How to objectively evaluate a job offer
After sending out endless applications, receiving a job offer can feel exhilarating! But then anxiety may set in as you ask yourself, is this really the right job for me?
At this point, it’s time to take a step back, and reflect on two key questions:
- Could I gain valuable experience in this industry, function or field?
- Can I see myself committing to this job for at least 12 months?
There’s much to consider when answering these questions and it’s important to take a holistic approach. No job is perfect, and you may need to make some trade-offs to decide which offer is right for you.
Review each of the factors in the visual and reflect on the questions. Remember, it’s unlikely that one job will tick all the boxes. After weighing up all the factors, could it be the right opportunity for you?
