What do you do about conflicting job offers?

What makes you decide to go with a job when you have two offers?

Does commuting, a *gut* instinct, small boutique or multinational?


How do you decide?

Re: What do you do about conflicting job offers?

Avoid small boutiques at any cost if you don't want to get exploited. I would say something leaning towards a multinational but not quite a multinational yet is your best bet.

If i have a choice between 2 identical jobs i would simply choose the best geographically. But there is no such thing as 2 exactly identical jobs.

When I said that, I was mainly thinking about commuting.

The nearer the work place, the more I can sleep in the morning

Every situation is different. I don't think any criteria apply generally.

You have to measure all pros and cons, make a decision, and never look back. Like everything else in life

Agreed. If the 2 jobs aren't very similar it won't be that simple though ofc.

Re: What do you do about conflicting job offers?

Better money and Better Work Environment. If Job A Provides you both then there is no choice, but if A Job provides a better payment and has a worse Work Environment i would choose a Job that slightly pays less and has a better Work Environment. To me a lot depends upon the Management style, If i dont like them i quit.

Re: What do you do about conflicting job offers?

So many factors would affect on this. What you get to do, how much you get paid, where the job is located in, how secure the job is, etc.

I could accept smaller pay if I could do something I really love. If such a job would be offered, I'd probably take it even if there would be a more secure job available. The possibility for a career in something you really love would be worth it, as long as you can make a living from it and it's a realistic aim.

Secondarily I'd take a job where I want to live despite smaller paycheck, as long as you can have a decent standard of living there. What pleasure do you get if you earn well in a place you don't enjoy living in? Yeah, you can travel but it'd be just few times in a year and most of the time you'd be in that shit place. Of course, another thing is if you earn fuckloads of money and can retire early in some nice place and start doing what you've always wanted to do.

Those would be my priorities now, chase you realistic dreams. But ten years from now, possibly in less inspiring job in whatever city you can just get a job, maybe with wife and kids, I can't say I could anymore chase dreams but be forced to settle down and try to make a good living for the family.
