Hello! This is the 4th and (almost) the last part of my video series about finding a new job. This time I'm talking to Matthew Barr who manages recruitment team at Orange Quarter in Amsterdam. We cover a range of topics: how to choose between job offers, how to compare job offers, how to get a feedback after rejection, whether accepting a counteroffer is a good idea and what are the things besides the basic salary that you should pay attention to.
