As a rockstar, you have a couple or more opportunities to choose from. Organizations are constantly wooing you to join them or you rock out on interviews and receive multiple offers.
Which do you choose?
If you're like most people, you might make a list of pros and cons.
Or you might take a look at the potential salaries and just choose the one offering you the most moolah. Related to that are the different titles you're being offered so you might choose the title that may be most prestigious.
Or you consider where these opportunities are located. You might want to get out of the big city. Or you might want to go where the lights are always on. Different strokes for different folks.
Well, you're pretty smart so you look at the different industries and figure out which one has the brightest growth prospects. A rising tide lifts all boats. You can't be faulted for making a decision from this angle.
But if you're wise, you'll choose the people behind those opportunities and teams. You'll look for an absence of assholes. You'll look for linchpins. You'll look for good people. Because in the end, teams with good people win more often than not.
There are a ton of factors you can consider before making a choice.
Choose people first. Industry future potential is a close second.
