Finding a job that fits what you’re looking for is just as important as you being the right fit for a job. Listing out what is important to you and why is a great way to evaluate the jobs you’re interested in.

Even if you have a clear idea of your values, writing down why they matter to you and how they can fit into your career can be a helpful step in the job search process. Using our free workbook, you can organize and identify your values to help guide you in your job search.

First, define what worked for you in past roles that you’d also like to find in future jobs. What do you want less of? What did you like? What would you like in your next role?

Next, look through the list of values and pick out which are most important to you and rank how important they are. Ranking your values and needs in your career establishes what you expect in a role and creates a standard of what you want in a job.

Lastly, think of the why. Why is advancement important to you? Why does creative expression need to be a part of your future career? Looking at your top values and thinking about why they matter helps establish what motivates you in your career.
