What Do You Look For In A Job?

Would you opt for a higher compensation in lieu of a shorter commute, flexible working hours, the ability to work from home when needed, and wearing what you want to work?

I certainly wouldn’t and I’ve been fortunate enough to have the financial flexibility to choose the latter.

Having a solid emergency fund in place and being debt free are what will let you make the obvious choice. Of course, secondary income always helps and you should work towards having one or two in place.

That said, have you ever had to make this choice in the past?

  1. I look for both in a Job.. Higher compensation, Shorter commute to work, flexible hours and most importantly I must have the freedom to wear what I want to work everyday…Yes I do agree secondary income is very important, but there aren’t many secondary business that are very successful..

  2. Hmmm finally some interesting tweets in your blog :p
    @ topic –
    Well, to be honest I never had the luxury of either but anyway given a chance and provided financial flexibility, I would anyday choose the 2nd one over the 1st. As for me, I would want to explore and cherish the other facets that life has to offer than just be 1 dimensional ;)
