I was told that I was the chosen candidate for a new role that I applied for which will be promotion, I just recently received my offer and was surprised and decided to start negotiating. My boss immediately said that this is offer, either take it or lose it and no negotiating, and was only given a day to decide whether I want it or not, so he repost the position, and was also told that I was going about it the wrong way for trying to negotiate, Is this wrong of me to negotiate?

Found out yesterday I didn’t get a promo and had what I felt was a productive convo with the person that broke the news to me. I told my male SO and he told me I should have “raised hell,” i e essentially threw a fit about it to the news breaker. He called it “umpire theory” and said it was a tactic he was taught, i e how the manager of a baseball team screams and yells at the umpire, not in hopes of changing the decision, but rather influencing future calls.

Would appreciate some help with how to handle ambiguity with requesting information from clients. Example: we are upgrading an add on of a client’s ERP. We asked for support contacts for all applications and add ons. that we need to talk to. While working the project, we were told by the client that we had not engaged xxxxx support team. When we told them they hadn’t told us that this particular team existed, their response is “this isn’t an application or add on, it’s a utility.”

I got laid off in January and have been trying to find a new job since. I keep making it to the phone interview and sometimes a second interview, but always get ghosted. It’s so disheartening.

I have too much experience for an internship, and I have too little to be the top choice for copywriter roles. I know I’m a good writer, I know what I’m capable of, but it’s so exhausting trying to convince people. They always like my book but it’s never enough to get the gig. What can I do?
