How to choose between 2 job offers?

Congratulations! You have two job offers. How do you choose between them?

First of all, be very Glad that you have two job offers in the current market. Just landing one Job is hard enough, let alone 2. But just how should you choose which one to take? The following are some key considerations:

1) your hiring manager – this person will likely make the greatest impact on your career. If he is a leader, he will spill over lots of good practices you can learn from. He will groom you, give you opportunities and bring you to places if he progresses in his career. So find out what your hiring manager is like.

2) what is the size of the company? A larger one will probably offer more progression for your career. It will also offer more learning opportunities. But a small one is also where you can be part of the growth and learn in that process. Sometimes, it may be better to be a “small fish in a big pond”. Other times, it may be better to be “a big fish in a small pond”. it depends on where you currently are in your career.

3) what is the corporate culture of the company? You can find out lots about this from websites such as Glassdoor and other forums. The last thing you want is to be in a toxic culture where you hate going to work every day.

Hope this helps in your choice.
