There are many types of work environments, all with varying benefits, values, and perks. Depending on your interests and personality traits, some companies’ workplace cultures may be a better fit for you than others. From open office areas to high-tech workspaces, there are a variety of environments in which you may thrive the most.
