Fantastic you’ve been given the golden handshake and a job offer is on the table. However you still have questions to ask before accepting a local job. Receiving a job offer is a great boost for most candidates, and generally after going through a sometimes exhaustive interview process it’s very tempting to accept the offer almost immediately. Sadly from experience because of this hasty nature we see candidates, managers, temp, etc…leaving their jobs sooner than accepted therefore below I have drawn up a long and detailed list for future applicants.
No matter what industry you may work within or status of job I believe the following is ideal for any local midlands candidate. A list of: 20 questions to ask before accepting a local job.
- Is this a long-term career move? If not, what does this position really offer me?
- If this is a short-term career move, what is the purpose of it?
- Does this position challenge my psychological capabilities?
- Am I comfortable with the tasks for which I would be responsible?
- Do I fully understand the expectations of the role?
- Will the company provide me with the necessary resources to be successful?
- Does this position utilize my full list of skills, tablets & experience?
- Will I be able to offer a valuable contribution to the local west midlands employer?
- Will I be proud to be associated with the company’s brand, product and/or services?
- Does the company culture appear to be in line with my values & techniques?
- Is the office location a comfortable distance from home or less (more) expensive?
- Have my interactions with other employees been comfortable and friendly?
- Can I envision feeling at home with the other employees socially?
- Does my direct supervisor appear to be a supportive individual or mentor
- Is the work environment conducive, is the firm financially stable?
- Will the work feel professionally satisfying, rewarding & financially beneficial?
- Financially, will this job provide me with a desirable lifestyle for me (/family)?
- Will the benefits package meet my needs in comparison to the market trend?
- Is there opportunity for future professional growth within the company?
- Are there any potential problems I can foresee in accepting this job?
Concluding factor to this blog that a number of people have asked for is: “Gut Instinct” – After you’ve weighed the important factors (this case: 20 tips ) take time to listen to what your gut Instinct is telling you. People often say this when buying a house, “you’ll feel it.” Same advice here: if you walk out of an interview and everything feels right (or wrong), pay attention to that feeling. Either way recall to yourself – I read the information on Nimble Recruitments website if we have a suitable job for you we can contact you but only with you CV, so register with Nimble Recruitment.
