A new job offer has the potential to sweep you off your feet. The job offer indicates that someone needs the person’s services and is willing to pay for them. It’s understandable if the candidate experiences some giddiness or maybe a fit of excitement. However, this is also a good time to consider what more the recruiter has to offer.
Before accepting a new job offer, there are a few things to think about. A few issues are discussed below that people frequently overlook while adding a new employer to their CV.
What is the catch?
When it comes to accepting a new job, most people consider what they will have to give in order to fulfill their new responsibilities. A new role, whatever it is, comes with new duties, which may need the candidate to adjust his social calendar accordingly.
Therefore the candidate is better advised to be in a position to be informed of what he would have to pay in return for success and if the so earned success really viable.
To quote the late vince lombardi,
” The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand “
Being in the right work environment
Before accepting a job offer, the candidate should meet with a couple of his new coworkers. Because he will be spending more than forty hours a week at a shared job with the same people, it is obvious that he must get along with them. This is extremely important because the wrong work atmosphere can be detrimental to a person’s career.
Rather than taking a leap of faith into a new offer, making a consistent effort to become acquainted with the atmosphere before accepting the employment could pay off handsomely.
Let the new job come with some juice for the resume
A good potential new job is more than just a solid wage package and a pleasant working atmosphere. It must also include anything that will allow the individual to explore other options. These could be opportunities to expand one’s knowledge or opportunities to advance within a certain industry. The opportunity element would also include the promise of providing a stepping stone for the candidate to achieve greater success.
