What are you looking for?

Apart from the type of job you’d like, it’s important to consider the other elements that might come with a different career. What are the hours like? Are they more or less? Are you able to commit to them? What about the salary? Are you happy to accept a paycut? Often candidates like the idea of a different role, but miss the crucial facts that it might come with a lifestyle change too.
