Four Signs You Should Turn Down a Job Offer
According to a new survey by Bankrate, more than half of people in the U.S. plan to look for a new job in the next 12 months. But that doesn’t mean you should take the first offer you get. Here are four signs you should TURN DOWN a job offer.
1. It’s a revolving door. When you interview, try to find out why the position is open and for how long. If you get the feeling the role is a revolving door, it might mean the work sucks or the boss is a challenge to work with.
2. They’re too rigid. If your job can easily be done remotely and the company requires you to be in the office at all times, especially after the past year and a half, it may be a sign of an inflexible culture.
3. There’s no clear growth path. A survey by Monster found that the top two reasons people are looking for new jobs are burnout and lack of job growth or opportunities. If the job you’re interviewing for doesn’t have an upward trajectory . . . and that’s something you want . . . it might be worth passing.
4. They pressure you. If you get a job offer and they pressure you to accept it on the spot or within a day, be warned. Don’t be afraid to ask for more time to think about your options before committing.
