- Career path
- Work-life balance
That seems a bit shortsighted. While pay is important, many of the candidates we work with are not primarily motivated by compensation, but by improving their career by finding a firm or company that aligns with their chosen career path (which doesn’t necessarily mean that they are only looking for vertical growth). Many have deeply personal reasons for leaving and/or pursuing another position.
Over the years, we’ve seen many factors that have motivated candidates to move. Among them are platform, geography, firm/company financial stability, bill rate, ability to do more (or less) on a file, that they are currently bored in their position, to follow their value system or to follow a particular mentor.
We’d love to hear what you think. What factors do you consider when looking for a new position?
