5 Things You Need to Consider Before Saying “Yes” to The Job Offer

December 8th, 2017

Congratulations! You have a formal job offer in hand. But wait…before you say “yes,” there are a few factors to consider to ensure it’s really the best fit for you. After all, you’ll be spending most of your waking hours at work; so, there’s a lot of stake.

To help you in your decision-making process, here’s a look at five areas to think about:

The culture

Do you feel comfortable with the culture? Does the work environment and the leadership style fit your personality? Do you envision yourself getting along well with the prospective colleagues you’ve met so far?

While it’s hard to know exactly what working there is like until you’re in the job, you should have a sense as to your comfort level with it. Don’t hold back just because you want the job; if you’re not a good fit for the culture, it will impact your performance and job satisfaction.

The salary

If you’ve been unemployed for a while, you might be willing to accept less than what you’re worth. But keep in mind, this can impact your income not only now, but for years to come. If, down the road, you start looking for a new job, prospective employers will likely want to know your salary history. And if they see a sharp drop, it will make them wonder and can have a negative effect on future offers.

The commute

During the interview process, the commute wasn’t a big deal. But now that you’re potentially going to be driving there every day during the week, how doable is it, really? If you’re not sure, do a test run. Drive to the company during rush hour in the morning and afternoon so you can get an accurate sense of how long it will take – and how frustrating it could potentially be.

The stress level

Sure, you want a job with more challenges and opportunities. But are you prepared for the increase in stress it will bring? Some people are; others aren’t. And the last thing you want to do is accept a position you wind up hating because you’re constantly stressed and strained. Look realistically at what will be expected of you and whether you will be able to handle it.

The advancement opportunities

A good job should help you learn, grow and even act as a steppingstone to newer and better opportunities in the future. That’s why you’ll want to evaluate this offer with that in mind. In other words, how will you as a professional – and your career in the long run – benefit by taking this position?
