(You/they) Cant have your cake and eat it too. Tell them to show you the compensation, then talk. You may be surprised at how little or big it is, and then can propose your desired sitch based on facts. Ive been here - until money & terms are on the table its all conjecture, for both sides. Would you do it for free? If so, keep talking. If not ask for them to make you an offer. They may not even know what they need at this point.

No offer is no offer. If you ask for a smaller role, there will still be a leftover role to fill. They may find someone else then willing to take this FT job instead. Especially if it’s an awesome 2-3 year project.

More background - they really like me but we haven't gone into negotiations yet or been offered, but have had multiple convos/lots of emails with the director to learn about project. It's a small shop, no HR or anything.

They explained after the first few months it would slowly become part time but they'd give me FT salary, which I why I think I can swing it.

Gotcha.

Thanks D1, very true.

Lately I’ve been trying to quit consulting and take up a less intense job for the period while my kids are very young so I don’t miss out on their early years. For now I’ve been applying to back office roles at banks to the extent where I can figure out that they are relaxed and not too intense. But I have a hard time converting any of my applications to such roles. I think my resume doesn’t make it past hr. And I have a hard time locating the hiring manager. Any tips?

I’m 24 years old and will make about 90k this year. Very happy with that and content with where I am now as opposed to this time last year.

Was it once you hit a certain salary? Or once you reached a certain milestone? Or another reason? Or never!?

I need to help. My partner and I have been quarantining together. While I have a normal consulting job, my partner is a semi-retired ex-CEO.

I project my next job will pay $100-150k. Current $85k, and I let them lowball me because I liked the company. Would it make more sense to get a new job and just ride the market?

We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.
