Factors To Consider Before Accepting A Job Offer


So many a time people had accepted job offers for the wrong reasons. Some had managed to adjust in the long wrong while some had failed and had seen themselves quitting. Well here are some of the things to consider before accepting a job offer.

Things you will sacrifice

Before  accepting  the offer you should really consider the things you would have to sacrifice by accepting the offer. In this case, different companies have different benefits and it may not be surprising that some of the benefits you were having from your current job may not be offered at the new company you are being offered a place.

The Environment

Meeting new people for the first time is always an uneasy  experience . Before accepting a job offer one should at least ask for a day or two to visit the work premises and have a chit chat with the people he/she is going to work with. This, however, will give you time to know the kind of people you are going to spend 8 hours of a normal working day with.

Job Security and Stability

No new job is ever 100% secure. Particularly in countries which have an unstable economy, some people had seen themselves becoming redundant a few months after being sworn in. before taking a job offer consider your security at the passion you are being offered. Check the company’s profile on the stock exchange market, its profits and trends in terms of employee layoff.

Your lifestyle

The lifestyle we all lead or desire to lead is nurtured by society. However, in some cases, the job position one holds contributes to the lifestyle he/she leads. If you are one kind of a person who wants to have a high lifestyle do not accept a law job that will expose you to a low lifestyle for you will always be an uncontested employee.


We all take up a job for what we can get from there. Before taking up the job consider what you will benefit from the job. Consider what the organisation is ready to give you as benefits for example accommodation, transport, airtime among others. All these benefits will complement your take-home or paycheck. If this benefit satisfies your personal interests then taking the job is not a bad thing to do after all.


If you are a millennial, you are well known for being opportunist thus before taking up the offer you need to consider the opportunities that are available for you either learning and development or career development or even opportunities for starting your own company.
