Job offers

A job offer is more than just a salary. Be ready to manage job offers with confidence.

Once interviews are completed, the hiring manager or committee will evaluate candidates and make a hiring decision. During that time, companies may conduct background checks, reference checks, and possibly a credit check or request a drug test from one or more candidates. Once they've decided on their top candidate, they will extend a job offer.

Before you accept a job offer - take time to evaluate the compensation package, consider making a counter offer, and then accept or decline the job offer in writing.
