How to find your perfect job match

You’ve seen an interesting job advert. Or you’ve just finished a call with your recruiter. And it’s got you thinking, is this the perfect job match for me…

To help you figure this out all you need to do is to write down your answers to some essential questions. It may help to approach this as you would if you were going to buy a new car*.

Why do you want to change?

Explore your main motivation for the change, e.g. you need a bigger car for your road trips

What features you’d like to keep?

What aspects do you want to make sure you’ll keep if you make this change, e.g. you love silver cars

If you had a magic wand and could alter any aspect of your current situation, what would you change?

These will be all the extras that will make the change worth it – e.g. a better sound system, air conditioning etc.

What you are likely to miss but you’ll be fine without?

These would be the potential sacrifices that you might need to make for the change, e.g. the sentimental value of the car

And now, simply check the new opportunity against your answers and you should have an understanding if it’s the perfect job match for you at this point.
