whole picture

Sometimes we rush to accept a job because it follows a standard path that others have laid out. We think "standard" is good for the resume, but we might lose sight of our goals.

Eliminate any

We don't always think logically before making big decisions. Our variables change as our values change, and that can lead to uncertainty. So stop agonizing and start taking control.

Optimize for your happiness

We can feel lost with a job offer in front of us when we don't have a way to rank and weigh what matters for our career and lifestyle goals. Know the value of each opportunity.

Maximize your opportunity

Know what the true opportunity cost is for a given role. Get a better understanding of what you could be gaining, and more importantly, what you could be giving up.
