Congratulations! After handwork and dedication of sending out resumes for months you have landed the job! Now, with the job offer letter in your hands you are probably wondering about how to accept the offer letter on the spot. But not too quick! You want to make sure you follow a few steps before you accept the job offer.
If the salary seems a little on the low side due to your research online on GlassDoor and other career websites you will want to present a counter offer.
You can also do some research for salary standards in your local area by using the following website:
By negotiating your final offer you can show the company how decisive and reasonable you are. You will also feel much more confident and feel like you are in control of crafting the job that fits you.
You made it to the last stage of the interview or you only had a phone interview and then received a rejection email. What you do with this rejection email is what counts.
Thank the interviewer always for the time and send a short email that is sweet and short. You want to simply keep the door open for future discussion or future job opportunities.
Reach out to the interviewer and see why you were dispositoned and why they selected another candidate. Nine times out of ten, you will be told they selected a better qualified candidate. But if you were told that your resume is poorly written, lacking in work experience, or poor interview skills, then you know what to improve on and be ready for next time.
