How to Evaluate an Offer

Start Date - 2 week notice is still the standard

An employer will discuss your start date, which should be stated in the offer letter. If you are currently employed, your start date should be at least two weeks later, giving you enough time to notify your current employer. It could be as long as four weeks if you hold a management position or if it takes longer to find a replacement for your current position. Negotiate for more time if you feel it's necessary to help you make a smoother transition into your new career.
