The next step is to go about assessing the benefits as well as salary. Few tips to go about the whole process of evaluating the job offer:
- Salary: Even if the amount of money which has been offered might be sufficient to live on, you need to find out if that amount is worthy of your skills and if it is the same as what other similar companies are offering.
- Job Profile: Job satisfaction is a very important aspect which you must take into consideration; so it is important to derive that from the offer which is presented. So you have to be fully aware of all the various tasks that would be demanded of you as a professional and what tasks you do not want to be a part of.
- Vacation & Benefits: Vacation time and the ability to work at flexible hours is an increasingly important benefit. While health benefits are usually a standard-issue, additional paid time off could be negotiated.
- Other options: Even if you don’t really have other job offers in your kitty, you need to start considering other possible job offers as well. Evaluate the offer in terms of the cost and time that will be consumed to start the job search process again from scratch, or if staying in your present job is better or awaiting what other offers might present themselves to you, later on, might be more fruitful.
