Even if you're at a time of near-desperation, slow down and honestly ask yourself (and answer) the questions below. You want to minimize your having to look for a job, again, in the near future because this one didn’t live up to your expectations. And, by the way, these questions are ones you can ask yourself about your current job, too.
-Will this position broaden my experience, expose me to new areas, and teach me things I’ll need in the future?
-Is the management philosophy in sync with my own?
-Is it a stable management time for the company?
-Would I want to work here for the rest of my life – or even five years?
-What happened to my predecessor?
