The usual process when a person applies for a job is straightforward: an applicant submits an application letter stating that they are interested to work in their company and how they can contribute to them. Submitted together with the letter is their resume and other supporting documents.
Once this have been submitted to the company, the applicant must then wait for the company to call them back for an exam and a set of interviews. Once an applicant is considered qualified for the position, they will once again be summoned by the company for the contract offer.

Tips for Negotiating a Contract Offer
A contract offer, also known as a job offer, is a formal document provided by an employer inviting a potential employee, whether or not he or she has applied for a position, to become an employee for a specific company. It lists all the term and conditions of the job, including the job description, position, compensation, benefit details, and other details.
Here are a few tips we offer when negotiating the terms in your contract:
- Hiring managers will do everything to get an employee to their company only if they are likable. Therefore, make sure you’ll impress the interviewer enough for them to like you.
- Even if you’re currently waiting for a call back from another company you applied, especially if the interviewer is aware that you have applied in another company, make sure that you make the interviewer feel that you are more interested in working for them than the others.
- Always be prepared for difficult questions. Do this by looking for sample questions and practice answering them. The smartest thing to do is to be as honest as possible and not try too hard to please the hiring manager.

Tips on How to Handle On-the-Spot Contract Offers
- Express appreciation and gratitude to the hiring manager for the offer even if you are unsure in accepting it.
- Ask politely for a little more time to think about it or ask advice from someone else if the job is right for you. Don’t wait too long, though, only give yourself a maximum of 24 hours to do this.
- If you have applied in another company, be honest and tell the interviewer about it so they can mention to you even more details to convince you to choose them over the other.
