The name of the game here is research, research, research!

j
For each shortlisted role find out:

 

How much could you expect to earn as a minimum and maximum (in your area) and what is the average salary?

j
Do you need to study? Is it not required, optional or necessary?

j
Are there other benefits, such as bonuses, working from home or being able to work for yourself etc?

 

Put all these details in a spreadsheet, word document or even on good old fashioned paper – you’ll need this later!
