In your initial post, create a well-developed paragraph detailing your dream job and what specifics you are looking for in a long-term employment provider from the bullet lists above or create your own key points.
In a second paragraph, explore what elements of the P.R.I.C.E. model do you hope to find in this employer and what elements you will bring to the working community you will be joining? If the P.R.I.C.E. model were part of the interviewing process, which element would you choose to best represent your contribution to their working environment and why would you choose it?
