Lt. Jason Clements, USN | A Job Is A Relationship: What Does Your Employer Give You

When considering a new job, it is crucial to ask beyond the job description. Although the company is interviewing you, you also need to decide if this company is a good fit for your lifestyle, and your future, as well. These critical things to consider can vary from compensation, 401k company match, vacation, extended leave, travel requirements, and more.

 

Listen to returning guest, Lt. Jason Clements, and I chat about all of these and more for an employer who goes beyond to serve their employees.
