Selecting and evaluating jobs and employers is a task for which few are well prepared, yet the process of changing jobs requires major personal decisions. Improving the outcome involves evaluating the job, the employer, and the community in a systematic and comprehensive manner to determine both desirable and undesirable factors. All employment decisions are made in the context of comparing one's present situation with alternatives.
This book will provide the tools to evaluate a present or potential job, employer or community. Business consultant Gordon Bing draws on his years of experience to guide the reader to develop a plan of action, to identify critical factors such as personal goals, cultural factors, employment environment, job descriptions, company position, industry climate, and compensation and benefits that will result in a successful match for both the employee and the employer.
