On their dime? You realize they can see your visit history, right? This is an investment. And now you just gave them free positive PR to a target audience. Your endorsement here is worth WAY more than an ad would ever be. ...were you paid for this post???

About to have my final interview with an agency I really love. The pay increase will be 6K which I verbally agreed to, but am wondering if I can ask for 4K more (10K total) after the final interview?

Is it a good sign if my interviewer said they want to move “as fast as possible on this” and my answers were “perfect” and he responded to my thank you email right away or is that just common curtesy? This is my first interview in years so I honestly don’t know.

In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.
