Love Your Next Job

Making a career move should be a proactive effort that feels like dating. When you begin a job search, you should ask yourself many questions to form an idea of what you want because you seek a long-term relationship with a new employer.

Some questions you should ask yourself are:

  • What types of tasks do you want to fill your time at work?
  • What tasks do you want to avoid?
  • Why are you making a change now?
  • What type of manager do you want to work for?
  • What kinds of responsibilities are going to further your career?

There are no correct or wrong answers, but you should consider your answers regarding any position you’re applying for. This will better prepare you for the interview process.

An interview isn’t just a time for the hiring company to get to know you. It’s also a time for you to get to know the company. Knowing what you want will better help you form questions for the hiring company and ask them during the interview process.

Some questions to ask during the hiring process are:

  • What does the manager like to do?
  • How do they describe their management style?
  • What’s an average day in your position?
  • What are their expectations for your work?
  • Are the expectations realistic and achievable? How do you know if the expectations are realistic and achievable?
