Career Advice

Former recruitment agency experts answer employment questions, candidly suggesting how to negotiate your salary, find a really good job, handle phone interviews, and more.

Sage advice like this is priceless.



Handling counteroffers is tricky.

Maybe you've been approached by a recruiter about a new position, or perhaps you have been checking out online job boards for more interesting or lucrative positions. You get an offer and tell you employer about and now comes the question: Will your current employer seek to keep you? 

Tips on what to do when there is a counter offer:

What should you do? Ask yourself a few questions to help clarify the situation...

Why are they offering you this counter offer? Is it because your departure will come at a bad time and they want you to stay on until they can find someone else and thus have your departure be on thier terms?

How is the work like? A slightly better salary or fancy new title will quickly lose its lustre if you the job is boring or you don;t like your coworkers or if you're stuck in a rut in your current job.

What's the future look like? Have you asked for a justifiable raise or promotion and were tuned down? A good employer promotes and fairly compensates talented people like you on a consistent basis, not just when they're forced to.
