The Opportunities Prioritization Matrix - Deepstash

The Opportunities Prioritization Matrix

The matrix has four quadrants of priority:

  • Focus Here: Opportunities in this quadrant are your “dream jobs.” They meet the two most important criteria you have identified so you should invest the most time pursuing these.
  • Waste of Time: Opportunities in this quadrant rank low for your most important criteria. They may not even be worth applying to
  • Be Mindful of Time Invested: These roles match your most important criteria but not the second.
  • Distractions: You’ll come across interesting opportunities that do not satisfy your most important criteria. Try not to spend time applying to them.
