Continued: Reyer: Clarify your job values to help land a better-fitting position

Focus hard in the interview with your prospective boss on the goals for the position and explore how you’ll know if they’ve been achieved.

Also seek information on how the goals fit with the corporate direction as a whole; if they seem to be outliers, that will be a red flag.

Finally, think about your intuition. Looking back, did you have any unacknowledged concerns?

If so, let this be a lesson to trust yourself.

If not, think about ways you could enlist other people to help you take an objective look at new opportunities.

The last word

Know what you want and don’t settle. That will help you land in a better situation next time.

What challenges do you face at work? Send your questions to Liz Reyer, leadership coach and president of Reyer Coaching & Consulting in Eagan. She can be reached at
