If you are a job seeker who has numerous job offers, you may not be feeling so fortunate when it’s time to make a choice. Choosing can be a tedious task, here are tips that will help you make a good decision:
Learn About the Company
You may have already done a bit of research on the company before your interview. Before you can weigh the options you should know about
- the job
- the organization
- the offer details
Evaluate Your Priorities
Make a list of what you’re looking for in
- a company
- a job
- a career
After you make this list, see how each offer is able to satisfy your needs and desires.
What are your professional goals?
Organizing your priorities on paper usually helps you visualize the upcoming years at your first job.
What will make you happy?
If the thought of joining a company and taking up the job is not exciting you then it is not even worth considering.
Think About It
Lots of companies request you to put together a decision about an offer within a week. On the other hand, offers are often considered conditional, meaning it is reliant upon your specific conditions. Reflect on asking companies for extensions, in particular if you’re not going to graduate in the forthcoming weeks. Asking for an extension gives you time to cautiously weigh up the offer as well as bargain the terms of the offer. When you request for an extension, make sure it’s practical. You don’t want to make the company think you’re trying to take advantage of their generosity.
