Finding a new job is stressful no matter what situation you’re in, from being laid off to willingly leaving your current position. After submitting numerous applications, you finally receive your offer—but is it a good fit? Don’t just take the first offer you come across. Take your time to evaluate to make sure it’s the right career move for you.
Learning to evaluate a job offer correctly is the best way to keep you from looking for another job shortly after. Employers are also incentivized to find the right fit because hiring and training are expensive. Millennials are especially known for leaving jobs frequently, but it may not be for the reason you think.
Forty-three percent of millennials plan to leave their job within the next year so learning how to effectively evaluate a job offer may help ensure their new position is the right one. Salary is important but there are many other factors to consider before accepting or declining. Culture, commute and work-life balance are examples of things that may not be outlined in your offer letter.
This infographic from Self Lender highlights 14 job factors that everyone—but especially millennials—need to consider before saying “yes.” Since millennials are no longer the newbies in the workforce, they’re most likely searching for positions that will advance their careers or possibly put them on a different path.
