Ensure that your first job meets these two criteria

I often encounter two types of graduate students and postdocs who are on the job market. 

The first type is looking for the perfect job.  Students in this category want their first job to meet all of their career requirements such as responsibilities, salary, location, growth opportunities, and company culture. Students in the second category only have one requirement for their next job: anything but a postdoc.  

Unfortunately, both types of students are misguided and can make preventable career mistakes.
