👉 Execute: Opportunities Prioritization Matrix (Digital)
Opportunities Prioritization Matrix Below is a digital version of the Opportunities Prioritization Matrix included in the article and embedded to the right.
Setting up the matrix • Determine axes: You can set your matrix up two ways: (i) include the two most important categories from your Job Search Criteria Matrix on either axes or (ii) consider all the criteria as "fit" against the difficulty (e.g. application length, time intensity of preparing and completing the interview process, etc.)
Note In short, you want to avoid opportunities that are a low match to your selected criteria as they are distractions and channel your energy towards opportunities that align closely with your wants and needs; you want to invest the most amount of time in high fit jobs with rigorous interview processes over those with less rigorous interview processes.
