Job seekers produce credentials during application for work, don’t you think employers should too?

If you have what it takes, you can be choosy

Big companies are usually picky in selecting employees. While small industries are satisfied in hiring applicants considering their good personality, health and their eagerness to work, huge establishments hire applicants based from their high quality ideals. These employees are reviewed carefully. They are screened down through a series of examinations. And two to three interviews are always necessary before finally being hired.

Looking for work with giant and popular companies may be intimidating but if you got what it takes, you should also be choosy. The following can be helpful in making you decide:

Institution stability

An established company means that it has been on the business for years or decades. One can be sure of its integrity. It would be a real pride in working for a popular institution and more to that, desirable number of benefits and promotions are also something to look forward to.

Never the less, stable institution may require great expectations from you. You may have to work harder with extra hours. Having quality time with family or loved ones may be narrowed down. And definitely, if you won’t be up to it, your health could be at risk.

The salary

Big companies usually give big salaries, but not all of them. Of course, they have some guidelines to follow. Often, job seekers are misled by big sums of pay. Most of them do not consider that taxes and most benefits (particularly, those unnecessary) are also deducted from the payroll.

Work location and schedule

A close work place is cheaper and convenient. It can also be beneficial to health, since you will be more relaxed without much traveling.

As for the schedule, long hours of work can be hazardous to health and family. A half or an hour daily break is refreshing. It will help the mind refocus.

A day off from job at least once a week is also important, not only for rest and recreation, but more importantly for some quality time with loved ones.

It’s all up to you

What matters to you most? Is it money or your health? Is it your career or family?

People needs and wants vary. Most would choose to devote on a job, working hard night and day. If it’s for the money or career growth, they have accepted the consequences behind their decision. They would find a way to make up with their families and they will know how to take care of themselves.

Your quality job depends on how will you like them to be. Career opportunities may be misleading. Large figures maybe attractive but you may not like the policies behind it.

Analyze your job offers. A wrong employment for you is a waste of time and effort. Bear in mind that any job comfortable and enjoyable for you, means not working at all.

A half hour break? My advice is know your labor laws. In the U.S. a person is required to have a 15 minute paid break for every 4 hours worked and 30 minute break when working 6+ hours.
