The Offer

After sending out CVs and going to interviews, if all goes well, you will at some point be presented with a job offer – hooray! In your excitement you may be tempted to accept the offer on the spot or feel obliged to say yes. In preparation for this stage in your job search journey, we suggest you read “The offer” sections as the information provided will enable you to:

  • understand the offer from an employer’s perspective and to understand the components of compensation packages
  • evaluate job offers received in terms of monetary and non-monetary compensation
  • approach a potential employer with any concerns you may have about the compensation offer made with realistic expectations in mind and to know where to look to evaluate salary information
  • professionally accept or decline an offer of employment
  • inform and thank your referee’s
  • wrap up your job search professionally
  • and manage your transition successfully when starting your new job
