#058 Two Job Offers…Now What?

Receiving multiple job offers at the same time is an exciting circumstance when you’re searching for an NP position,

But it can bring up challenging questions like, “Which one should I take?” and “How do I make the right choice?”

First of all, take a deep breath and realize that this is a GOOD ‘problem’ to have.

And with a few communication pointers and decision-making tips, you’ll be ready to sign on the dotted line!

I’ve laid out how to weigh two job offers against one another in this week’s episode and included 3 key areas to consider when contrasting your prospects.

I also share suggestions for how to reply in such a way that respectfully communicates your enthusiasm, gets your questions heard, and allows you more time to make your decision.


In today’s episode, I’ll walk you through:

  • The 3 key factors to consider when weighing the pros and cons of a job offer
  • How your future goals and longer term desires impact your job decision
  • What else to consider when it comes to salary and benefits (This is something not usually talked about, but I definitely want my new grad NPs to hear this!)
  • What to say and do when you have more than one job offer…
  • How I would reply to these job offers 
  • How to secure more time to make your decision
  • When it’s OK to turn down a job offer (and why I encourage it)
