The right job. You might think it’s an elusive dream. You’ve heard about friends and family who have found the right job, but you’re still struggling to find the perfect fit. You’ve been on some interviews and you finally have a job offer. But how do you know if you’ve found the right one? Here are a few signs that suggest that this gig is the one you’ve been looking for.

#1. You like the company culture

Is this company somewhere you’ll fit in and be happy? Via: Giphy

Your prospective company may not be like Google in The Internship, but you can’t underestimate the importance of company culture. If you’re going to be spending 40 hours a week at this job, you want to be comfortable with the environment. You’ll want the company culture to connect to your own personality. If you feel like this place is somewhere you can be yourself, that’s a great sign.

Think of the parts of company culture that are most important to you. Do you want a casual dress code? An open workspace? Or do you prefer a more structured environment? If you think you’ll mesh within the company culture, this is a pretty good sign that you’ve found the right job.

#2. You like the management style

Is your boss going to be someone you can work well with? Via: Giphy

It’s hard to like your job if you don’t agree with the management style. A big part of this comes down to your boss. Is your prospective boss someone you think you can learn from and work well with? What about bigger management? Does their style meld with your working style?

If the answer to either of those questions (and hopefully both) is “yes,” then that’s a great sign. It might be hard to feel it out from your interviews, but you can try talking to other team members. How do they feel about the management style at the company? Listen to what they have to say and be observant about the way people are working when you visit the company.

#3. You think you’ll enjoy the work

Are you going to love your work as much as Leslie Knope loves parks? Via: Giphy

Some people say that doing something you truly enjoy is a fool’s dream, but it doesn’t have to be. A job that you can enjoy, be passionate about, and find fulfilling is out there. It’s much easier to get up every morning and head to the office when the work is meaningful, challenging, interesting, and fits your skill set.

If you are considering a job where you think you’ll enjoy the work, it certainly could be the right job for you. And don’t be afraid to listen to your gut; if you think you would be miserable, even if it’s a “great job,” it’s OK to turn down that offer.

#4. You see growth potential

Can you see yourself moving up at this company? Are there growth opportunities? Via: Giphy

Most people don’t take a job hoping that they’re doing the same thing, over and over again, every day they work at that company. Workers want to get raises, move up in their places of employment, and further their careers. If you can see potential growth opportunities at your prospective company, that’s another sign that this is the right job for you.

You don’t need to see a clear and straight path for your future, but it’s important to know there’s options if you work hard and do a good job.

#5. The logistics work out

You can’t overlook the logistics. A job might seem like “the one,” but if the commute, hours, salary, or benefits aren’t what you want/need in a position, it’s worth another consideration.

You might not find a job where everything lines up perfectly (we all can hope, though), but if the majority of the logistics seem like they’ll work out, that’s a good sign. After all, you are probably taking this job to make a living. You’ll want a decent commute, reasonable hours, and a salary that you feel is fair and allows you to support yourself.

If a position you’re considering checks the majority of these boxes, it’s a safe bet you’ve found the right job.
