How to renegotiate with the company which gave you offer letter first? How to start the conversation for the same..I really don't have any idea. If I get 55% hike in second offer letter. How much should I ask to first company while renegotiation. Any suggestions?

Company can revise your offer, you can go and tell this is what other company is willing to offer. If you give me same or near to it, then I'm giving assurance I won't join any other organisation, I will be committed to your organization only. Actually same happened to me for time being hr gave me some X package, now in between I informed her that other company is giving me more than you, she said she will revise offer letter 15 days prior to date of joining I need to call her, as per we had discussion, but she said she will give more that what I asked, Reason - at end point I'm telling her that I want this much offer, so definitely she will stick to words I hope this help you!


Thanks for your reply...so if I am having second offer for 53% , can I ask Capgemini to give 70% ?


Not sure if companies see this re-re-negotiation strategy with a positive mindset. In my org, we have stopped recruiting those who come to negotiate on already-held offers.


Which company is it?

Hmm what is the hike in first offer letter? Is big difference or 3-5%? If it's not a big difference, I don't know if I would risk it it if you want first offer job. Also what is the company? Some are not flexible with negotiations I heard.

In first offer letter it's 15% hike + 1.5 lakhs joining bonus. company is Capgemini. Second oFfer letter gives 53% hike but I really want to join Capgemini. Please suggest.

Why not take the better offer? Even with renegotiation, it is unlikely that they will add more than 50%.

But second company is not that big and I also heard that yearly increment is not good there.

How much % hike you got while revised offer letter..

I would ask Capgemini to match rather than go for full 70% OR go the full 70% but expect that they will end up somewhere in the middle. It's worth trying to renegotiate but they may not end up going for it so be careful how much you push

I am expecting one more offer letter by this week..if I get more than 60% in that, then I can ask for 70%..I believe..

Anyone else have parents who divorced when you were already an adult? Any advice for someone going through it? I’m 27 and my parents very recently separated, headed toward finalizing a divorce. It’s getting super messy and been tough for me to process and navigate new family dynamics (especially now with the holidays which were previously so family centric). (Edit to add: already in therapy and this is definitely a topic of discussion)


For a friend: she has junior associate (technology) level offers from Goldman and Facebook both. she wants to grow in technology. Which one to choose considering career growth opportunities, company culture, brand on resume etc. (both compensation packages are comparable).


Is internal audit worth it? Im 32M married with a baby. Currently an acct advisory manager making 131k base. Recently, ive started to think about leaving as I can’t stand the stress from both work and home. The first opportunity a recruiter found me is an internal audit manager gig. Company is pre-ipo stage, and would like my experience since all I’ve been working on since last yr is ipos and spac merger. If they can match my salary or go up to 140Ks for 40-45 hrs work, should i take it? -> /2


Working on my first LLC to Corp conversion for a start up. Client intends to issue shares to the mentors who will provide services through the client’s platform and to members who sign up to receive services. Seems odd to me. Has anyone worked on a deal of this nature?


How long is ApplicantLab valid for?? Anyone has an account they would want to share? Thanks!


Hi all, how do you know if you’re not going to get the job offer lol (ex. Do they respond later to your emails/texts or no reply at all? In the beginning the recruiter was very prompt in responding back)


I’m entry level (2020 grad). Used to work at an awesome startup before my current job in SaaS. I’ve been ramping at this co. though so I haven’t even gotten the experience yet I want on my resume. But I talked with the startup co-founder about rejoining. I was thinking part time to start, but he says there’s a high chance of a full time job for me there. Startup is 100% remote. My job at current company is client meetings and deliverables. How difficult would it be to work both at once?

Is there a “rule” for putting in your 2-weeks around bonuses? Could I put in my two weeks so that my last day is maybe a day or two after bonuses hit? Or should I wait until after they hit before giving notice? I know it isn’t “wrong,” but just worried about leaving on a bad note.


Has anyone used a career coach before? Was it helpful? In what way if so?
