A great job should NEVER be about just a big paycheck. True career fulfillment also needs:
1) REAL challenges. You can’t spend 40-50 hours a week doing mind-numbing tasks and think you’re setting yourself up for something better. You’re not.
2) MENTORSHIP. 90% of the executives I coach list “loss of a mentor” as the primary reason for seeking a new role. You need DIRECTION and GUIDANCE to get to that next level!
3) WORK-LIFE BALANCE. Not optional, required.
4) A LEADERSHIP TEAM THAT SHARES YOUR VALUES. Are you being heard?
Did you know: Studies show that a candidate who is REFERRED by a current employee is 40% MORE LIKELY TO BE HIRED!
This is why TAPPING YOUR NETWORK, EXPANDING YOUR NETWORK, and SETTING UP AT LEAST 3 INFORMATIONAL INTERVIEWS PER WEEK with key industry players will get you further, faster, than answering job postings.
NEVER accept a job offer before asking this question:
“What criteria will be used to judge my performance in this role? What does success look like during the first 30, 60, and 90 days?”
You need to understand PRECISELY what an employer’s expecting you to deliver!
