10 Things That You Should Consider Before Making a Career Move Part 4

Are you contemplating a career move but feeling overwhelmed by the decision-making process? Whether you’re eyeing a new opportunity or feeling dissatisfied with your current position, making an informed choice is crucial for your career growth and overall satisfaction. In our ongoing series, “Two Minute Tuesday,” we’re breaking down the essential questions you need to ask yourself before taking the leap into a new job.

As the Senior Managing Partner and Founder of Heavy Civil Resource Consultants, I’m Taylor Maurer, and I’m here to guide you through the intricacies of career decision-making. In our latest installment, we’re tackling the fourth critical question in our series: “What things will I get out of the new opportunity that are not available to me at my current employer, and how important are those things to me?”

When considering a job change, it’s essential to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the benefits and perks offered by the prospective employer. Beyond salary considerations, factors such as bonuses, vacation time, and financial incentives play a significant role in shaping your overall compensation package.

Additionally, non-monetary perks like health club memberships, medical and dental coverage, and opportunities for professional development should not be overlooked. These benefits can significantly impact your daily life and contribute to your overall well-being.

Practical aspects such as commuting time and travel requirements also warrant careful consideration. Evaluating how these factors align with your priorities and long-term goals is essential for making an informed decision about your career path.

To prioritize your considerations, reflect on what matters most to you. Is it financial security, work-life balance, or opportunities for professional growth? By ranking these factors and comparing them with what your current employer offers, you can gauge whether the new opportunity aligns with your aspirations.
