How to accept a job offer

A new job is one step closer to helping you realize your dreams

When you are excited, you may feel the need to accept the job right away. Resist the temptation and take time to think. Ask yourself and potential employers questions to make sure this job is right for you. Then, accept the offer via phone or email.


If you think it is reasonable, accept the salary

Ask yourself whether the salary is suitable for the area where you live, your personal budget, and the experience you have at work. You can check the salary guide online, talk to a mentor, or investigate the salary that the company usually pays employees for your position to determine whether the salary is appropriate. If you think the offer is unreasonable, you can try to negotiate the salary.

If you are not satisfied with the initial offer, you can negotiate a salary. If you have completed your research and feel that this proposal is not enough, then you can try to negotiate a salary that will make you happier. Negotiating salary is not uncommon, so don't be ashamed to do it. Think of a number that you think is realistic. Then, contact your potential employers by phone, email or in person and tell them what your ideal salary is. Remember, they may say that they reject the offer. If they do, please take some time to make a counter-offer or prepare a counter-offer. Explain to them why you are a valuable employee and why your ideal salary is reasonable. Tell potential employers your true interest in work. If the final answer is no, don't take a defensive position.

Ask about the benefits.

Benefits should consider salary. Benefits include important things, such as healthcare, but it also includes more trivial things. Consider whether your company has a gym, fitness plan, tuition reimbursement, and flexible working hours. When you negotiate salary, you can negotiate for your benefit. You should research what kind of benefits the person in your position has. If possible, look at what kind of benefits the company's competitors provide.

Ask about holidays.

You shouldn't ask to go on vacation right away, but you can ask what the vacation plan looks like. Consider how much vacation you need to visit family or not to go out at work. If the offer is less than expected, you can try to negotiate. Research the typical vacation time. What kind of vacation is for people with your position and experience level? Think of a reasonable vacation time. If you are negotiating for wages and benefits, set aside this time now.

Accept the telephone offer first.

You can get the job directly over the phone. If not, you may be asked to call back. It is best to ask the hiring manager to interview you. You can go ahead and let them know that you intend to accept the offer, or answer the questions before accepting it. Do not leave a voice message indicating that you have accepted the job. If the hiring manager is not there, leave a voice message indicating that you want to talk to them about job requirements.

Express your gratitude.

It is important to express gratitude for the opportunity. Let them know how excited or excited you are to get this position. If you are not ready to say "yes" on the phone, expressing gratitude is vague enough to let them know that you are interested in not making promises until the question is answered.

Request a written letter.

Once you have answered all the questions, request that the details of this conversation be sent to you in writing. Ask them to write down the salary, benefits, start and start dates discussed during the phone call. This does not let your potential employers know that you do not trust them. This is just a way to protect yourself in case employers break their promises.

Ask for the start date.

It is especially important to know this. If you currently have a job, you need to be notified. If the appointment date does not suit you, you can request a later start date. However, don't push too much.

Clarify any problems you may have

Because it is sometimes difficult to recall every detail of your work before you start working, you may need to ask questions about your future work. These questions can include, but are not limited to: questions about supervisors and/or who you will report to. If you accept work qualifications and/or visa requirements for overseas work.

Notify any contacts with scheduling conflicts. This may not apply, but if there is a conflict, it is best to let them know. You don't want to surprise them after you start work. Be sure to remind your contact of any dates when you cannot work, because you have already arranged some things before you accept the position. For example, if you agree to go to your grandfather’s 80th birthday two weeks after your start date, tell your liaison that you cannot work because of conflicting previous plans.

Read the email.

Make sure your email is well written and proofread for spelling and grammatical errors. Even if you have already got the job, you still have to make sure that all your correspondence is professional. Due to some grammatical errors, they may not withdraw this proposal, but it may be embarrassing.
