Explore your options, feel out f there an interest, and decide if you want to take it to the next level. Finding a career you love is all about laying a solid foundation, and frankly, it can take some time. Desperate not to be alone (unemployed), way too many women rush into a commitment (ignoring all the warnings signs) with the wrong company and a year later they're back on the streets.
Phase Two: Dating
Offer has been made, but that doesn't mean you can't keep your eyes peeled for other more interesting options-you can look (go online and see what's available) but don't touch (accept an offer) unless you're willing to risk a breakup.
Phase Three:Marriage/Long Term Commitment
You've got that ring on your finger (the title, the raise, or the corner office you've been waiting for) and it's bigger, shinier, and more flauntable than you've ever imagined. It feels like smooth sailing from here on out, now's the time for consistent checking and balancing.
