Hi Folks.
I was laid off last month .Gave few interviews and got an offer recently. The issue is that they are offering me salary lower than the last company. The reason they gave me is bcoz you were receiving x salary in your last to last company and you switched in just 6 months . Why do companies ask for the expected ctc then ?What should I do? Have no other offers currently.

If they have fooled you by agreeing to expected CTC earlier and low balling you later take revenge by accepting the offer and send a mail on day before joining saying that you won't be able to join giving the above reason.


This is actually irrelevant, I too switched in just 8months and they only
Looked on to my skills and gave offer letter .. they are just fooling u


Ask them to atleast match your last CTC brother. Why to join for below

Have emis and dont have another offer rn

Pls mention ur Tech/YOE/CCTC

Tech- Salesforce BA
Cctc -17

We have openings in Cognizant for Salesforce.. DM if u r interested

Set your expectations before interview. So give interviews which agree to pay atleast your current CTC.

Keep applying meanwhile if you under a financial crunch take the offer. DM for Accenture refferal

I have been struggling with juggling work and caregiving for my elderly parents who are at the point where they need constant help, however they refuse to believe they need to move to assisted living. I am struggling with keeping up with work and trying to have some semblance of a life outside of work and caring for them. I understand that caring for small kids can feel like this, but this is different. There is no moment of joy, it’s all kind of depressing. Looking for some wisdom of others.
