Accepting a job offer
Things to keep in mind
Congratulations, you've been offered the job! However, there are still things to consider. Are you happy with the offer? Does it align to what you were expecting? Make sure you firm up all the details in advance and start this next stage of your career on a really positive note.
Don’t make a rash decision, give the hiring manager a time frame and stick to it. Speak with your recruiter, your peers, people at home and circle back in person; no matter what the decision is.
Realistic negotiations are often part of the process.
Voice your questions to your recruiter; we are well placed to manage this with you. Often we already know if there is any room for movement on salary, vacation days etc. But be realistic; refer back to your target job requirements and why you wanted a new job in the first place.
Get everything in writing.
Make sure you read your offer details thoroughly and confirm everything via email.
This is the next chapter in your career and what you have been working toward. Convey this to the hiring manager to further underline that they have made the right decision.
