6 Steps to Consider Before Accepting a Job Offer

Blog Articles

CIBR Warriors EVP Scott Garfield spent some time with reporter Deanna Cuadra from Employee Benefits News to discuss one of his favorite topics — the hiring process. In the article Scott walks through some important steps to consider before accepting a job offer.

Scott says when candidates are determining whether or not to move forward with the position, they should rely on CLAMPS, an acronym he’s utilized many times over the course of his lengthy career. What is CLAMPS? Great question:

  • Challenge
  • Location
  • Advancement
  • Money
  • People
  • Security

The article does a great job of diving into each of the bullet points above, providing a solid suggested outline for candidates as they navigate this sometimes confusing path to finding the perfect position. So if you’re in the market for a new gig, we’d highly recommend reviewing the article.

But at the end of the day, in the piece Scott says just be sure to do your due diligence. “It’s no different than when you’re trying to date — you’re looking for alignment and mutual expectations. Go on a few dates and make sure you’re finding the right organization that can articulate how they’re going to help you and the future of your career. If you can do that, I think you’ll land in the right place.”
