Analyzing the Job Offer: 5 Questions to Help You Decide

Great news, you’ve received a job offer, and the pay is within your desired range. Should you jump at it without further ado? In this difficult economy and highly competitive job market, it’s understandable if you say yes. But we strongly advise you to consider other factors of the job before you commit yourself.


After all, you’re hoping for long-term employment and career advancement. That won’t happen if you’re so unhappy at work that you can’t stick it out for very long out no matter how good your wages are. Then you’ll be right back where you started, looking for work.


You wouldn’t be alone. Money is rarely the primary reason people give for the job dissatisfaction that caused them to leave. Ask yourself these 5 crucial questions when you’re deciding whether or not to accept that offer:


Will I have work/life balance? Or is this a workplace where employees are routinely expected to work 10, 12 or more hours a day, leaving no time for family or social activities?

Will I have opportunities to develop my skills and learn new ones? Or will I be permanently boxed into the role they’re hiring me for now, with no chance to advance my career?

Will my ideas be valued and respected? Or does this company’s management expect employees to just follow orders?

Will I be able to question how things are done and why? Or do the managers insist that the old ways are the right ways?

Do I agree with the company’s mission and values? Or will I have trouble fitting into this particular corporate culture?


At Integrity Staffing Solutions, we’ve seen time and time again that these are the factors that make the difference between a happy, productive, upwardly mobile employee and one who is going nowhere, except back onto the job market. That’s why our own corporate vision is to support our associates’ career and personal growth. We help them succeed because then they make our company succeed.


You deserve to get more than a paycheck from your job. By asking the right questions, you can make sure you’re in the right environment for continued success.

Now Is the Time to Expand Your Skillsets
  Why should you do it now? Several reasons.   First, the obvious one: the sooner you acquire valuable skills, the sooner you can be making more money.   Second, there's a major skills shortage in the job market right now. Employers simply can't find enough workers for their open jobs. It's caused by a number of social factors, including: The Baby Boomer generation leaving the workforce and not enough people in later generations to fill all the gaps The cost of a college degree skyrocketing out of reach for the vast majority of the population The speed with which businesses have transformed their operations in the digital world   Last but not least, Integrity associates now have access to Next Step U (in partnership with leading online education institution, Penn Foster) for completely free educational programs. You've got nothing to lose, and a lot to gain!   What skills are in the highest demand by employers? You may have heard that the shortages are mostly...

Teleworking for COVID-19 and Beyond
  The current pandemic didn't start this trend, but it has definitely accelerated it. Even before COVID-19 came on the horizon, Gallup research showed that 43% of U.S. employees work remotely some or all of the time. And some predictions have the traditional 9-to-5 job being pretty much history by 2030.   Now, thousands of businesses all over the world — beginning with the financial centers in Shanghai and Hong Kong — have practically shuttered their physical offices and converted to the new virtual reality of remote workers.   Here's how to join what Time Magazine calls the "World's Largest Work-from-Home Experiment" with minimal friction and maximum productivity.
