Should I accept a counter offer?

For many undertaking their job seeking journey, handing in their notice may not be as clear cut as it used to be.

As applicant shortages lengthen time to hire for agencies and in-house companies alike, business managers and owners are opting to retain rather than re-hire talent. Many offering higher salaries and promotions to sway interest in staying.

But with the job search not always so clear cut, Julia takes a dive into why accepting a counter offer can be both beneficial and unhelpful for careers.
