Many young professionals are flooded with multiple job offers from various companies, giving them more options to choose from. This is good news for the candidates, but not necessarily for the employers.
Candidates often play it safe by accepting all offers, then choose the most lucrative one of the lot. In the process, they do not inform the companies they have rejected of their decision. Many candidates (especially in the IT industry) just do not show up on the proposed joining date. Obviously, the disappearing act proves inconvenient for the company.
“While you are excited about taking that dream offer, it is your professional responsibility to intimate other employers who also offered you a job,” says Shashank Dixit, CEO of Pune-based Krawler Networks.
It could be the compensation, job profile, location or perhaps all of them, but saying ‘No’ appropriately will make sure the organisation keeps its doors open for you in future.
