We agree with all of the tips in the article. Specifically, when you begin exploring a change in employer you should consider what role would be a good fit for you within a new company. You need to be able to hit the ground running and contribute from the start.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Does the culture of the organization, direct manager and peers fit with my personality and work style?
- Do the career path options fit your short-term and long-term goals?
- Does the compensation fit your expectations?
We encourage our candidates to rank the importance of these points and weight them. Once you have identified the important criteria in your next career move, you may then make a more informed decision when selecting your next opportunity.
