Getting a job sales job offer can bring you a sense of relief. Your hard work has paid off. The only thing better than one job offer is multiple job offers. If you are in a great position of having more than one offer, congratulations. You are the envy of many. But you also face a very difficult decision, especially if both offers are similar.

You want to choose the best job for you. You definitely don’t want to choose one job and then quickly realize you should have opted for the other. One of the most effective ways to manage this situation is to create a comparison checklist. Weighing the pros and cons of each job will help you gain a deeper understanding of which position is the best option.

Sales Job Comparison Checklist

Here are some of the things you should consider when comparing the strength of the job offer:

  • Career goals: Which job is best in alignment with your long-term career goals? Is there an opportunity to grow internally?
  • Company: How much do you know about the company? Is there one company you would prefer to work for over the other?
  • Culture: Which company culture fits best with your personal values and beliefs?
  • Compensation: Which company made the best offer? Which offers a better salary? Which company has a better commission plan? Which benefits package is most appealing?
  • Management: What do you think about your potential manager? Are they someone you want to work for? Do you share similar outlooks on sales strategy? Do your personalities work well together?
  • Sales process: Which organization has a more appealing sales process? What do you like and dislike about how each organization approaches sales?
  • Typical day: What does a typical day look like? Which company looks more appealing day-to-day? Is there one that stands out over the other?
  • Gut feeling: What does your intuition tell you? Is there one job that you feel like you should take over another? Is there one that gets you more excited?
  • Outside opinions: Speak with a trusted colleague and get an outside opinion. Have them compare the two offers.
