Highlights from your guide to accepting a job offer

You completed the interview and they offered you the job: Congratulations! 

Before you start a new job it’s important to confirm the relevant details in advance and to negotiate a job offer that you’re completely happy with. 

Consider: is the job definitely right for you? Has the employer offered the level of compensation you expected? Have you confirmed the job offer in writing? 

Download our guide to accepting a job offer and you’ll learn the essential steps to follow. Our expert recruiters recommend you to:

  • Confirm all details in writing. Make sure you read your job offer thoroughly and confirm everything via email.
  • Take your time. Give the hiring manager a time frame and stick to it. Speak with your consultant, peers, and people at home before making a decision.
  • Be realistic about your job expectations. Refer back to your target job requirements and consider why you wanted a new job at the outset.
  • Negotiate with your potential employer. Secure the best possible job perks as well as a competitive salary.
  • Be confident that you are making the right decision. Evaluate whether you’re leaving your current role for the right reasons.
