Hi! I have a quick question and could use some advice:

I have 1 job offer that is an hour away and pays 45k, after negotiations (Research Associate Position at a University) .

I have just interviewed for a position closer to home and a base salary of 65k, but haven’t heard back from them in about 2 days (He said he would make a decision by yesterday and I’ve reached out).
I have to decide on the first offer by Thursday but I haven’t heard back from the second yet. Thoughts on next move?

You can accept on Thursday and continue. Then quit if you get the other offer if you have the courage for it.

*UPDATE* I took the University position and never heard back from the second position, so I’m assuming he moved on. So far it’s going well!

You could have let the 2nd job know what’s going on so they have a reason to move. It could be they offered it to someone else yesterday but waiting for an answer. In any case, good luck!

If they haven't reached out past their due date, it's because they are looking at other candidates. And no I would not expect them to still consider you in the running. Take the job that has made the offer. You know it's the bird in the hand versus two in the bush sort of thing.

Take the job offer and look for other opportunities.

Hey guys! What a great app and space! I’ve been wondering how long I should hang onto this technical recruiter role at 55k salary plus commission . I love my team, the resources and training , PTO, etc… but, I’m underpaid for sure. I got involved with this agency for the training and notoriety. When should I jump ship and which way should I go to make the most $$$ with work/life balance. ??? I know it’s a broad topic without more specs but general answers will do. Thanks!

Recently promoted. Managing 4 direct reports, which essentially means I’m managing an entire department (it’s small company). Offered a 10% increase, which according to my research is low. Also know for a fact that 2 peers were offered 15% right off the bat, even though I’m technically more senior than they are. Live in NYC, 8 years of experience at the company and in total (first job out of college). I’m being told that there is no chance of negotiating further. Am I being taken advantage of?

Anyone else getting a little Rolex fatigue? Every year seems to be small incremental changes to watches that I’ll never be able to get due to their distribution model.

And when they do push the envelope (OPs 2 years ago), they get discontinued 2 years later and pump prices up…
