Being able to find a job that will make you feel satisfied and content starts with knowing exactly what you are looking for.
Do you know exactly what you are looking for as it relates to a specific job or position?
I am never opposed to hiring new team members who have been open to me about what their career goals are and how working for me will enable them to eventually obtain their goals – even if they are underqualified.
So if you are offered a job you do not want, my advice to you would be:
- If you haven’t already, make a detailed list of the job attributes you are seeking and break that list into “have to have” and “like to have” characteristics. Personally obtain clarity regarding what YOU want to do.
- Have a clear discussion with the Hiring Manager (before you accept the offer). Candidly talk about your career goals, and how open she is to supporting your progression into a promotion.
