What I Look For As A New Employee

9:23 PM

Back in my days of being an administrative assistant, I remember well what I was looking for when I was job searching. It was not easy to try to find a position that I wanted partly because I was picky about the type of job I would secure. There are so many things that I was looking for in a job but I will tell you that the first thing I wanted was flexible hours. Because I was still a college student, I needed something that would accommodate my busy school schedule. Also, due to my church schedule I needed Sunday off as well as Wednesday night. These types of needs really narrowed my search down greatly.

The next thing that I was looking for was a great benefits package. I was still living at home at the time but wanted to start a 401K and I was also looking to get better benefits than I had with my dad's insurance. This was also a difficult hurdle to maneuver because most employers do not have really wonderful benefits and it is hard to qualify for benefits when you are just starting out.

Next, I really wanted a smaller and more intimate work environment. I wanted to be able to know all of my co-workers without getting lost in a corporate environment. Because I am a people person, I was very interested in a close-knit group of people. It also really interested me to have an employer who cared about their employees and wanted their feedback. I do think it would have been pretty neat for my employer to give an employee survey to see if their employees were really happy with how they were taken care of. To me, that would have shown that they really do care about what people think and want to make changes if necessary.

So, there you have it...my "must haves" for a new job. I probably will not be entering the work force anytime soon but if I do, you can be sure that these are the things I will be focusing on.

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
