In general job market is 🔥 just like the general job market, may not be as 🔥 as hype about tech moving to Austin though. Some of the big projects here such as Tesla and Samsung factories are primarily bringing lower-skilled jobs. Three buckets of companies in tech: 1. Local/semi-local companies (eg Favor/H‑E‑B, Bumble, Indeed, WFM, Dell, etc) that’ve been here a while, comp is ok but nowhere near SV. Also earlier stage local startups most of which don’t pay that well. 2. The SV tech cos that are building presence in Austin/going more remote (Google/Facebook/Apple/Oracle). Things are still shaking out here in terms of what roles exactly will move here and how it will be down (historically not been much PM/ENG at all), need to check with recruiter but they are becoming more flexible so that’s an option though you may not sit with your team. 3. SV Remote first cos thar may or may not have office in Austin (eg Dropbox, Affirm, instacart, Coinbase, etc). If you just search Austin jobs online sometimes you only hit on bucket 1 which makes it seem limited, if maximizing for comp I would expand my search and prioritize buckets two and three (unless being in person with your team/company is a huge priority). The comp tends to be much higher in these buckets as well. Not sure if local companies have adjusted yet, if so still in process.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
