Getting an offer is typically the most difficult part of the job search, particularly for senior executives. However, it is by no means the last move. Before accepting a high-ranking job, it's important to study the terms of the offer and understand what you're committing to when you accept. Here are some fundamentals to consider.
What should I do? It's a big deal when you get a call or an email saying you've been given a senior job. This is your opportunity to express appreciation while still buying time to negotiate.
What to worry about... Examine not only the pay, but also the perks, such as compensated time off, insurance, working hours, and any educational assistance, among others.
When is it acceptable to bargain... Take the job if it's your dream job, the conditions are fair, and/or the employer says it's a firm bid. It makes sense to bargain if you know you won't be able to make the compensation and benefits work for you and/or you have a compelling argument for why you should get a better offer.
