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 thought my fellow Jobcasers would be encouraged reading this story:
A few weeks ago, I received an email as I was found through an online search to see if I would be interested in a newly created position. I did a quick check of the organization, was impressed and replied back.
In turn, I received a reply, had a phone screen, was asked to go in for a first interview, a second interview and then a third interview. I met with 8 people total. A…
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
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.
We submit job applications/resumes/cover letters (usually online).
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.
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…
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.
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…
Honestly - I want to hear from other women how they ask for what they are worth during initial and merit-based salary negotiations.
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.
I went for an interview and I believe I am in a good spot to have the job. The problem is the location of the job is a bit far and the pay may be not enough to compinsate the travel. The job is basically I'll be testing checking programming, along with also maintaining inventory. I feel they may ask me for 15-18 an hour where I would take the job at 22. Is there a good way besides stating for travel expenses for them to increase my pay? I'm…
First of all I am looking for a new job before anyone says look for a job. My current employer just paid everyone for our regular payroll schedule. I noticed that my check was cut in half for the previous pay. I thought it was a mistake so I contacted our payroll department. When I explained what happen to my pay as I seen it. They informed me that they were notified from my Manager that I had accepted a 50% pay cut. Confused by this because why…
