1) Salary range, self explanatory

2) I was caretaker for my mom for seven years which ended in 2024.

3) Company size. I seek companies under 50 people. Small companies usually have more work than people. Large companies have more animosity.

4) Interesting technical domain.

5) Red Flags. I avoid jobs which gush about diversity and inclusion.

6) Integrity. I avoid large IT companies like Google, Amazon, etc.

7) I'm now in Tallahassee for several reasons. Real estate cost, State capitol, small city and I wanted to be on the right side of the next civil war.
