Avoid choosing an opportunity or going for a job that does not suit your skill set. Your need is important but when you will have to leave, sooner or later, the time you have spent to search and doing this job will be wasted. Never forget that time is money!
Most importantly, people who already are working and switching their jobs should make decisions wisely. You need to have good reasons to leave your current job. Leaving a job for personal issues with the higher management or for some more money is not a logical reason. Talk and consult with your friends and colleagues who can suggest you better.
Following are the two important factors to consider before accepting a job offer.
Match your knowledge and skills
Choosing a job with little money and with no career advancement is a big loss. Make a move only when you have a better position, and if the company is reputed in the job industry. You might have spent many years for earning experience in your field, but starting as a fresh will be idiocy.
Even if you don’t like the environment of your workplace you can handle the situation and people working there. What will you do if the new company and new colleagues will be even worse than these? You never know because no company or employer would be perfect. So, be sure and positively think about your options!
Balance your work and life style
The next thing is to look for a better life style. Working extra, over time or spending long time than you spend at your existing workplace, is another important factor that needs to be considered. If you think that working more than normal business hours is good, then you are mistaken. You are spoiling your life style this way. You should be able to balance your professional and personal life.
