Job Search Tips Relating to Offers


Accepting an Offer

Accepting an Offer

Once you have received an offer, do not postpone letting the hiring authority know your decision for more than one day. When the candidate asks for a delay the employer could conclude that either the candidate is not very decisive or that the candidate is going to use the offer to leverage another opportunity. I've known hiring managers that rescinded an offer on the spot when the candidate did not appear decisive in their acceptance.

What and When to Negotiate

What and When to Negotiate

You can’t accept a job offer you don't have. There will be times when you expect an offer and it doesn’t happen. You are going to hear momentary lies like, "We really want to hire you. You’ll hear from us in a day or so.” Don't celebrate anything at this point. Don't believe anything until you have the offer in hand.

How to Refuse an Offer

How to Refuse an Offer

If you get an offer that you don't think you're going to take, it still may not hurt to hear the company out. If you are absolutely certain that you're not going except this job, it is best to tell the prospective employer within a reasonably short period of time. Also, I recommend calling the hiring authority personally to say how much you appreciate the offer, but at this time you're not in a position to accept it.

Negotiating For New Professionals

Negotiating For New Professionals

Understand this reality: for the vast majority of jobs offered to new graduates, there is going to be little room for "negotiation." The truth is that companies are much more negotiable for someone who brings proven experience that the company does not currently have. For the most part, hiring authorities hiring inexperienced new graduates envision every candidate almost equally. They may like you better than the other candidates, but most likely there isn't a lot of material difference between you and the next candidate.

So, You Want How Much Money? Oh My!

A recent college poll found that 77% of the college graduates expect to be millionaires. Oh, my!

Salary negotiations are always difficult no matter what level of position you are seeking. Until you reach the 20 year experience level, in one particular profession, you are never going to be quite sure exactly what you are worth. Even then, studies show that money is the fourth or fifth “motivator” for professionals.
