How to evaluate a job offer

2018 | 07 | 08 1807

Any change in conditions changes the result. An axiom, known to everyone since elementary school. But in order to be satisfied with the achieved result, it is necessary to clearly realize it.

  Therefore, write down what needs to be improved by changing the work. And not only within the framework of the workspace, but also beyond. For example:

  • faster to get to work and back,
  • have dinner at home
  • to go to gym,
  • ride around the country.

  There are many options, you can not be shy. Arrange in order of priority.

  The first three points, this is something that you absolutely can not sacrifice in evaluating the proposal.

  The following are where you can compromise on the discussion.

  The rest are desirable, but not fundamentally important. Now you can begin to evaluate the new work.

   There are several schemes for the evaluation of proposals.

 1. "Intuitive"

   You were in the office, saw the faces of the employees, felt the atmosphere. Even if you did not pay attention to it immediately, now, with your eyes closed, return to the memories and the sensations will become brighter. Imagine the usual morning, only after morning coffee, you go outside and drive to a new job. Try to see your workplace, how the work day goes, how to spend a break. Listen to the mood. This will be an estimate. If inside is joy, maybe this is what you want? If you like everything, and your intuition still hasn't let you down, maybe it makes sense to trust her again? Well, if not everything is so rosy, try to evaluate the proposal differently.

 2. "Rational"

   In two columns we write out the answers (yes / no) to simple questions about the current work and the received proposal:

  • - wage;
  • - increasing the level of professionalism;
  • - career growth;
  • - team;
  • - working conditions;
  • - time on the road;

   Add all aspects from the list (see above) that are important to you. Calculate the number of "yes" and "no", or, if it is more convenient, to put estimates on a five-point scale, we consider the points. The picture will be quite transparent.

 3. "Expert"

   And in order to finally resolve doubts, we ask questions to our relatives, friends, everyone whose opinion is authoritative for us. As a rule, in such conversations there are moments that have fallen out of sight. And they sometimes have a major impact on the evaluation of the proposal.

   Now add up the preliminary data and see if it matches your intuitive decision.

   After a superficial assessment proceed to a more balanced. Answer the most honest questions about yourself:

- Do I exactly meet the requirements for this job? Do I want this? Do I have enough experience, knowledge and perseverance for this offer?

- What is my personal benefit from changing jobs? This is not about family and relatives, but about you personally.

- How interesting is my future leader, the future team? Is corporate style and culture acceptable to me? If you do not fit in, you will very quickly get tired of the constant feeling of discomfort and, at the end of the ends, start searching for other offers.

   And do not forget, you want to increase your salary and improve your life, just as employers want to find a cheap workaholic. Therefore, an assessment of a job offer is needed only after you have discussed salary, job duties, social package and other nuances. When you get to work, it will be too late.

   Just in case, you should always have a pre-arranged version of a polite refusal. After all, after some time, this company may become one of your customers or a customer. Try to refuse without blowing up the bridges.
