So you’ve been searching for months for a new job and you’re itching to get out of your current job. You get an offer and feel instant relief; now you can quit the job you dread going to in the morning and you don’t have to continue your never-ending search. It’s tempting to just say, "yes, I’ll take it!"
However, it's always better to do your homework first. Switching your job is life-altering; just like getting married, having a baby or adopting a child, changing jobs has a similar impact on your life financially, emotionally and physically. It could involve moving to a new city and even if it doesn’t, it’s a huge adjustment. You'll spend most of your time with your new employer going forward, so you will want to make sure you’re making the right decision.
