What is your current salary? 1.5 years is not a lot of weight for you to be pushing the salary request much higher than what you currently make.

You say it with a straight face but expect reality to simmer you down. Meaning ask for what you want and be prepared not to get it. What are their engagement margins? With just 2 ppl, I assume pretty high around 65% where the partner draws his income from profits after bills are paid, mostly your salary which means he’s probably not willing to do more than 35% of revenues. Your experience doesn’t command more than that but their circumstances might.

Sounds like you're being offered a commission-based role instead of a salaried role. You can make tons of $ but it will be hard. Ask more questions about # hours required and the type of work. I wouldn't do it, because I like the stability of a salary, but for you, you could learn a ton and figure out how to be entrepreneurial like the head honcho

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job.

I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?
