This question comes up more often than not. A person will launch their job search and go through the interview process with another company. If all goes well they receive a job offer, accept the offer, and resign from their current role. Sounds great, right?Unfortunately, when you decide to accept a new job opportunity and give your resignation your current employer may present you with a counter offer. Maybe they offer you a promotion or a raise to stay at the company. Should you take the counter offer?
Interviews are tough and there are plenty of things you can do to better your chances of success. This is a list of “Do Not’s” for you to avoid as you consider your next career move. Here are 30 ways to ruin an interview in 30 seconds.
So you’ve decided it’s time to look for a new job. However, your resume doesn’t make you look like a great candidate on paper. In fact, it’s a bit lackluster overall. You think to yourself, “if only I changed a few things I would look like an all-star candidate that every company would want to interview.” Now most people will tell you never to lie on your resume and I am not saying you should ever lie…but what about reframing your story to beef up the resume?
More often than not, companies will make a “bad hire” that can lead to a haunting experience, leaving both parties with a bad taste. What was first thought to be a good idea, can quickly turn sour and eventually dissolve, resulting in starting from scratch as you look to hire again. Yes, bad hires happen sometimes and it’s not to say it is any one person’s fault, but there are ways to prevent it from becoming routine. Your sales team is critical to your company’s growth and sustainability. Hiring salespeople is not something you want to leave to chance.
Every company is looking to grow. They are looking to grow customers, territories, products and services, their own team, and most importantly revenue. Every business is looking to grow sales revenue and are typically faced with the same questions and challenges as most other companies which are…“How do we grow, and how do we sustain our growth?”
Congratulations, you’re ready to make your next hire. You’ve spent the hours recruiting, sourcing, interviewing, and are ready to move to final steps. You and your team have agreed on the top candidate. After performing your reference and background checks you are ready to extend your offer.Once the candidate verbally accepts, set their expectations that they will be receiving the offer letter (via email or mail).
As a hiring manager, there’s nothing more frustrating and disappointing than having a candidate in final stages of the interview process decline you job offer. What’s more frustrating is not understanding WHY this person turned down the offer. You spent the time and money to find this candidate. You thought you took the necessary steps to gain the candidate’s interest and commitment level. You were excited about this candidate, and they did everything right. You thought you were both on the same page, so how come the candidate did the opposite of everything they were saying?
