When you receive a counter offer after accepting a new job, handling the situation properly can be tricky and staying in integrity with your decisions is really important.
Here are a few tips on how to navigate this difficult decision:
- Consider the offer carefully, taking into account any long-term implications for your career. Are you making this move out of desperation with your current employer or can you see a career path with your new company that your current firm simply cannot offer?
- Respectfully inform your current employer of your decision, thanking them for their offer but remaining true to your decision.
- Follow through with your commitment to the new job, while also remaining professional with your current employer.
