We’ll zero in on this question, a question that we receive regularly from indecisive candidates.
Before a new job lures you into its seductive maw…take your time to mull over your next career move.

Without getting too deep in the weeds, use one simple trick…It is a simple trick that candidates tend to forget about. This feat can go a long way in making the right choice for yourself!
Keeping the big picture in mind, ponder for a second and ask yourself: 𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗸 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗽𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗹 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗷𝘂𝗻𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗷𝗼𝗯?
If we can aver that on average, one-third of your life is spent at work, 𝘄𝗲 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗮𝘁 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗮 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗿𝗼𝗹𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵!
The point is when the job application process is stomach-churning that is most probably the best epiphany you will get!
A major no-no !
If something does not feel right to you during the interview process, in most cases it proves to be right later on…
There you have your answer…only imagine how you will feel working for them.
Remember you call the shots in your life and you are the one paying the consequences for it, no one else.
Take the time, and if the new job opportunity sits well with you, it is most probably the best choice, so you will be the only one to really know!
Self-Care means observing how you feel!

What is good for you, might not be good for me, to each their own, the point is that no one else will perform your job for you than you, so you have to decide what feels right!
