Job Offer

The first time you receive a job offer will often be a verbal offer and is likely to be subject to the making of references and perhaps even a medical examination. So I never said to accept a job offer, or give up your current job until you have received a formal offer in writing to the new position. Sometimes after an interview, employers try to shorten the process by asking you if you accept the job there and then. It’s flattering and gratifying to know that they like enough to make an offer, but be careful, or you may find yourself stuck without a job. You must be careful in your answer and if you are interested say “I would accept, but please confirm your offer in writing” and then confirm with you. A formal job offer should include all these points:? job title? pay? benefits? normal working hours? workplace? holiday entitlement? period of notice if something is not covered, you need to know what you will not be able to take its decision without this information. And do not wait until you start working to raise outstanding inquiries.

It will be too late to discuss or negotiate anything then. Check your job offer letter carefully against what is understood to offer, and do not sign the acceptance letter unless you are fully satisfied with it. You still have time to ask questions. As the letter of offer of work constitutes the basis of his new contract, has to be sure. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Jeff Gennette.
