Are you about to accept a job offer? You might want to ask yourself some questions before you take this new job. Making the right decision will impact your career now and in the future. Here are the most critical questions you need to consider before accepting that job.
Is This How I Want to Spend My Time?
Do you see yourself doing this job and enjoying it? Would there be something you’d rather do? If you can’t answer that you would enjoy the job, you may start on the wrong foot.
Is the Company’s Organization Valuable to Me and My Beliefs?
Have you evaluated the company’s mission and vision? Do they fit your specific values? If they do not, it might not be a good professional match. But if they do, it could be a great opportunity.
Will I Like Working with This Team?
Were you able to meet others you’d be working with? If so, did you find them enjoyable, or do you have concerns? You need to be comfortable with your coworkers and management to have satisfaction in the job.
Was I Treated Well During the Interview Process?
Were there any red flags during the interview that you might have brushed off at the time? Maybe the interviewer was late without any explanation. Maybe they rescheduled several times or were inflexible with your schedule.
Will I have The Tools to Succeed?
Did you ask about the software and office setup during the interview to see if it matched the job expectations? Do you think the company will provide you with the necessary tools to succeed?
Do Others Like to Work Here?
What was the general vibe from others in the office? Do they like their jobs or the company? One great question to ask in an interview is, “what’s your favorite part about working here?”
What New Skills Will I learn?
There is no point in accepting a new job if you feel like you’ll be stuck without learning anything new. Yes, they want to hire you because you’re an expert, but there should also be things they can teach you professionally.
