National Business Employment Weekly says that an estimated 89% of employees who accept a counteroffer are no longer at that job six months later, and 50% are back searching for jobs within 60 days of accepting a counter.

Top 3 tips on what to do when you receive a counteroffer:

  1. Proactively decline counteroffers: Let your employer know when you quit that you will not consider counters.
  2. Make a "quit list": Before you quit, list all of the reasons you are leaving your job and all of the reasons you are looking forward to your new job. If you receive a counteroffer, keep this list handy and use it to remind yourself that it's not just about the money. 
  3. Don't look back: Close out your old job professionally, but focus on the new job that's ahead of you and get ready for your fresh start, without regret.
