4 Things to Consider When Finding Your Dream Job

Are you looking for your dream job?

Dr. Ben Carson says, “Through hard work, perseverance and a faith in God, you can live your dreams.”

A career is a good fit when your skills, interests, and personality find alignment.

But you also need to align your values with a company’s culture where you hope to be hired.

The Association of Talent Development offers some suggestions to consider when searching for your dream job!

Think About the Logistics

Ask about the hours and if you’ll be working weekends or overtime.

Find out the length of your commute, it will be a deciding factor for your quality of life and the impact it may have on your family and marriage.

There may be other details you want to take into consideration, such as if travel is required or if relocation is a possibility.

Check out the Work Environment

What will your workspace be like? Many companies have transitioned to an open floor plan, Or they may use cubicles, or individual offices. Consider how that will impact you. Do you need it to be extremely quiet or can you appreciate a little background chatter? Are they flexible to let you work from home?

Ask About Compensation and Growth

Obviously your salary or hourly rate is a crucial factor. Specifics like benefits, time off, and insurance all play a large role in determining a good fit for you.

The job description should outline your generalelse responsibilities, but be sure to clarify what is actually expected of you in the role.

Try to identify areas where you can see growth in the organization and for yourself.

Learn About the Culture and Reputation

Is the company reputable and full of integrity? The way an organization treats its employees and customers can be an accurate indicator of their internal beliefs and character.

Growth is also a great indicator of health within an organization. This can be a sign of good leadership, stable finances, and a positive work environment.

Remember, whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
