My priorities
  • My priorities have changed with years. When I was small, what I valued was the interest and enjoyment of the job. Of course it is important to mind your bent for a job not to be torn apart between your job and your nature. But now I take into account some other criteria too.
My priorities
  • What matters to me is pay.
  • Besides we can’t but keep in mind the job security, convenient location, good prospects of promotion.
My priorities My priorities
  • What I mostly take into consideration is the working day. I’d like to avoid night shifts or working late. I don’t want to put up with working under pressure from 9 to 5. I feel like having flexible working hours. I mean piecework or working from home. I can’t do without freedom. I can’t stand taking responsibility for others – I’d rather work on my own, freelance to be exact.
My priorities My priorities
  • But what turns the scale is the creativity of the job (at least as far as I am concerned).
  • Thus, I am planning to have work which can give me freedom to create, to develop myself and to learn new things.
