A good job

25 Sep

I’ve come to the conclusion that there are 4 things to look for in a job:

  1. Reasonable pay
    1. Doesn’t have to be huge, but enough to live ok on
    2. (Plenty of studies have shown that after $x/year people aren’t any happier earning more)
  2. Good conditions
    1. People are OK
    2. Office is OK
    3. Commute is OK
    4. Hours are OK
  3. Useful skills
    1. If you ever have to or want to leave, you can get another job
    2. (i.e. don’t learn to make buggy whips)
  4. Blue sky
    1. If the business goes gangbusters, you’re in for a payday
    2. (i.e. your maximum upside isn’t a 5% bonus)
