Two Job Offers Available - Which one should you take?

Many people seek new career opportunities. For some, finding their next exciting, well-paid opportunity takes a while. For others, it takes just a few short weeks. Sometimes, it just happens that after a number of interviews, candidates receive 2 offers on the table at the same time.

Quite exciting, isn't it? Yes. You have been acknowledged by two different teams, two different companies, and possibly two different industries. But what about now? How do you know what is the right choice for you?

Here are my Top 10 Items to consider before saying "Yes" to a particular Job Offer:

  1. Salary and benefits: Consider the Total Compensation package and whether it meets your financial needs. This includes your Salary, Short-Term Incentives, Long-Term Incentives, Vacation Days, 401K, Stocks, Shares, Health Insurance, and other benefits you may enjoy while giving your time and talents to the prospective employer.

  2. Location & Building Amenities: Think about the location of the job and whether it is convenient for your lifestyle. Often, there are gyms on site, walking paths, and daycare centers within walking distance of the building location.

  3. Job duties and responsibilities: Make sure the job aligns with your interests and skills.

  4. Growth opportunities: Consider if the company or organization offers advancement and professional development opportunities.

  5. Work-life balance: Think about the work schedule and culture of the organization, to ensure it aligns with your personal life goals.

  6. Company culture and values: Research the company's mission, values, and culture, to ensure they align with your own.

  7. Industry: Research the industry and its trends, to understand the job's long-term prospects.

  8. Career progression: Look at the potential career path and opportunities for growth and advancement.

  9. Company stability: Research the company's financial stability, to ensure it has a solid future and the job has a good chance of remaining secure.

  10. Commute: Consider how long and how you will get to work and the cost of transportation.


Now that you have reviewed all of the above, make your list. Compare the two roles and see which one speaks to you. Close your eyes, and feel your heart. Most likely your heart and intuition know the answer.

If not, try to recall what aspect is most important to you today.

You are more inclined to take one offer versus the other.

Most people already know, even though they overanalyze it over and over again. Something about one is more appealing than the other.

Just ask yourself what that is and make the choice. Make the choice to win!
