Handling-counter-job-offers

If you are offered a pay rise in response to handing in your resignation, we would advise you to proceed with caution. It can be easy to be enticed by the money, be wooed by your manger's flattery and comforted by the familiarity of what you know but before you accept the payrise and agree to stay, we recommend you consider the following – 1.     Why did you want to leave in the first place? If you were feeling undervalued, frustrated or keen for a new challenge these things are not likely to change. 2.     Why did it take a resignation to prompt the pay rise? If it’s about money, are you going to have to go through this drama every time you want a pay rise?...
