Great read ... spot on target for career transition.

I recently read the Harvard Business Review article "Switching Jobs? Here's How to Make Sure You Won't Regret It" by Susan Peppercorn.


Key takeaways:

- Harris Poll indicates ~20% of job changers wish they hadn't.

- Poll by The Muse reported that ~3/4 of job changers found their new job to be 'very different' from what they were led to believe / thought it would be.


Four Strategies to help (and my paraphrased takeaways):

1. Structure Your Decision Process (ID your target and decision criteria - before you decide!)


2. Ask Exploratory Questions (Job Expectations? Employee engagement? Growth potential? Employee retention? etc.)


3. Beware of YOUR Cognitive biases (Don't overlook red-flags, because the shiny parts look sexy.)


4. Seek Insider Perspectives (NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK!!!!)


Be well my friends. Keep up the fire!
