Factors to consider while looking for a job

For most of us, the default reason for seeking a job is the salary.

But there is much more to consider while seeking a job change.

“Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you’ll have more success than you could possibly have imagined.” — Roger Caras

Even before thinking about applying for a job opening or changing your 

career, you may need to ponder over the following options that provide 

job satisfaction and ensure happy days at work.

1. It adds Value to Life:

Think about the positive changes that the job can bring about in your life. It should also positively impact the organization and contribute to society. 

You should be able to create improvements in the job and derive 

happiness, knowing that you have made it much better than before in a way that it genuinely helps people.

2. You will enjoy working with your team:

At work, you will be interacting with people a lot. Make sure you are in a 

team where you are accepted and supported. 

It would help in making decisions if you know who you will be working 

with and whether you can get along well.

3. Trust:

It is great to know that you are not being monitored all the time and if 

you have taken the responsibility for doing a task, you have complete 

freedom to do it.

4. You will be appreciated and valued:

Appreciation goes a long way, makes you feel great, and positively encourages you to achieve more. 

It can be a simple thank-you or respect from other teams members or even 

unexpected gifts.

5. Find something you love to do:

There is a saying “Find a job that you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life”. 

Every bit of it is true!

Some enjoy working with people, others enjoy completing tasks. Some 

like making decisions, others don’t. 

Find a job that fits your personality.

Your job should not be determined by money alone. 

If you are truly motivated with your job, it will ensure that your 

happiness is followed by the pay it deserves.

6. It suits your personality:

Each one of us is unique and has a personality that thrives in a specific environment. 

7. It challenges you

A job that makes you better and hones your skills through challenging 

assignments, learning opportunities, demands excellence will pave the way for the evolution of a better you and thereby a better company.

8. Integrity We all have core values.

No matter what you do, however important it may seem or how much ever you 

maybe paid…

At the end of the day, your integrity is what matters the most.

9. Culture:

Look for a job with flexible results-oriented culture.

It should allow you to successfully complete your job with excellence 

than simply clocking in a set amount of work hours during a specified 

time of the day.

10. Family: 

You value your family. Your job should too.

Work is really fun when you love it. 

Ensure that it is not too demanding and allows you to enjoy your life outside of work too. Finally, when you look back, you should be able to smile with satisfaction knowing that the job you loved and the betterment you had created has evolved into a contribution that continues to benefit people with positivity and excellence.
