I read various blogs for professional development and personal enrichment. One of them is The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau. Recently, Chris linked to this post detailing a marvelous tool and concept, the “one-page career ‘cheat-sheet’” from Sarah Peck at ItStartsWith.com.
Over the years I have held various jobs, and often have made lists of pros vs. cons for taking a job, or even staying at a job. But this is the single best one-page quick-test for career/job match that I have seen to date.
Even if you love the job you have, this would be an excellent check-off sheet to review once a year when you sit down to think about your future and your professional goals. It’s definitely going to be saved in my professional toolkit.
