Values play an integral part in life and in choosing a new position. Everyone has values but often your values are different from your friends so you can’t ultimately consult them for what’s best for you. Then again sometimes your friends can see better what is of interest to you.
Some people are independent and then should choose a position with autonomy, be it a private practice position or an independent contractor. Other people value their family highly and should choose a position that is 9 AM – 5 PM, such as a hospital employee. Take time to consider what is important to you.
