Consider These Factors When Deciding Between Two Jobs

Here are the factors they say you should consider:

  • Your value to the company: This is a big part of job satisfaction, so you want to make sure your skills will be fully utilised at your new job.
  • Opportunities to grow: How will the company invest in your professional development?
  • Work-life balance: Is the company flexible? How long is your commute?
  • Benefits: Compare superannuation options, insurance plans andpaid leave.
  • Job security: Is this a good place for your long-term employment?

Of course, the priority of these factors will depend on your own personal situation. For example, if you're planning a big move within the next five years, maybe job security is less important to you. Still, it's a helpful list to start you off in making such a big decision. For more detail on each factor, check out Women & Co.'s full post.
