I know this is very case by case but when you receive the offer, do you usually accept it first before you quit? Or do you quit before you accept the offer? I’ve seen people notify their employer before accepting a job offer so they can use this to negotiate a retention package or raise. Is it worth the effort? Curious about how people usually handle this. I'm excited but stressed!

Hi Christine,

This is a great question. After receiving the job offer in letter form with salary, benefits & incentives, I then proceed with accepting the position. Then I wait until I have completed shadowing, passed background check, and drug screening etc. to submit my 2 weeks' notice. I believe there is a professional process to do things when it comes to changing jobs.

From my experience, I accept the offer, wait for my background and everything else to clear before giving notice to my current employer.

If your working, and get a 'written' offer, your in the best seat in the house and zero to lose. Being professional is important, but understand that professional also means firing someone with no notice. It best not to burn bridges, employers understand that the work place is competitive, if your honest with your boss and tell them you have an offer you will quickly see your actual worth - keep in mind that if you stay and get a big increase, you've already tipped your hat your looking for more and will leave with the right offer. Grass isnt always greener thou, but more often than not - you cant move up without moving out.
