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.

AI in HR: Facilitating Flexible Scheduling
In our new study "Artificial Intelligence for Recruiting Success," we discussed ways that new technology can save us time and effort while attracting a better pool of job candidates. In this article, we'll turn our attention to a tool that helps provide one of candidates' most desired job benefits, while requiring minimal time and effort on our part.   Work-life balance and the flexible schedule appear to be here to stay. Surveys show that 77% of Millennials1 and 51% of Generation Z2 prefer flexible working hours.
