Interview. I feel like if they weren’t interested they would’ve told me by now. Part of me thinks they’re trying to buy time to interview other candidates or possibly wait until the new year. I also told them that I was passively looking which is true, so maybe they’re testing me?

I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
