Any tips on how to negotiate salary?
I stated my desired income on the very first call and this response was "keep in mind the sign on bonus".
To me that meant the will not meet my requirement.
I did get a job offer from them.... 8K less than what I asked for.

People with a naturally loud voice, how do you keep it low in regular conversations? PEOPLE THINK THAT I’M YELLING WHEN I’M SPEAKING IN MY NORMAL VOICE, AND PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. But when I yell, that’s obviously earth shattering. The number of times I’ve told my wife I wasn’t yelling is too high.
I don’t know if it was this bowl. But I was in the middle of replying… and I figured maybe other people could benefit? Or you can tell me to f*** off.
Anyway…this person has been hooking up with an ex and wondering if it could be more…

I have about 100k of my previous company stock , holding them for 3 years now. They did not grow much like other stocks and it’s risky to have this much amount in individual stock.

Looking for some recommendations on my finances. I’m 25 and am planning to start a 2 year grad program full time in fall 2022. To cover my living expenses and school fully for 2 years could cost between $65K-$100K depending on programs / scholarships. Right now I have no debt, approx. $75K cash in savings, $32K in my 401K, and $5K in stock. I haven’t invested my savings because I’ll need it in the short term, but is there anything else I could / should be doing?

Zero and zero. The diploma itself is the best gift for yourself. why would you be paid to earn it?
That's a really weird take. Do you not give gifts on holidays? Celebrating holidays is a ritual? Birthdays?
Parents took me out to dinner each time, that’s about it. Just asked my husband and he said the same. I didn’t realize people got gifts for these 🤷🏼♀️ - maybe it’s not a thing in the Midwest?
Fair enough, for our family is was almost like a wedding where relatives and friends of parents/family friends were also invited and most of the adults brought a card so it added up to a few hundred dollars.
Man the “self made” crowd really came out for this one
OP - I’m just here to say how unprivileged I was growing up. Pulled myself up by my own bootstraps. And that I support my parent. Thanks for giving me the forum to say so
Nothing and nothing. In my family it’s just expected that you’ll graduate high school and college. You get nothing for doing it, but if you don’t you’re in big trouble.
Ditto. And both my sibling and I had full tuition scholarships. Parents paid for the dorm.
$20k from parents + grandparents for HS and $50k after college and $75k + a Rolex after law school.
SC3, when I first started I thought the number was how many years you've been that position and then I saw I was A7 in a thread and was like woah how did I go from first year associate to seventh year in a day 😂
Zero and zero
If they paid your entire education i don’t think “zero” is a good answer
$0 and $0
I will add that I fully paid for my own college. I was able to graduate with minimal student loans ($10k) because I lived at home and commuted to an instate university. I worked full time during summers and breaks and part time during semesters.
Nothing for high school. Because I’m a first generation college grad, my grandma saved up and gifted me $1000 when I graduated. $0 for law school- grandma said she can’t afford “all of my degrees” 😂
I hear echos of my immigrant hispanic family saying “we came here for you pendejo, what else do you want?” (They were very very proud, but also honest).
My mom got me vintage pearl Chanel earrings for college graduation. Don’t remember HS
Upon my college graduation - my dad gave me the best gift ever. He thanked me for getting the scholarship that paid for school. Because if I hadn’t - he would have had to work another five years in construction to pay for it. Instead he got to retire at 55.
Still the proudest day of my life.
if your parents helped pay for college I wouldn't expect any sort of gift. That support is a gift in itself
Nothing monetary, my parents paid for school and I felt zero need for another gift.
In high school my family helped me pay for a graduation trip to the Bahamas with my graduation class. That was some of the best memories!
This sounds fun
Got zeros for both time. Had dinners for both undergrad and grad. I have been always working so I ended up paying for dinner. 😅
The silver spoon people here are wild- if your parents paid for your entire college you are not impressive since you got nothing for graduation lol
It’s a fun contradiction
I won’t state amounts. My parents were children during the 1930s (Great Depression) and 1940s (WWII and aftermath) and as adults they were exceptionally frugal in their monetary habits and not into showering my siblings and me with gifts. How frugal? My father’s college friends nicknamed him “Stretch” because “he knew how to stretch a dollar”. My mother sewed clothes, cut the boys’ hair (old school buzz cuts), and was physically very strong. A boy in grade school was verbally and physically bullying girls on the school playground so she brought it to a swift end and put him in his place, with the other kids looking on, which was a life-changing experience for him. For the better.
My parents wanted us to enjoy the fruits of our own labor starting as pre-teens. Babysitting, mowing yards, raking leaves, shoveling snow, working various hourly jobs, and so forth. It made for an interesting life experience. Time flies!
In today’s dollars using an inflation calculator: in the range of approximately $2500 to $3000 for HS and College combined.
I got a nice watch ($2000) for high school graduation.
Got nothing for college graduation other than small amounts (<$100) from misc. family members
I honestly don’t remember but I can’t imagine high school was more than $1000, just random $20-$100 bills in cards from family members. Nothing for college but my mom insisted on getting me a nice necklace that I’ve never taken out of the box 🙄
None for both. My parents have no money, but I’d personally gift my kids like a $1000 in today’s money once they graduate high school.
