Comparing opportunities? Is there a great template to do so?

I am in the lucky position of looking at two or three opportunities that are all viable CFO roles. I am looking to compare all the qualities of the 3 jobs next to each other and weight each of the criteria or variables to help make my decision on the best one to potentially. Do you have a tool or know of a great resource for this? Thanks!

The “value” of an opportunity is not inherent in the position itself, rather in how good a match it is to your skills and goals. The opportunity which best matches your skills and best fosters your career goals and life goals is the most valuable position for you.

The Five O'Clock Club has tools to help you make these measurements. Here they are:

SEVEN STORIES EXERCISE Take inventory of your skills and passions. List stories of when you accomplished something and enjoyed it. Include career and non-career activities. Include childhood and adult accomplishments. Pick the seven best stories then, one at a time, analyze what skills you employed and why you enjoyed it – what motivated and impassioned you.

40 YEAR VISION Describe your career and life situation as it is now and as you’d like it to be in 5 years, 10 yrs, 20 yrs, 30 yrs.

Now you have an inventory of your skills and goals. Which opportunity best matches your skills and passions? Which best leads to your long term career and life goals?
