What To Do When You Have Two Job Offers But You Cannot Make Up Your Mind

It’s another thing when you are job hunting and you are not being successful. Then again, however, it’s much more frustrating to be torn between two job offers. It’s like one minute you are praying to God to give you a job and the next minute your cup is overflowing with blessings you don’t even know which one to choose.

Now it’s not about just looking at who has the bigger cheque to determine where you will be headed. It takes more than who the highest bidder is.

Think About Your Future

This is the time to think about your future thoroughly. Ask yourself where you want to be in 5 years. Do you want to be working where you are now? Do you want to have attained a particular position by then, or you want to break away and form your own company but you still need the chance to learn a couple more things before that happens. Weigh both options and note down the one that will help you achieve both your short-term and long-term plan.

Compare salary and benefits

Primarily the purpose of working is to earn a good living so that you can have a comfortable life. Then again what you should bear in mind is that some companies may pay less but they have benefits, packages and allowances that probably other companies that pay more may not have. So before you jump at that check, take your time and weigh both options of salary and benefits first before you make your decision.

Ask for Advice

It’s going to get overwhelming at some point. Talk to your parents, older siblings, mentor and your friends. You can even talk to people in similar fields who can walk you through what the progression of each job is. It can help you project into the future to be sure whether that kind of growth will work for you depending on what your goals are. No one said you had to make the decision on your own. Share it with people you look up to and those you know will give you some solid advice.

Is the distance from home worth it?

Whether you are picking a trotro or an uber or you are driving, you should be able to determine if the journey from your home to your place of work is worth it every single day. If it is not going to help you then what is the point spending all the money to go all the way there for nothing.

Trust your instincts

At the end of the day, the final decision lies with you. If your gut tells you that is what you need to do then do it. Don’t overthink it. Besides you are still young and at the point where making mistakes are not really considered as mistakes but stepping stones to higher heights. If you follow your gut and you got it wrong learn from it and get better.
