Interviewing for an exp hire role for the first time and I want to know more about negotiating an offer. Recruiter calls me with an offer, I say no I want x more, they take my request back?

Basically, yeah. First, have a minimum number. Then, if the offer is better than that, know before the conversation how much more you’re wanting to ask for. Another 5k? Round up to the nearest 10 thousand, so 87 becomes 90? Have a minimum, and have a plan. And if the offer completely blows you away (like 30 or more over your minimum), graciously say that sounds great and inquire further about PTO and bonus expectations, 401k matching, etc. Maybe they can add a percent of match to retirement funds or give you a few extra personal days if they’re stingy with those.

You’re welcome! Oh, and don’t go “uhh well um...” when they give you the number because then they know they beat you and you’re scrambling to come up with something on the spot.

Any advice would help as this is my first time. Thanks in advance!

I always say need to think about it in terms of total comp. then come back after a day or so with a counter. Knowing your min as SC1, said is key.

Have a reason. Our 401k match is shit. Say you get more currently and are factoring that in as part of total.

I’m interviewing for a company and was asked to show work at the in-house company I work for. Problem is most of my work is from an marketing agency. The work that I’ve done in-house so far is very small design tasks in comparison to the work I’ve done at an agency. Should I just show several design assets I worked on at the in-house company?

Is anyone working at Uber now or has in the past? Got an interview there but I just want to learn more about their culture

I've been working for 6 months as a recruiting temp. My original contract was dec-march. Then we mutually extended it when I had another offer for March. They then offered me full-time but I was interested in another role in another department. They agreed and I'm going to be working the 'temp to hire' role in the new department.

Am I allowed to ask for a new hourly rate for this 'new' role? I took the original rate due to covid necessity but would have asked for more if it was temp-to-hire.

Hi everyone! I would appreciate any guidance on this and if it is a good offer, should I counter, etc. This is my original offer for an ABP role:

Equity $80,000 vested over 4 years

I’m coming with 5 YOE in a non-tech role. I don't have much experience negotiating in the tech space. So, again, any guidance is appreciated. :)
