As I working mom, I know most of you have been at a career cross roads. This is the position I find myself in most recently. There are two different opportunities that have presented themselves. I feel lucky to be able to have options. However, each opportunity has pros and cons that make them unique and does not necessarily give me a clear understanding of the front runner.
Pre-kids the job I was interested in the most and that would advance my career the most was the job I always took. Money played a large roll as well. Now that I am a mom there are so many other caveats to nash about in my head.
- Will I have flexibility?
- Is there travel?
- What are the benefits?
- How is the pay structured?
- What do the evening and weekends look like?
I am finding that the travel and flexibility are two things I really feel strongly about as I explore my next move.
What do you think about when you are making career changes? What helped you make the decision? Thank you in advance for your advice.
Peace, Love & Crossroads,
