Assessing a Job Offer
The prospect of starting a new role can be exciting but it is crucial that you don’t let the elation of a job offer blind your judgement.
Whether you have multiple job offers or just one, here are four questions to ask yourself before you decide on what to do next.
Am I Happy with the Compensation?
Our latest Salary Survey found that a higher salary was the top priority for 40% of people seeking a new job. Whether you’re one of those individuals or not, you need to ask yourself whether the rise or fall in salary would be worth it in the long-term?
In most cases, employers may be open to negotiating salary. A specialist Recruiter will know whether a role is outside of your salary expectations and will advise you early in the process to avoid wasting your time. They will also negotiate salary on your behalf to ensure you’ll be paid what you’re worth and allow you time to focus on other areas, such as the impact this role might have on your personal life.
