Whether you are an active job seeker or not, the idea of committing to a future working in the unchartered territory is stressful! Saying yes to a job that doesn’t support your career goals may reduce your motivation and add unnecessary stress to your life. But saying no may mean missed opportunities for personal and professional growth!

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before saying “YES!” to a new job.

1. What is your motivation for accepting a new job?

Hate the job you’re in? Jumping at the first job offer you get may lead you to hate that job too.  Looking to expand your experience? Make sure that you’ll be getting the experience you want before saying yes! Time for a change? Change is good, go for it!

2. What are your short-term goals in a job?

Do you want to improve your client service skills? Learn more about human resources? Short term goals are just as important as long-term goals. Identify some short term goals to help steer you toward your end goal.

3. What is your career end goal?

It’s okay if you don’t know. Pick a ‘ballpark’ end goal. Do you want to manage people? Be a successful writer? Teach? Be an expert in accounting? Identify what you are working towards and start building the path thereby accepting jobs that will help with your personal and professional development.

4. Will this job add valuable skills and experience to your resume?

Any experience is a good experience. But don’t settle for just any experiences. What skills and experiences can this job offer you that will help you reach your short-term and long-term career goals?

5. What do you value most in a job?

Do you value autonomy? Challenges? Opportunities to work in a team environment? Do some research. Interview your interviewer and find out if your values are the right fit for the job they are offering you.

6. What work-related activities keep you from staring at the clock?

Do project base activities keep you engaged all day? Maybe math related work makes time fly by. Identify what you love to do at work, and identify the things you hate while you’re at it. If you’ve been offered an administrative opportunity, and you hate administrative tasks, pass on the job and find another, more enjoyable way to add those skills to your resume.

Choose wisely and aim for the stars!

Is ‘write more’ or ‘start a novel’ on your list of resolutions for 2017? Here are a few tips for sticking to that resolution and reaching your writing goals:

1. Set yourself targets and write them down. Try not to make your targets overly ambitious. For example, you could aim to write 500 words every week, or one short story a month. Setting yourself tangible goals will motivate you to stick to them and give you a sense of satisfaction every time you get to cross one off the list.
