Whenever you’re invited for an interview or given a job connect, do not treat it as a chance or opportunity yet, but merely as a possibility, a suggestion.
Approach it with both enthusiasm and skepticism. You’re excited at the possibility that it might be a good fit for you but you’re also not rising your hopes yet.
You’re taking your time to interrogate all the aspects involved with a dispassionate eye.
You understand that many opportunities in life, both in relationships and jobs, will not be a good fit for you and you’re prepared to accept disappointments.
This is the only safeguard against making bad career moves that derail or divert you, all because of their glittering prospects in the beginning.
More so when your financial situation is bad, be especially careful because your need can cloud your thinking. Consult people who know you well and are likely to see what you don’t see.
