Don't forget the amount of stress each position could create. Look at stress from three dimensions: relational (with spouse, partner, children, etc.) personal (unhealthy lifestyle), and work (tight deadlines, quality of work, etc.). You could have a great paying, prestigious job that is highly stressful. See more in my article http://www.projectmanagementadvisor.com/bl...decision-making
In general, the answer varies according to your priorities, Your current situation, your goals and your future plans.
Selection criteria might contain :
2) other perks and benefits
4) The role itself
5) Career Path
6) Savings and Expenses (if all positions are in jeddah or no. Jeddah is often more expensive than some other cities)
Now that you have your criteria, you need to set a weight for each criterion. Compare each criterion against each other to come up with a ponderation.
For example, you decide that benefits are more important than salary, but less important than office politics.
You assess each criterion for each position. Multiply each criterion by its weight to get the weighted assessment. Then sum each position's weighted assessments. The position with the highest score is the winner.
The key to decide is Masslow pyramid. Depending where you are it will impact your decision.
Done that already. Criteria where weighted, scores for each criteria was distributed, total score was calculated.
I just want to make sure that I'm not missing any important criteria.
I'm in the "Esteem" phase, and considering this in my decision.
I'm covering most of them. but what do you mean by "Timing" factor ?
Hello Adnan: Love what my colleagues have already offered. Perhaps add flexibility in hours or ability to work remotely? Travel expectations?
I was considering stress factor as "Workload", but you shed some light on the details.
Definitely gonna include it & recalculate the score.
I have "Flexibility" factor already. Will add "Travel Expectations"
