What to consider before you accept your next .NET development role

‘.NET developers wanted!’ ‘.NET developer with scrum experience needed!’

These are just a few of the many job titles you may see pop up on your LinkedIn feed. When you’re a .NET developer, there’s a wide range of jobs available, and such a large amount of choice could easily make you think the grass is greener. But is that really the case? We’ve outlined a few of the most important things to consider before moving on to your next role.

Don’t fall into the trap of popular .NET demand

When you’re a .NET developer, you probably get approached frequently with job openings. As flattering as it might be when you’re approached by a hiring manager or recruiter, be selective about who you start a conversation with. If you’re being presented with numerous jobs that aren’t right for you, it’s a huge waste of your time. Working with a company like Huxley means you’ll be speaking to a consultant who’ll listen to your specific requirements and work hard to find a .NET role that suits you.  

Know what you’re looking for in your next .NET role

It’s important to know what you’re looking for in your next .NET role. Ask yourself the following questions to help you decide what the biggest factors are when it comes to choosing your next job:

  • Why do you want to move jobs?

  • Are you looking for more a more challenging role or one with less demands?

  • Do you want to have a more specialised approach, full stack, or develop certain skills?

  • What are the career opportunities offered? Ask the company how this works in practise.

What kind of company is right for you?

So you know what kind of .NET job you’re dreaming of, now it’s time to figure out what type of company you’d like to work for. Consider what best suits your personality and skills. Would you prefer to work for a global corporation or a small start-up? And what distance are you willing to travel? If a company offers you a job that’s miles away, discuss whether working from home is an option. If not, ask yourself if it’s worth your while. Factors like these could make all the difference as to whether this job is right for you.
