Temporary and Permanent Staffing and Work…When you need it!

A 4-Week Guide to Getting a Job, Week 4: How to Professionally Accept a Job Offer

All the connecting, searching and hard work on resumes and interview practice has paid off. The job offer is here! Is it your dream job? Does it align with your values and goals? Remember that it is challenging to get everything you want in a job, so review your list to see if this one can at least check off most of your boxes. If yes, then it’s time for the last few steps to sign on for this new exciting role and begin your next chapter! You can review pages 103-113 in the Job Search Guide we introduced in the first week to read more on how to accept a job offer.

Negotiate Terms of Employment 

In the past, it was not acceptable to request any changes or negotiate the terms of employment. Today, it is part of the closing process. Take a look at these links to get some more information on how to get what you want. 

Close the Loop with Prospective Employers 

Important to be polite and professional when declining offers. Connections and how you present in the business world are so important. Writing a letter to decline a job offer is just as important as the one you write to accept. 

Accept the Job 

Finally, you are ready to accept! Write your acceptance letter and celebrate!
