The most important thing is the "fit" between your personal strengths and preferences and the work environment. The search for the best job begins and ends with examining yourself -- really knowing yourself well.
After you have thoroughly assessed yourself -- not only your likes and dislikes, but also your strengths and weaknesses. Then you can look at the different possible jobs and see which ones meet your needs the best.
