You worked so hard and now employers really want you. However, you did not get one but several job offers and you like something from each of these offers. There is no right formula to tell you which one to select, as this is your own decision. The reality is that you will have to select the offer that makes you happy. Unfortunately, sometimes that selection may not necessarily be the one that pays the most.
You are looking to be in a place where you can develop all your talents, a place where you would like to wake up every morning to go to and feel the excitement of what you are going to create, produce, deliver, or whatever your trade is. However, you may not have the answer right now on top of your head, unless you go through “soul vs. facts” assessment.
This time, I am going to go back to a prior chart information that I gave you in one of my posts. It is a chart that will help you to make that decision. Remember that you do not accept a job offer for a couple of weeks, it is for quite a longer time, therefore, you can use every piece of help to make it right for you. So, here is the chart again. Put your heart into it and if it’s money what you need, or something to make you happy, well, you will make that call. Good luck to you!
Develop a 7 column chart with this information: Employer, Salary, Commute, Benefits, Perks, Job Makes me Happy and Score. Make sure you give a Score to each offer from 1-10, (10 will be your best score)
