Thinking about celebrating this Independence Day with a job change? Consider these four tips for evaluating a new opportunity:

Carefully evaluate the offer. Don't just consider whether the salary is competitive. Also take a close look at the corporate culture and daily job duties. Would they make you happy?

Look at the company's track record. You want to make sure you're joining a firm that's financially stable and growing.

Evaluate the perks. An employee-friendly company will offer benefits such as flexible schedules, telecommuting options, recognition programs, and mentoring and training opportunities.

Consider your future career path. Ask the hiring manager about the potential for growth at the company. He should be able to describe your potential career paths within the organization and the support system that will help you achieve your goals.
