This is the fourth article I’ve written in a loosely connected series about taking a new career path, the questions you should ask yourself, and how to avoid making mistakes along the way. This latest article is about what to do after you’ve received a job offer. Employers will anticipate that you’ll need 24-48 hours to discuss the offer with your family, and in that time there are some items you’ll want to check off your list.
Obviously, this doesn’t apply to everyone. If you’re offered the job you want at the salary you want and everything seems lined up perfectly, maybe you don’t need 24-48 hours. But sometimes you don’t want to take a job just for the money, or you might end up turning down the offer.
I got some advice from an expert on Ashford University’s Career and Alumni Services team, and you can read it on Forward Thinking.
