After a long and grueling job search process, you finally get some traction and receive a job offer. At last!. You want to scream, "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. Think about it: after all of your efforts to search, apply, research and answer interview questions, and obtain the perfect job, you don't want to waste your valuable time on the wrong position. That's why we always recommend that you get a few answers before officially accepting the job Here are a few questions to ask 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.If you are working part-time for a company, consider more than the season you’re prepared to work. Is this a company you could see yourself coming back to after graduation? If not, is it at least a job that you could come back to over school breaks? Asking these questions enables you to set expectations for both yourself and your managers. Just as you would love the job security every summer or after graduation, your employer would love the security of having a hard-working, motivated employee season after season – or for the foreseeable future.
