Some candidates are fortunate enough to find themselves with competing job offers to consider. Choosing between multiple offers can be exciting, but before you make the big decision, consider these tips:
Consider the Opportunities Each Position Holds:
When deciding between different companies, consider the opportunities in each role. Ask yourself, “What am I gaining with this new position?” Will you be learning new skills and software? Are there opportunities for travel? Consider the likelihood of promotions and whether your new boss will serve as a mentor to you. Think about the industry represented by each offer and determine which one appeals to you the most.
Have Your Questions Answered by the Recruiter, Not the Client:
If you happen to have more questions about the role and offer, JSK recruiters are here to answer them. You already had the opportunity to ask questions during your communication and interview with the employer, and at this point you should know all of the pertinent information about the role. Recruiters should be used for any final questions you may have.
Make Your Decision Within 24 Hours:
By the time you receive the offers, you should be ready to make your decision within 24 hours. At this point you should have already weighed the pros and cons of each job. In an ideal situation, an immediate acceptance of one offer is recommended, as it will show your excitement for the opportunity. If you fail to make a decision within 24 hours, you could lose the offer from the company. The recruiters at JSK Recruiting can coach you through multiple scenarios, as every situation is unique and should be handled on a case-by-case basis.
