Comparing Job Offers

When you receive a job offer, it's important to take the time to carefully evaluate its details so you are making an educated decision to accept, or to reject, the proposal. The last thing you want to do is to make a hasty decision that you will regret later on.

Consider the entire compensation package - salary, benefits, perks, work environment -not just your paycheck. Weigh the pros and cons and take some time to mull it over. It is perfectly acceptable to ask the employer for some time to make your decision. Employers often use checklists to help organize their assessments of applicants and to help rank them. Applicants should consider using the same method in order to make the best decision possible when choosing new positions.

To help in this investigation of offers, job seekers may find these simple checklists below useful when conducting their comparisons. Feel free to add to the checklist as you discover items that are important to you.
