"Just because you can do the job doesn't mean you should"

A job needs to be at least balance of things you like and things you don't like.

1. skills break them into
a. Love (you hyper focus)
b. Hate (procrastinate)
c. Learn (interest)

Love:
-Research
-Organization
-Documentation /flow
-Detail oriented
-Persistent / tenacious
-Preserverence
-Multi tasking
-Open/honest
-Passion (cursing)
-collaboration
-team building
-Direct

Hate:
-Patience
-Grammar, spelling
-Clear, concise message communication
-Repetition
-Finances
-Giving individual feedback
-Filter / secrecy
-Clean language
-Politics (office)
-Shades of grey (I like black and white)

2. Strengths (how you do skills)

5.learner

What motivates you? What makes you happy?
-Puzzle solving
-Organizing
-Documenting
-Seeing results / feedback (for example, getting the server back online, or getting the -code to production and monitoring customer feedback)

What makes you stressed? What makes you anxious?
-Lack of process
-Lack of control

What makes you relaxed?


3. Environment (not all about perks) people, place, peripheral (for her, commute) what is important to you

Just because the environment is perfect, doesn't mean the job is

People
-I want to be with a team who cares about their product / work quality
-I want to be near friends and family

Place
-I want 4 seasons
-I want Northeast (near family)

Peripheral
-I want somewhere I can afford a place large enough for me and my 2 cats and rabbit
-I want a short commute or one I can use public transit
-I prefer a later work day, but could deal with not
-I prefer casual dress but can do light business casual (slacks and cute tops)
-I need occasional work flexibility so that I can spend holidays with family, and occasionally goto Information Security conferences far away without needing to use vacation (Rosh hashanah, passover, hanukkah, defcon, shmoocon).
-Work-life balance, I am a work-a-holic if the environment enables it
-A company that treats employees well, as people
