"Factors to Consider Before Accepting a Job Offer"

Before accepting a job offer you should spend some time carefully considering the exact specifications on the offer itself, and your own thoughts and reflections on your interviews and the company. Also, how your offer compares to other offers you may have already received, or expect to receive in coming days and weeks.

If you have been lucky enough to receive an offer from a top tier firm, your job offer should include many additional benefits apart from training and salary (such as gym, pension, insurance, etc).

Lower tier firms may not be able to offer you so many benefits or such a high salary, although they may be able to offer other kinds of attractive extras, such as 25 to 30 days' holiday (compared to most top firms' offers of 20 days).

Although there may be a great deal of differences between job offers, do not let things like salaries and special benefits (such as gym access) affect your decision too much. Remember that enjoying the job, liking the people you will be working with and having a good feeling for the firm you will be working for are all very important and will affect you far more than financial factors, such as an extra £1,000 a year salary.
