Are you considering several options for either your internship or full-time position? Having the luxury of a selection of offers to choose from can be overwhelming. We want to walk you through tips in learning how to make your best decision. Important factors can be benefit packages, job descriptions (which initially may have attracted you to the job), job mobility, and work environment. Keep in mind that whatever decision you make, you will be working that specific job for an extended period of time, so it is critical to make informed decisions in figuring which opportunity is best suited for you to reach your long term goals.
Tip 1: Do some soul searching and dive in deep to the position description and organization as a whole to list what you like best and any red flags.
Other things to consider are:
- Advancement opportunities
- Benefit packages
- Work environment/company culture
- Training/continuing education opportunities
Tip 2: We recommend organizing your thoughts on paper or in electronic form so you can compare/contrast easily.
Tip 3: Talk with the CCP! The Center for Career Planning is also glad to process any information/decisions with you. Contact us today if you would like to speak with an advisor.
