The perfect position will feel right to you

Money – we all want it and we all need it! This is sometimes the main objective when you look for new employment. Don’t allow money to be your main consideration when seeking a new position.

Looking for employment can be your choice and sometimes out of your realm of control. If it is out of your control, due to circumstances such as layoffs, don’t be nervous and definitely do not feel insecure about yourself.

Write down what you want – your goals in other words. This will help in preventing you from making a bad decision. Job hunting is very stressful and when emotions are involved we tend to jump too fast and think later.

Before moving forward stop, think and make sure you “feel” the job. Feel the job? If it doesn’t feel right, it is most likely not the best position for you.

    • Okay, the salary is magnificent….proceed.
    • The location is someplace you ‘may enjoy’…..slow down. May enjoy? You may like the mountains, snow, skiing and the lodge surroundings, but you love the beach, sand and warmer temperatures.
    • Stop – think about it – you loved the job because of the money, not so much the location and that “feeling” is just not there when you think about it again.

Don’t let money or even a title influence you when it comes to your future. Will this amount of money and this title erase any other steps on your stairway to success? Sometimes a lateral move may lead you to the escalator or elevator needed to lift you to your happiness and prosperity.

If you are seeking a new job, cover all your bases. If there are doubts, then don’t swing for the fence, take the bases nice and slow. Check out all your prospects before proceeding.

Do not be afraid to ask questions. Ask about the position – make sure you know what is expected of you. Speak to some of your future co-workers about their experiences. Ask about the company, both financially and their standing in the community, and if they hesitate about answering you then step back. This could be a red flag for you.

Also ask yourself if the position fits your needs. Is there room for improvement and expansion for your skills and experiences? Find out as much as you can about this opportunity and see how it fits your “feelings” for the future.

Do not be pushed to make a quick decision. Slow and steady wins the race and a great “feeling” of accomplishment will follow.

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable
    price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time
    deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic
    but I had to ask!

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe
    guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot
    of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
