Is it totally weird to request another meeting after getting a job offer to make sure it's a right fit? 🤔

I've noticed that sometimes I still have lingering questions. ❔

I've been burnt out by toxic work environments, so I don't want to make another mistake. 🙄

How would you handle this logistics of this meeting? (Timing - after the offer but with time before you start? How to phrase the reason why?)

Thanks! 🔅☺️

I suggest followup questions by phone call. Don’t ask for another in-person meeting to be considerate of everyone’s time including your own. The risk here is that they may not think you really want the job,

I would try the “sandwich approach” First thank them for the offer and mention one or two things that excite you about the job. Then mention you have a couple of follow up questions. Close by either accepting the offer or by saying you need a day or two to think before you accept.


And don’t feel badly if you choose not to accept. Life is too short and work is too long for a bad job fit.


I think that’s a great idea and would find most would understand wanting to be certain


You should have whatever conversations needed to give you peace of mind. A good manager will understand and appreciate it; you both want a long term relationship.


Didn’t the hiring manager or HR rep suggest you contact them with any further questions? Regardless, reach out to HR about your questions. Or better yet ask the hiring manager or your future coworkers any outstanding questions. I’m curious what type of questions do you have. Or does your gut instinct tell you to avoid the place? Sometimes you have to listen to your ‘gut’. With all that said, If you don’t like your current job don’t just take the next job offer just to improve on your current problems without feeling good about the new place. You have every right to meet up with people or do a quick call.


The recruiter or hiring manager must have shared an email address. You can always ask one of them to answer a few follow-up questions. What questions do you have?

I feel like I’m getting burnt out of marketing after ~6 years of being in the workforce. I’m considering a pivot into product management or uxui design, as I’ve always been a “generalist” in my marketing skill set and both of those functions represent about 25% of what I do on a day to day. Has anyone done the same pivot? What did you like/dislike about making the switch?

Do you think my interview process was fair? Should I bring it up to my manager?

During my interview process, my hiring manager assigned me a specific topic for my presentation. All of my colleagues in my department, who have the same hiring manager, were allowed to choose their own presentation.

1 colleague was hired a year before me and the others were hired a few months after me. I’m an AAM female and my colleagues are White men and women. Story continued in pic attached.

Hi my comrade Digital Marketing Managers!
Here in South Africa a super junior SMM will earn about R5000-R12000 ($250-800 per month).
5 years experience in all digital media faculties (Paid + organic, all core social platforms, plus solid analytics) pretty much R25000 ($1300 per month)

Cream of the crop where you’re actually managing and strat VS executing deliverables: R60000 ($4000) per month.

I’m shook at how much you are earning in EU and USA!


Is my manager forcing me out?

In our 121 last we had a good discussion on creating a personal development plan, with the idea being I’d write down clear goals & action points to get from my current level to the next, and I’d provide weekly evidence of it. I prepped the doc accordingly, but instead of wanting to discuss it, he said I have 4 weeks to “turn things around” - without giving any new info on what I’ve done wrong - esp given I wrote my goals based on this same feedback from last week??
