Pat yourself on the back, because you just nailed the interview. It was a long, exhausting day that left you with a lot to think about, but now you're just focused on rewarding yourself with a glass of wine and a Netflix binge.

Except – wait – what's this? Your interview finished minutes ago, and these guys are offering you the job! Oh, by the way, they need to know if you'll accept within 24 hours.

Yay, but also oy. There goes your night of vegging out. Cue panic mode: Make all the phone calls, do all the soul-searching and weigh all the pros and cons – ASAP. Maybe hold onto that wine.
