Let's say you've done the "soul searching" and research you needed to know what industry/field best suits your desires. Now you need to decide which company in that industry/field will offer you your more specific desires.
You'll need to begin your research again.
Decide if you're ready, able and willing to move across the state, across the country or even across the world to be with a company if taking a position with them means doing so.
This can be a major decision. Especially if you have dependents.
If you're single, without any obligations to family or others, this question becomes easier. But when you're involved with someone or you're married, then it becomes a question of what's best for the both of you.
Time was, when a man's work meant moving, the woman made the move with him. This stems mostly from a time when the woman didn't need to work outside of the home and she was dependent on him.
Women in the work force - full force
Today, it's known that at least 85% of all households in America need two people working just to pay the bills, (and Uncle Sam).
Sometimes it happens that a woman won't want to leave her work position. Sometimes it happens that she makes more money than he does.
There have been recent stories about how, in these cases, the man turns down a position that means moving or that partners have agreed to live apart in order to get or keep their respective positions.
Sometimes it's her position that "demands" moving. Then you have the flip side of this coin and all its possible solutions.
And if you have kids, you'll need to think about what they desire. Some kids will be happy about moving. Some will not. If you decide to move, find out everything you can about the area's schools, places of interest and entertainment for kids and "sell" them on these.
Whatever your relationships, the aspect of moving is one you'll need to decide up front when Choosing a Company.
Once you have decided this, you'll know where you're willing to go to work. Then you can begin researching the companies in those areas.
What you need from a company
A company will need to be very good and offer you a very good deal to make you want to make that move. You'll need to be able to believe they can offer you the chance(s) you need to be successful.
And even if you're not willing or don't need to move to join a company, decide what you need to know about the company to make you want to work with them.
Find out all you can about the company's history:
* Who started the company
* When the company was started
* Why the company was started
* Where the money came from to start the company
Then find out all you can about their current status. Not just within the work world but also within their community. What does the general population have to say about them? Research everything you can find at your local library and on the Internet.
What you want from a company
Now draw up a realistic list of your personal desires in Choosing a Company. These can include environmental concerns as well as the basics of what position you will take, the rate of pay and benefits.
If there's more than one company that interests you, draw up a list making comparisons of these different desires.
* Offers you the best position
* Pays more
* Has the best benefits
* Is most likely to stay in business and be profitable
* Looks to be the one from which you'll be able to retire
Do your research and you'll be able to answer all of these important questions.
Be very clear about what you desire from a company and for yourself before Choosing a Company.
Research which company best satisfies all of these desires.
