3 Things To Consider Before Accepting That Job Offer

You finally got a job offer…

Congratulations! All your efforts paid off.

However, instead of accepting immediately, take a few days to consider these three factors.

1. The People & Culture

Some people might be wondering why this is the first on the list but you are going to be spending 8 or more hours with the people you work with so make this a top priority. Ask questions about your line manager, your teammates, and your co-workers. Check them out on LinkedIn too.

A company culture that promotes employees’ happiness means there will be low turnover, which means performance and productivity will improve. Employees shouldn’t dread the workplace.

2. Career Development/Growth Opportunities

Discuss your career path with the hiring manager. Talk about what you are passionate about and ask if there are opportunities for growth and development.

3. Compensation & Benefits

No matter how much you love what you do, compensation is still a huge factor to consider. You need to know your net salary (take-home pay). Also, ask about the overall benefits package. Will you be getting insurance, internet, snacks or food etc.

Having a good knowledge of these and more will help you make the right decision.
