You have frustrations with your IT job, the company or the IT manager that you work for. Ultimately, you decide that you’re better in a different environment so you begin contacting IT recruiting companies to find your next opportunity. IT recruiters set you up with technical job interviews and you land a position that meets your skills and requirements.
When you give your notice, your IT manager comes back with a substantial counter offer to try to keep you from leaving. Do you keep it or leave your IT job? It’s a tough decision, but think about the following:
1) If you stay, management will always know that you were on the look out for other IT jobs.
2) If you stay, you’ll likely have a bulls-eye on your back as the company will know you were willing to break your loyalty and leave.
3) There was a reason why you contacted IT staffing companies in the first place. There was a reason why you accepted to go on IT job interviews from various technical recruiters. There was a reason why you wanted to leave. Unless it was purely financial, those reasons aren’t likely to change.
