Am I Making The Right Job Choice?


How do I know if I'm making the right choice for a job? A question that we all struggle with at some point. Unfortunately, I can't give you a 100% guarantee that you'll make the right choice after reading this, but I can certainly help you on your way from my role as a talent coach.

Who am I, what can I do and what do I want

Finding your first job starts with yourself. To give you guidance, it's good to think about the following 3 questions; who am I, what can I do and what do I want? These three questions form the basis for what you're looking for and what suits you. That is why it's certainly important to take the time for this. Also ask these questions to people close to you who know you well. Write for yourself what comes up in this and use it in your search.

The first step is to consider what are the elements that I would like to see in my job and company. Think of corporate culture, travel distance, formal or informal, working from home, etc. Look at your previous side jobs and internships to see if there are points that you know are important to you and would like to see reflected in your new job.

Taste the atmosphere during in-house days

Your feeling is also extremely important in your choice for a job. Visit several companies through introductory meetings and in-house days to sample the atmosphere and see if you feel a click. When you leave a meeting or in-house day, think about how I feel when I walk out the door.

With all this information you can make a list for yourself, with elements that you know are important to see in your job. Use this list in your interviews, this is also the time for you to ask all your questions and see if the role and organization suits you.

A smile is the most important!

Don't be afraid, you don't have to have made the best choice with your first employer. I'm now in my third job and by developing myself and gaining new experiences, I'm also gradually learning what is important to me.

Do you get a smile on your face with the organization and the role? Then you might be right!
