Transitioning from one tech job to another can be a daunting task. A key variable in the equation is knowing what to look for in the next step of your career. While it takes time to find the right fit, going in with a clear set of priorities will help you search for a new job with confidence and understand what you really want in a new role. Once you know your priorities, you can quickly recognize the right tech opportunities for you, and alternatively, identify the ones that are not a good fit.
So, you’re ready to get back on the market. Perhaps your contract is coming to an end, or maybe you’re just ready to move on, but either way things may seem a little up in the air right now and you're ready to find your next tech role. There is one detail that you may want to lock down soon: how much you expect to be paid at your next job.
At this point, you already know what technology you’re passionate about, the direction of your career trajectory, and your desired field or industry. Only you can really know what you need to be happy and productive and understanding this will help you know which tech jobs are right for you to apply.

A candidate once asked us, "I found my dream role at a new company and went to put in my notice – but my boss insisted that I stay, countering with a generous raise and bigger office. Which offer, the counteroffer or outside offer, would be better for my career?"
With top candidates staying on the market for 10 days or less, locating and hiring qualified talent is becoming increasingly difficult in the tech industry. Recruiters and hiring managers know the best architects, engineers, and developers are on the market for a matter of hours, not days. Gone are the times of making a hiring decision between top candidates over the course of several weeks or months, leaving employers in need of a fresh approach to traditional hiring methods. In today’s candidate-driven market, having a partner who can represent your brand, speak for your culture, and effectively source hard-to-fill positions is priceless.
