For IT contractors, the leap to new IT jobs occurs a little more often. How should IT consultants evaluate a new job offer before accepting? Here are a few things IT professionals should ask themselves and their IT recruiters before filling out final paperwork.
- What are the IT managers styles? What’s the corporate culture like? Can I succeed in these circumstances?
- Will I enjoy most of, if not all, the basic duties of this job? Does it speak to my passions and the skills on my resumes?
- What is the commute like? Can I handle it on a twice, daily basis?
If the answers to any of these are ‘no,’ you may have a tough road ahead of you if you take the IT job. All of these factors affect your daily life on a deep level. If it’s hard to consider them objectively, talk things through with your recruiter. They want you to love your new job, too!
