Recently had an interview for an accounting role. Haven’t got the real offer yet but I’ve received a recruiting questionnaire and a comp call invite. Is this the call to negotiate salary before extending an offer? I’m afraid if I negotiate they’ll rescind the potential offer since I haven’t got solid word from them yet...

How bad do you want the job? Have a number in mind and stick to it. Sounds confident as if you aren’t desperate and just say “in order for this opportunity to make sense based on my current comp and other offers received, the base would need to be $XX.

No advice if you are truly desperate lol.

Hi Salesforcers, i have a friend of mine who wants to switch careers from banking to tech. He of course doesn't have any tech background and has asked me about a good paying and somehow easy to learn IT job to get into. I have a very basic knowledge about Salesforce admin role but I know of someone who did some bootcamp training and got a decent job as an admin. So my question is that true? If so what kind of training can be taken and how to land a job after?

But I already experienced a situation where they ask me to carry on reliving formalities before issuing Offer letter, and later backs out, not issued offer letter.

My question is
What is right for me to do now
Ask for Offer letter, and tell them only after receiving offer letter, I can proceed reliving formalities?
