In the same boat—this has become widely accepted practice in start up land. They don’t see it as a problem. I’d ask for comp for the time.

And sign an agreement that states it’s your IP until a job offer is secured—in which case it can become part of your work product for the company (their IP)

Yes that’s great feedback thank you! I missed your message til now and had replied that I’d do a verbal presentation but your fee/agreement reco secures my ownership and value. Have you ever demanded and been refused or has your candidacy impacted negatively by this?

Heya!!! I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency. The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk. This is a little bit challenging to me. Talk numbers. The position ask for at least 4 years experience. I have 6. I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company. Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!

Currently at FAANG in a Client Solutions role. I’ve been here for 6 months, have the opportunity to potentially transition to BizOps or Product (in title, work is more implementation focused) in 6 months. Just got a Sales Strategy offer for a tech company but not FAANG. I like the team, pay is equal, and it’s remote with monthly travel. Scared of burning FAANG bridge with potential move out but also dislike my role because I hate sales and want to do strategy work. Thoughts?
