I waited 4-5 weeks after all interviews. I think it is pretty normal, they will get back to you to negotiate your salary

Thanks for the comment. That's reassuring to hear, kinda felt they forgot about me lol.

I got a verbal offer after more than a month of the last interview and took another 2 weeks to get a written offer.

How to ask for a raise or adjustment and get one? I have year end reviews coming up with my boss. I have been contacted by a few competitor firms for an open para position starting about 10-15k more than I am making now. One para who was recently hired came from one of those competitor firms so I’m guessing she is making 10k more than me at minimum. I enjoy my boss and team, but also love the idea of an extra 10-15k in my pocket!

What’s your interview:job offer ratio? I’ve gone on six 3rd to 6th rd interviews since July but still haven’t gotten a job offer. Kinda depressing.

About 6 months ago I applied for a team lead role and didn't get it. My boss, in recognition of my efforts (and maybe being a little scared that I'd quit) gave me a 13% raise, and minor promotion to get better clients. NOW I applied for another team lead role (2nd interview soon, wish me luck), if I get it, could withhold a raise from me? Or maybe short me on a raise because I already got a bump this year? I haven't had the convo yet, just trying to be prepared.
