  • Feeling fulfilled in what you (don’t worry — we’ll come to that in a moment)
  • The package you will get — salary, bonuses, perks, pension etc.
  • The recognition in place
  • The environment in which you will work
  • The team with whom you will work
  • The opportunities for growth, development and progression
  • The logistics — commute time, mode of transport and expense, working hours etc.
  1. What drives/motivates you? The things that get you out of bed not because you have to but because you want to.
  2. What are you really good at? These are things people actively comment on or things they ask you specifically to help with.
  3. What will a business or clients pay you for? This could be your skills, your knowledge base, your experience, your network — encompass everything.
