Have you done a 10-10-10 analysis?
Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, had some sort of interesting ways of assessing a job offer. She quotes Dan Heath, who with his brother Chip, wrote Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work.
In looking at a job offer--or any decision--think how you would advise a friend who is not you.
You need to know what the walk-away point is--the deal breaker.
Heath recommends a 10-10-10 analysis. How would you feel about taking the job in 10 minutes? In ten months? In ten years? No one will have the perfect thing they will love in 10 years--so just try it out.
There is also the vanishing options test--if you don't take this job, where does it leave you?
Or you could dip your toe in--maybe volunteer in the field to see how you feel about it.
Look for multiple jobs at one time--I call this working with a net.
