Are you looking for a new job but don’t quite know what you’re looking for? The three most important factors in accepting a new job are compensation, professional development, and a better work/life balance. But before you can even consider those factors and accept the position, there’s one more thing you must do: accept an interview for the job.
At NewConfig, we pair applicants with companies that will be a great fit for them, so you never have to worry about having your time wasted by companies beneath your level. All you have to do is wait for an interview offer. And then accept it.
You see, some passive job seekers, when offered a job interview, decline the offer—so, naturally, they’re not offered the job. It’s the “you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take” concept, and it really is a mistake, especially when the potential employer is offering you more money, more skill development, more leadership opportunities, or all of the above. Accepting a job interview is never a bad move because it helps you expand your professional network, can lead to a new career, and helps you develop vital soft skills.
