Who Are You?

To determine your objectives in your job search and in your life, you must first analyze who you are. Start by summarizing the facts of your current situation. Include your current or former job status, your age, your education, your experience, your last salary, your financial needs, your financial resources, your skills, your interests, your deficiencies, your preferred work environment, your family’s desired lifestyle, and other personal facts. Establish your primary requirements for a job. Don’t undervalue your preferred work environment
and your desired lifestyle because they can be critical to your satisfaction and long-term success. It is human nature to look for a new job that corrects the deficiencies of the old one and to play down the attractive features of your last job, important things that were right in the old job. Don’t overcompensate for deficiencies. Consider all these issues, and weigh them appropriately.
