Download Cheat Sheet: How to chose between two different jobs

This article was originally published on www.careercare.info which is my another blog for students and job seekers. However, I feel this is beneficial for readers within the scope of this blog too. 

Throughout the academic career, an individual acquire many skills. From among the skill sets he / she can apply for couple of jobs. Today's question arise from my Quora Profile; an user asked which is better job, editing or marketing?

Editing and Marketing are very broad terms, but from the question I felt and most precisely, I suppose, this person is eligible for both the jobs but not pretty sure to which to make a career choice. For obvious reasons, I think of perhaps this is the problems of many job seekers when they are stuck in selecting a career.

Suppose you have two jobs to chose from Job A and B or three Jobs, Job A, B and C then how to select the better one that fits you?

Consider following points when deciding between Jobs. Ask to yourself following questions

    What are the eligibility requirements to apply for this job?
    What are the new things I need to learn to do this job? Oo I have necessary skills?
    Where I want to be 2 year / 3 year / 5 year down the line? Can this job take me to the place in a fixed period of time?
    What are the possibilities for growth and promotions?
    How much money I will make from this job?
    Whether I will be able to buy a house and save enough for retirement?
    If this job will help me in building better relationship with people?
    Which job I will really enjoy doing the most?
    Which job will give me better and healthy work environment?
    Whether I will be able to make changes with time and grow with inustry?

 Here is method to method to evaluate possibilities

    Take an spreadsheet, Microsoft XL, Google Sheet or Any you use.
    In the sheet mark First Column A as Question, Second Column B as Job A or Job Title, Second Column C as Job B or Job Title, similarly you can mark Job C and Job D
    Under the column A, fill these questions 1 to 10
    Now against each question give points to each job. For example; 8 points for question no 2 against Job A and 7.5 points against job B
    Now sum all the points given against each question for each job.
    At the end you will get score of Job on a scale of 10.

Now is the time to decision making

Go for the job that has done well on your evaluation scale. In case of a tie, go for the one that you  will truly love doing.

Trust me, love is alive.

Why FAIL is so noisy

FAIL, FAIl, FAil, Fail, failWhen you fail, it creates deafening noise, for a moment it feels, your failure is the only news in the universe, people talk day in and night out about your failure and slowly noise diminishes.Nobody cares how much efforts you have put in there to create that mess. You feel dejected, you feel rejected, you feel lonely, you feel ashamed. You feel like a culprit.Often in the mist of hollow noises you forget to enjoy that failure point, you forget to celebrate that milestone and forget the fact that success is always next to failure.If you won't recognize your milestone why others will. People wants fruits not trees. It is the you who dared to plant the tree give it ample time to grow. You wished for the tree not fruits and tree is there. Fruit is a by product of tree.

Dear VIKRAM we miss you

You reached for the moon, we eagerly waited this side on earth to see you landing on Moon. We were excited, as every moment passed during descent we hold our breaths tightly. Our fingers were crossed and all of a sudden you gone out of sight from our computers.
This is not easy to realize that a baby is lost early and we can do nothing. But you are brave, you are courageous and you are unique.
My heart goes with you. And hope you are in good health and enjoying your new place the Moon.
Miss you Vikram.
