Do you feel a positive connection with the job? You must enjoy the work you will do. You must feel that the job has good value and is interesting. If you can identify yourself with the job then you know that the job is right for you.

Resources available


Find out whether the job provides you enough resources to cope up with the targets and deadlines. Decide whether you will be able to accomplish the company’s target or not. Find out if you will have training and other facilities to improve your knowledge and performance.



Consider what kind of compensation the company is offering you. The benefits must be attractive for you to remain in the job for a long time. Besides the tangible benefits, consider the intangible benefits as well. For example, ‘Is your company reputed?’ Or, ‘Is your position recognized?’
