How To Handle A Counter Offer
14 March 2017
When you’re looking for a new job and on the verge of accepting an offer from potential new employers, there is every chance that your current company might make you a counter offer.
It will usually involve matching the offer that your potential new company has made, in terms of wages, and maybe a bit more in the way of responsibility or title.
If your heart is set on leaving, then there’s no reason why any counter offer (no matter how good) could sway you to stay. After all, something must have made you consider leaving in the first place.
Any offers should always be handled politely and from an objective perspective. Focus on what is best for you and your career – and that doesn’t always mean more money.
