Technology Companies Hit the Road in Search of Talent First Stop… the Windy City How do I Create and Send an Email Cover Letter with my Resume?
Oct 30

Well, you did it—congratulations, they’ve just offered you a job!

Strange as it may sound, you need to evaluate that job offer carefully to make certain that it’s one you want to accept. Here are a few things you need to consider:

The job itself:  Will you be proud to say that you work for this company? Does the work you will be doing interest you, and does doing it fit well with your long range career goals?

Your supervisor: Do you think you can work well with the person who to whom you will be reporting? You’ll need to feel comfortable, and you should only work for people who are prepared to help you grow in your job and your career.

The money: This includes benefits as well as salary. Is the offer for a figure you can live with—and on? What’s the potential for raises?

The company culture:  Find out as much as you can about the people with whom you’ll be working before you accept the position. Do their personalities and work styles mesh with yours? If not, is there a way around the potential conflicts?

In addition to the above, you must also consider the number of hours per week the job will require, including commuting time, and the potential for moving up within the organization. Only after you have considered all these factors should you accept the position.
