Factor 1: Why did you want the job?
Initially, there were a number of reasons that motivated you to start the job search. Remember what your priorities were and compare them with what the new company is offering you. Everyone has their own priorities and only you know what you really want in your working life.
Factor 2: Professional plans
You will not always be in the position you are in now and it is very likely that in a few years you will want to continue to improve yourself and take on new challenges. It is advisable to know what development opportunities a company offers you, if you have the possibility of continuing to grow or, on the contrary, if it is very easy to reach an insurmountable ceiling.
Factor 3: Salary
Although it is not always the main motivation, the salary has a great weight to take the big step. You should already have in mind what is the minimum amount for which you could acquire the job, which should be able to cover your fixed expenses. It is advisable that you see an improvement in the economic benefits you currently have, taking into account the other advantages it can bring in terms of benefits and bonuses.
Factor 4: Working conditions
If everything else is clear to you, be sure to review in detail the working conditions, type of contract, duration and objectives proposed in the position.
If after analyzing all these factors and weighing the pros and cons, your answer is yes and you want to accept the job offer, we invite you to follow these steps to do it the right way.
