If you haven’t done so, you should research the company until you know what its purpose is. Why does the company exist? What problem is it trying to solve? Could you work towards this mission every day? </p><p><strong>The bottom line:</strong> If your values and beliefs don’t match up with the company’s, then you won’t be truly invested in what you’re doing.</p>

A lot of people underestimate the kind of toll a long and difficult commute will have on them. That’s why it’s important to be honest with yourself: Do you <em>really </em>want to spend two or more hours on the road every day? </p><p>Before saying “yes” to a job with a long commute, consider your schedule, lifestyle, and family commitments. Are you willing to sacrifice and compromise on certain areas of your life for this opportunity?</p>
