After a long and grueling job search process, you finally get some traction. You get some interest and, finally, the long search finally comes to fruition and you’ve got a job offer at last! You want to scream a resounding, "YES!" when they ask whether or not you'd like to accept the job they offered. But, as great as the position may seem, you should make sure you know exactly what it is you're getting into. Do not -- we repeat DO NOT -- jump on the first opportunity you are offered simply because it's the first opportunity you were offered. Think about it: after all of your exhausting efforts to search, apply for and obtain the perfect job, you don't want to waste your valuable time on the wrong position. This will just waste your time and land you back in job search more before you know it.That's why we always recommend that, before you accept any job you are offered, there are some critical questions you should get the answers to. Ask the following questions before signing on the dotted line to accept an employment offer:Your job description may say one thing but the reality of your day-to-day may differ. Make sure you know what the job will entail by asking what a day on the job is expected to look like. Go into the job knowing what tasks will be expected of you each day so that you’re prepared to fulfill them and to make sure it’s really the job you signed up for.
