Whether you’re between jobs or looking to take the next step in your career, getting multiple job offers may seem like an absolute blessing—especially if your job search has been fruitless up to this point. And while multiple job offers is always better than none, it’s common for prospective employees to feel “paralysis by analysis,” especially if two or more offers are equally promising. In some cases, workers may even lose out on the offers they worked so hard to obtain due to taking too long to decide.
It’s important to begin prioritizing jobs and ranking your interest in each one as you apply and interview. Although you likely won’t get offers from every company you interview with, it’s better to be prepared and ready to act quickly if you get multiple offers around the same time. A quick and decisive “yes” to the hiring manager at the company at the top of your job board not only ensures that you won’t be passed up for another candidate, it will also help set the tone for your entire tenure there.
At TA Staffing, we recommend that job seekers with multiple offers take the following steps to ensure that they commit to the right position and the right company:
These steps should always be weighed alongside more common pros and cons for jobs, such as pay, benefits, commute time, and perks. But in many cases, the obvious job perks aren’t what attract and keep employees in positions—it’s the opportunities for self-improvement, personal and professional networking, and career-advancement that keep employees engaged in their work and motivated.
