Sometimes we don't give enough thought to whether we will be happy working at a new job.One manager who was laid off accepted a position for which he was overqualified. At first the job looked like an interesting challenge, but it turned out that the company's goals were wildly unrealistic, and everyone who had ever held the job had either quit or been fired. In short order, the manager was back in the job market.To avoid a similar fate, ask yourself the questions listed below before you accept the next offer.

Critics are never supposed to say they're wrong. I know that But I'm going to say it anyway. I was wrong. All those years that I steadfastly vowed, "I never want to review restaurants," I didn't know what I was missing.I used to say that having to observe, judge and write about a restaurant and its food would take the fun out of being there. And maybe they do -- a little bit. But being able to try any restaurant and anything on its menu -- at someone else's expense -- has its advantages. Advantages that make up for the fun it costs to pay close attention to what you're eating and where.

Consider it a fortunate accommodation, one of the true pleasures of life, that you have lived to actually see Tiger Woods strike a golf ball. It's an experience all unto itself. There has never been anything comparable to the length, accuracy and scoreboard results he's achieving. No need to study film clips, read dispatches from tournament sites, listen to what contemporary players, or golden heroes of the past, are saying about a young man of 24 whose ability has surpassed the intense examinations that golf offers to anyone, adult or adolescent who picks up a club and takes aim at the flagstick.

Waves of selling struck Wall Street again yesterday, driving the Dow Jones industrial average down 72.27 points to finish at 3,626.75, its lowest close since November. Officials imposed "computerized program trading curbs" twice during the gloomy session.With just today to go before the first quarter ends, the Dow is down 127 points, or 3.4 percent, from the beginning of the year.So, with stock and bond markets tumbling, let's turn to lighter topics, including this little quiz:TEST YOUR MEMORY: Many local firms, past and present, have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars popularizing their slogans.

There's an instructive exhibit at the City Hall Courtyard Galleries that says something about the losses involved in moving away from essentials.Baltimore has for some time had sister city relationships with two cities in Africa, Gbarnga in Liberia (since 1972) and Luxor in Egypt (since 1982). To mark the decades, there is a show of products from both cities, together with some explanation of the cities, their cultures, and the sister city programs.AThe products in the Luxor part consist largely of non-utilitarian objects -- jewelry, statuettes, reproductions of hieroglyphics, boxes and plates that look ornamental rather than useful.

Washington.--Truck scales will be needed to weigh the printed words spoken in coming weeks on campaign finance reform. Yet the only campaign law appropriate for a free society would contain just four words: ''No cash; full disclosure.''One reason ''reform'' is being pushed is to defuse the drive for term limitations for senators and congressmen. But the reform bill being debated in the Senate is fresh evidence of the need for term limits. It proves that the political class in its quest for protected incumbency would trample the Constitution.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - The one, the only, the unforgettable and irreplaceable Magic Johnson is going into the Hall of Fame. Gee, no kidding. This one has been on the schedule since that night in 1980 when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was out and Johnson jumped center in the NBA Finals, getting 42 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists against the Philadelphia 76ers and leading the Showtime Lakers to the first of five titles. He was a 20-year-old rookie. Forget the old line about waiving the five-year rule.
