Should you turn down jobs when looking for work?

Many people face a battle very day in looking for work. It may be that you are out of work due to being made redundant, just finished education or because you have left your previous job without having anything else lined up. You may have had to move to another area or give up work to look after a loved one. When the times comes to start the job hunting process again people often feel pressured into rushing into a job that they don’t really want to do. This can be essential if you are desperate for work and need an income instantly, but if you are able to spend a little bit more time job hunting then you may not always take the first job you are offered.

When looking to apply for a new job position, not only should you consider if you have the relevant experience and qualifications but also if you think you will get satisfaction out of the role? If the answer is no then you probably shouldn’t even apply.

Low job satisfaction can have a massive impact on how productive you are at work but also a negative impact on your home life.
