How to Choose The Right Job

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT JOB A lot of people look at a job and a career as the same thing, but they aren't. A job is usually where you work, such as “I work at Google," whereas a career is your profession such as "I am an engineerÂ." Chances are, you will not have your ideal job right away because you are probably looking for a job that will bring tons of money, happiness, and power. If you are one of those people who is looking for a successful career, here is what you should be looking for in your first few jobs: COMPANY SIZE JOB TITLE Think of it as a networking opportunity because the more people you get to know on a personal level, the better chances you have for success in the future. If you decide to work for a large company at first one of the easiest ways you can network is to get to know one new person a day. Instead of taking a job based on pay, you should think about taking a job based on your title. In the future you are more likely to get better jobs if you are an engineer and had a management position compared to if you were just an engineer. FLEXIBILITY OPPORTUNITIES Your potential isn't unlimited, it is actually limited by your job. The last thing you want to do is take a job that will hinder your future and limit your options. some companies only allow you to work on specific things while others like Google let you do whatever you want 20% of the time. If you can find a firm that is flexible enough to take in your creativity and let you do whatever you want 20% of the time it can tremendously help your career. PEOPLE ENVIRONMENT If you surround yourself with successful entrepreneurs then hopefully one day you will be a successful entrepreneur. It is easier said then done to surround yourself with great people, so make sure you get a job that is filled with tons of smart and talented individuals. Working in a fun and entertaining environment will probably make you more productive compared to working in a dull environment. This may not make sense, but you are more likely to work harder and longer when you are having fun. MANAGEMENT It is important to work for someone who is fun, encouraging, and most importantly still gets the job done. There will be times when you need something from upper management.
