Almost ten years ago, I encountered a situation where I had two companies offer me jobs at the same time. I was in a situation in my life where I was able to actually start working both jobs before making a decision which one I should keep. I know I made the correct decision all that time ago. The job that I choose to keep allowed me to meet wonderful mentors and leaders across many levels of the business (and others), grow my skills in many areas, and generally put me in a much better position than I think I would have been with the other job. For that I am eternally grateful.
Obviously, most people in this situation would not have that luxury so it becomes harder to figure out which direction to go. If you do find yourself in this predicament, first of all, congratulations! Secondly, check out James Caan’s piece on LinkedIn yesterday for some thoughts on how to make the best decision for you.
