Choosing between two job offers
You spend more than 70% of your life at work, so it has to be somewhere you feel comfortable
Consider how each of the job offers you’ve received and the companies they’re at align with your core values. Perhaps you want a job that allows you to give back to the community. Maybe your goal is to work for a company with a zero waste policy. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to feel that you’re contributing to a company that sees eye to eye with you on values in at least some respects. Meaningful work is one of the most important factors in boosting employee engagement, so do yourself a favour and be proactive about choosing the right job for your value system.
Decision time: What job should I choose?
You’ve spent months on the job hunt with no luck, and then all of a sudden two job offers will come at once. So how do you decide? Take time to consider:
- Your long-term prospects at each company
- Whether the company culture resonates with you
- If the work-life balance meet your needs
