Deciding on a move to a new job

By | Feb 23, 2007

Location
Is traveling involved? Is the job in a city and you are a rural person? Is it near home? All of these should be considered when looking at a new job. If you need to move is it to some place you would want to live.

Assignment
What kind of work will you be doing? Is it something you like? Don’t move to a job where the assignment is not something you enjoy, with hopes that you will be able to do something else later. It may never happen.

Relationships
It’s not uncommon for us to spend more time with co-workers than with our families. We need to be able to work with them. If possible meet as many of your co-workers as possible prior to making the jump. The working relationship at your current job may be better than the one you are considering.

Company Value
How is the company you are planning to join doing? Are they financially strong or in danger of going out of business? Make sure that you do this research before jumping ship, or you may find yourself out of work due to job cuts.

Work Time vs. Personal Time
Some people are perfectly happy working a 40 hour job, just so they can have the rest of the hours in the week to do what they want to do. Sometimes the statement ‘I work to live’ may be all you need.

Financial
How does the pay of the new job compare with that of the old. While sometimes you may move to a new position simply because of a great increase in pay. How does the pay relate to all of the above considerations?
