As recruiters, we speak to candidates who may be considering a new opportunity every day. Each person has their own reason for looking. We do our best to understand their motivation and needs, so that we can find a new role that fits.
The most common reasons that prompt people to seek a new opportunity, either actively or passively, include:
Some candidates may not be actively looking, but willing to see what’s out there. We have found this group of job seekers, to be most likely to drop out of the hiring-process and accept a counter offer.
In today’s candidate-short market, counter offers are rife (and a contributing factor to the Straco team going grey).
Counter offers can be flattering and tempting, especially if salary was part of the reason you were looking. However, they’re not always as good as they seem.
If you receive a counter offer, take a minute to think about why you started your job search.
Think about the bigger picture.
While a pay rise is always nice, is it addressing the core reasons for wanting to leave in the first place? Or is it just a short-term solution?
Still contemplating? Here’s 4 reasons, why you should never accept a counter offer:
At the end of the day, it’s down to you whether you decide to accept the counter offer. But our advice, is to get everything you want in writing, from your current employer.
Be professional and courteous, closing off your application with the other employer and recruiter. You never know, when you will cross paths again!
If you don’t see a role for you, still send us your CV because new opportunities arise all the time and you might just be what our client is looking for.
