Whether you are a recent graduate searching for the first full-time
job or a tenured worker who wants to transition into a new opportunity, there are multiple factors to consider in evaluating
your next job. According to recent articles in HR Magazine®, a SHRM publication, depending on your stage in your
work life, some considerations will rank higher than others.
Younger workers determine whether a job is a fit
based on factors such as good pay, strong ethical culture of the company and having solid training. Employers that are
trying to attract more experienced workers are adjusting their compensation perks to include programming related to a greater
focus on wellness, professional development, flexible working and assistance with retirement savings and planning.
No matter which category
you fall into, employers realize that employees' satisfaction is driven by respectful treatment, a wide range of compensation
types, trust between the employee and employer, job security, and opportunities to use their skills and abilities. So
when you are evaluating that next position, determine where you priorities lie, at this point in your career, with these factors
so you can best match your needs to what the company is offering you.
