Should I ask for a raise?

I hope this doesn't seem insensitive because I know most of you are searching for work. Believe me, I was in your shoes not so long ago and I remember the agony and heartache but I need opinions. I can't post to Facebook because I broke my own rules about not friending people at work. So...

I will start by saying that I really love the company I work for and my job, though it was not without some problems early on. I was hired for a position…

'Tips from Todd'- How do I prepare for a face to face interview?

Hello Jobcasers! Ok, let's talk about what we all want- the face to face interview!

I will walk you through how I have 'prepped' candidates for 20 years fo a f2f interview. Please forgive any misspelling etc.. I'm a Recruiter, not a writer. Second, join my group! Ask a Senior Recruiter anything! No question is dumb and I answer all questions. I'm not seeking a job- I am seeking to give back and help! Try me.

So, you are going to your f2f (face…

The Art Of Salary Negotiations

Perhaps one of the most feared part of the job seeking process is what happens after the job offer is made. It is also a necessary step when gunning for a promotion at our current job. It is negotiating the salary.

Salary negotiation can be scary. But what’s even scarier is not doing it. A study revealed that of those people who negotiated, they were able to increase their salary by over 7%. That may not sound…

When a job offer isn’t what I want...

What do you say when someone offers you a job but you need to decline, because it’s not exactly what you want or not what you thought it would be?

I think your answer would depend on why the job doesn't work for you.

If nothing about the job fits what you want then…

Recruiter negotiating salary after 2 interviews

A couple days ago I finished 2 rounds of interviews at a company. After interviewing two times, but before the 3rd round, the recruiter calls and says your asking is a bit too high. I said well we can negotiate on it when the time comes. Is this normal?

Note: The recruiter asked me what my salary asking was before interview and I gave him a range

I don't think that's unreasonable if you did your research to see what the current market is paying Jasmit Tarang ! Also there is…

Common Pitfalls in the Search for our Next Employment Opportunity

Hey Jobcasers,

Let's talk about the common pitfalls we face in our search for our next employment opportunity.

First, let's talk about the hiring process and how it works.

  1. We submit job applications/resumes/cover letters (usually online).

  2. We interview and hope for an offer or an invitation to the next interview; this repeats until we get an offer or aren't moved along to the next step of the hiring process.

  3. We negotiate and either accept or…

The job I interviewed for in November finally happened. There was a lot of negotiation between then and now, but it finally happened. My advice to those looking to move on:
1) Be real about your capabilities. Throw them all out there, especially at that interview. It gives the potential employer the potential value you can bring to the company. At the same time, don't over exaggerate. If you don't know how to do something, say so. While you may…

This is Awesome, thank so much for sharing these tips and encouragement Christina Toth . Congrats on your new job!

I was just offered a job that I know is worth $20 hr. , its paying a cheeseeee $11 hr
I'm not stupid and I know I'm worth more than that and the job should pay better that what their offering, I said HELL NO to them and he had the nerve to ask me if i knew anyone that would work,, , i hung up the phone.

Yeah, that doesn't sound like the right job for you. Good thing you were wise enough to recognize that right away.

"They Won't Pay Me My Worth"

I see this phrase a LOT on Jobcase, typically mixed with other reasons an applicant feels they didn't get the job. (Age, appearance, race, etc...)

There very well may be something to this, though the responsibility might not fall onto the shoulders of the potential employer, as much as it falls on the applicant's.

You may have twenty years of experience in your industry. In this example, let's say your experience happens to be in office…


Your Post is right on target, great insight, and extremely factual I just love it! Should make us all Think...Stop…

When negotiating salary, how willing are employers to exhange compensation for vacation time?

As I mature in my career, I'm finding that I prefer a better life/work balance, and that my time away from work is just as important as my dedicated time at work.

Hi Paul Lauterbach I think that is 100% a personal choice. I definitely agree with you that we all need to strike a balance…
