Job outline

Create a job outline for the requirements and specifications of what you want in the job. Compare every job that you apply for with the original outline to see whether it is in line with your requirements. You can also complete a job outline form for every job to make the process of comparing the job with your original requirements and with other job offers easier. Aspects such as pace of work, environment, location options, project sizes, and department sizes, assignments, working with or without supervision, are recorded by placing a cross at the relevant factor.
