3 Tips for Choosing the Best Job Offer

Woman Choosing the Best Job OfferIf you’re in the market for a new job, chances are good you’ve been interviewing with lots of potential employers and maybe even had an offer come your way. Maybe you’ve had several offers come your way – which is always a good situation to be in.

Receiving multiple job offers can be a confidence booster. It can also give you some negotiating power. But getting more than one job offer comes with an extra round of decision making. So which job offer selection will you make?

Follow these 3 tips for choosing the best job offer:

Make a Priority List
Depending on which stage of life or work you’re in, the priorities for your new job will be different compared to someone else. Make a list of your current priorities and see how each job stacks up to the other. Some factors to think about include salary, benefits, length of work commute, schedule flexibility, work/life balance, company culture and other perks like a cafeteria, gym, onsite daycare or continuing education opportunities. 

Do More Research
Leave no stone unturned when it comes to finding out as much as possible about your two potential employers. Do online research about each employer and talk to people who might work there or know people who work there. If you have follow-up questions about the job offer or anything else, don’t hesitate to contact them and gather the additional info you’re looking for. This will help you get the most facts about each job before making your job offer selection. 

Think About the Future
It’s natural to get caught up in the immediate excitement of accepting a job offer. But don’t forget to pause and think about how the job you accept will benefit you down the road. Is there room for advancement? Does the employer offer job shadowing, cross-training or mentoring opportunities? Do they provide professional and personal development training? If growing in your career is important to you, make sure your next job you choose can help make that happen.
