When searching for a new job, everyone will offer their opinion on what you should do. The only opinion that matters is yours.

  1. Pinpoint the decision that needs to be made. Make a list of what your ideal situation would be.
  2. Try to get as much information as possible and be sure it is reliable.
  3. Ask for suggestions and advice. You don’t have to follow it, but you may discover some valuable tips along the way.
  4. Make a list of the pros and cons of the job – see which one tips the scale.
  5. Ask yourself what would be the best and worst – case scenario of this decision.
  6. Determine the value of each of the previous six steps and their consequences. List the pros and cons of each one; then compare them all to find the best solution in its proper perspective. If you make this decision, where will you be six months from now? In a year? In five years?
  7. Trust your intuition. Learn to trust your deeper instincts instead of following your immediate impulse.
  8. Recognize and honor mistakes throughout the process and use them to improve your decision-making skills the next time.
