It’s almost impossible to determine exactly which industry, which company, and which position will make you happy, keep you motivated, and inspire you for years to come. But doing a bit of soul searching can help and make you feel more in control of your career.

Take some time to answer the following five questions. Write down your answers, look for the connections, and discover a more clear vision about what you’re looking for in a career, in a company, and in the day-to-day activities of your job.

As you search and apply for positions, revisit this list. If it doesn’t meet your criteria, move on. Being clear about what you’re looking for can not only help you ensure happiness when you do land a job but it can also help you land a job in the first place. If you’re passionate and can clearly communicate your wants and needs, you’ll be able to better represent yourself as the perfect candidate.
