Part 6: Consider the non-financial incentives of making a move.

Part 7: Find a true, mutually beneficial learning culture.

The only thing better than finding an employer who makes the best use of your talents—and rewards you with both financial and non-financial incentives—is finding one that will help you expand those talents. Increasingly, employers are focusing on creating a culture of learning and growing with their employees. This is an advantage for you, in that you become even more valuable. It's also an advantage for them, because they don't need you to know everything the day you arrive for orientation.

There's no single way to spot a learning culture, but a good indicator is the workplace's ability to get new hires up to speed quickly. If the company promotes hitting the ground running, offers open access to experts and mentors, sends employees to conferences and seminars and welcomes new ideas, it's the right environment for learning.

Learning culture

There's no guarantee, but you should like your chances.

Today's shortage of experienced and qualified specialty professionals does not necessarily ensure you will advance your career. However, the more proactive you are—from expanding your hard skills to focusing on your soft skills to networking to considering factors beyond salary—the faster you will find the ideal job opportunity. Keep in mind that you are the prize that happens to be in high demand, and confidently pursue the position you deserve.
