Do you accept hoping to get a raise after you prove yourself or do you counter for more?

If I'd known that this matter had to be completed, though not assigned to me, I would have volunteered to get it done.

If I ever walk away, it's usually because of a better offer. However, there was one time where a potential employer didn't mention that I'd have to work weekends until the job offer. Throughout the process, it was understood that the role was scheduled for Monday–Friday until the last possible minute.

Absolutely. I cannot work under management that sees me only as a body to fill a needed role. I won't work in a position that doesn't offer me the opportunity to be fully engaged in my role regardless of the money.

Imagine this scenario: You receive an offer from one company, but you are hoping for an offer from another company next week. What's the best way to navigate that situation? Should you tell company #1 that you are waiting on another offer?

That's a tough one... I don't think I would tell company #1 about company #2, but I would have to tell them something to give myself more time. I feel like this happens almost every time I'm up for a job! It's a bit stressful, and you don't want to lie or leave a company high and dry...

It's a bit of a catch-22, until I get the second offer from another company, it'll be hard to officially give an answer to the first company. But I think we could negotiate by telling them the truth and let them know you are excellent.

Imagine this scenario: You get the offer, but it's less than you were hoping for. You don't want the company to rescind the offer, but you also don't want to leave money on the table. What's the best way to go about this?

Until it is done, it will remain undone...

@Bill Branstetter, I think I would show nothing but gratitude for the position at first. Then I would be more than I thought I could be when I begin the position, and if, and only if, I felt worthy, I would ask to speak to the one that can increase my wages....

***UPDATE-SEE UPDATE BELOW ***

After a month of applications the last 2 weeks have been wonderful. I’ve had several interviews, 3 more scheduled and so far 1 job offer. I have feeling I may be offered 1 or 2 more.

I’ve had to be submitted to jobs paying $12,000-$16,000/yr less than what I’ve made in the past. That’s $6-$8/hr less! I guess that’s to be expected after being unemployed for over a year.

What are your thoughts on taking a pay cut to get in the door?

Regardless, I’m feeling blessed.

UPDATEUPDATEUPDATE All interviews went great. I’ve received multiple job offers. 3 offers and expecting 1 more. Could this be leveraged to negotiate my salary? Would you mention the other offers to the each employer?

I received a job offer on Monday and I accepted. I had accepted another offer The prior week and I called them and told them I could not take the position. The newest job sent me an email today and said there is now a hiring freeze so now I have neither job. I can’t seem to catch a break.
