THE 4 P’S OF A CAREER MOVE

Often, candidates only take a short-term perspective on their next position, looking at it as merely a “job change” and focusing very heavily on compensation. Unfortunately, this often leads to a short duration and a wasted opportunity. We recommend candidates view this as a “career move” and dig in heavily on the 4P’s described below.

  • How solid is the leadership of the company, as well as your immediate supervisor?
  • Is this their first rodeo or have they shown consistent, positive leadership in their track record?
  • What can you learn from these folks?
  • Is the product or service unique?
  • Are there barriers to entry or patents?
  • Is this a “one-trick pony” company or are their new products coming down the pipeline?
  • Do they “walk their talk”?
  • Do they invest in their employees and promote from within?
  • Is it an open, ethical, transparent culture or is everyone periodically
  • looking over their shoulder (“watch your back!”)
  • We all have bills to pay and need to be fairly rewarded
  • Are there some Long Term Incentives (LTI) that employees can receive and share the company’s gains?
