You know your life
Even if you know you like what a company stands for, knowing what you hope to get out of a job there, and what else matters in your life, will help you enforce boundaries. “Know clearly where you see yourself moving. How much entry-level work are you willing to do? You should know ahead of time. You know your life. You know how many hours you can commit to staying late. A lot of things you can figure out ahead of time before you have conversations with employers,” says Dr. Joy.
