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…
You got the job offer, you are so excited. But did you really get the job offer?
Companies that are on the up and up will always, not sometimes but always do the following:
Send you a job offer, and what is included in that letter is Critical;. Keep that letter, make copies. Hopefully, you will not need to point anything out that is not being done.
Job offers can vary but they should at a minimum have the following information.
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…
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?
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.
