What do you look for in a job, besides the pay? What is important to you?

Just curious on what Singaporeans look for in a job. Is it your boss, colleagues, jobscope, progression, work-life balance, etc?

Personally I find that having supportive co-workers, finding meaning in what you do, and work-life balance (so that you get to work on other aspects of your life) important.

My boss shared with me about the Career 5 Cs, they are a good summary and you can use them to guide your career choices. At different chpaters of your life you will prioritise them differently:

  • Career - Growth & Development
  • Culture - Your Boss, Your Mentors, Your Team, Work Environment
  • Compensation - Salary, Welfare
  • Convenience - Work-Life Balance, Travel Opportunity, Flexi-work Options
  • Calling - Your Passion (eg. Entrepreneur, Pastor), or whether the company's values are aligned with yours, i.e. finding meaning in what you do

Suggest to review your Career 5s regularly and re-caliberate accordingly
