Money Money Money ...

I came across a question @ pre-interview or during the interview for a job position. This question is a Frequent Asked Question... "What are your selection criterias for a job?" So what would you answer for this question?

According to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, most of the working force are looking at Monetary Compensation as the most important job selection criteria.



Is Money that important as a criteria? What would you get if you lose the job without gaining any experience and knowledge... how would you survive in the future?

I usually looking at the balance between job enhancement and monetary compensation... So my top job criteria is not mainly focus on $$$$... I look for those job that could provide me high potential growth on my job career. Second criteria would be the environment, culture of the company. Of cause Money is also one of the criteria but it's not the top most... :p

So what would your job selection criteria?

PS: Hehehe... if you listen to the song Money Money Money by Abba... there's an easy way out... yup! married a rich person ... kakakaka :p

Tell the interviewer job satisfaction is what you want! You appreciate a job that will allow you to develop professionally and you will be given an opportunity when you prove yourself.
