If you are considering whether or not to take a job, and you are having trouble deciding if it is the right move for you, try this trick.

 Put a date on your resume 3 years in the future, and write the job into your resume. Look at your resume with the opportunity included and examine how you feel. Are you happy to be that person? Does the job seem to lead naturally into the next role?

This will help you make sure that you are accepting the job for strategic reasons, not opportunistic ones.
