Once upon a time, changing jobs every few years would look bad on your resume, it meant that the employee either did not get along with the team or had commitment issues. Times are changing, Millennials have a very strong desire to continuously learn and develop their skills which lead to frequent job changes.
Two to three years is considered an average tenure of an employee. Toggling between many companies and industries becomes a vital part of current professionals. The advantage of this trend is that there are many choices throughout your career, the disadvantage is that not all those choices might be good.
Choosing the right job or deciding on “The” company to work for might not be the dilemma of only experienced job seekers, but is a daunting task even for beginners. No matter how lucrative the opportunity is, it’s easy for seasoned as well as first timers to divert all their attention in impressing the right people, in the process, they forget to weigh certain pros and cons.
Even before you start considering which company might be suitable to you, it’s a good idea to introspect, do some self-analysis in understanding what gets you going, to make the right career choice.
To broadly classify, certain personalities love to seek new opportunities, think abstractly, are quick decision makers. They usually like to work in the creative fields or in an entrepreneurship set up. Their opposites are personalities that prefer planning and detailing, are analytical thinkers and do not take decisions until all points are considered, they avoid spearheading projects with limited resources etc., while a mix of both these personality types is imperative, one needs to know where you learn before choosing a career. As the creative personality, might not function at full capacity with a 9-5 setup.
Once the right career path is selected with due diligence, you need to list down the non-negotiables. Remember your priorities will change with age and experience, hence it is a good practice to re-visit the list from time to time.
Certain common factors could be-
Development Plan –  Consider a good training and development opportunity. A bigger company might offer this and similarly, in a smaller company you might have more responsibility, both would lead to a skill set growth, while one might be organised the other would teach you practical application, choose where you learn. Is the work atmosphere conducive? Also, understand the organisational hierarchy, separate the title from the responsibility, because at the end of the day it is what you do that will get you your next opportunity.
Job Reviews – it is a good thought to know your review/appraisal cycle. If you are a person who needs regular affirmations this will become your driving point. Regular reviews also mean you are that much closer to your next promotion. Change Management Banner
Company Review – Company Image is crucial. It’s a known fact, companies that don’t always keep up the pace are surpassed by the ones who do. Some factors into account would be to check the company’s leadership team. Do you see followers or innovators? Any success stories, how do they treat their employees. Client/ customer testimonials, look at their ex-employees, what opportunity did they have? In terms of technology how advanced or accepting the company is. Research your boss, estimate his personality, does it match yours?
Location – Two ways to look at it (A) where is your office located, the company address has an obvious impact, how well connected is it in terms of transport (B) how much are you willing to invest in terms of time and money. What are your options, does your office have flex hours or promote work from home? Leave policy? It’s also good to see if you blend into the vibe and culture of a certain setup. Research shows even with generous packages if the vibe, location or culture is a misfit you will reach a saturation point much faster than in a vice versa situation.
Salary – In the beginning of your career there would be some time you need to invest in hard work, however, consider the location, benefits, travel, and the salary scale of future employees of the brand you plan to join, merely taking your decision on the take home amount is not advisable.
