Do you feel unsatisfied with your job? Are you planning on a career change?
Let's face it. Before you blame your job, you need to know that your dissatisfaction is primarily because your job doesn't meet your core values in life. Or maybe it does, and you just failed to notice.
Here's a checklist for you to gauge your job satisfaction, and to check whether a possible career change may actually better the situation.
Go through the following criteria, and provide each of them an ideal grade (from 1 to 5), depending on how much you value it. Now, in the same list, find out how your current job scores against each of these points. Do the same with other potential job opportunities. You can now compare the results, and find out which career will suit your values and your lifestyle.
