Want to use an offer to leverage a higher salary, those who have done this before - can I be required to show the letter? Do I have to say who the offer is from? Is the firm going to reach out to confirm the offer? I don’t want to lose the chance for the new role, but I would stay if they could match the offer. Please help!

i’m pretty sure you don’t have to show it but they can not offer to match

Your current employer can certainly ask, but you’re in no way obligated to show them or tell them about it. That said, if they do ask and you don’t show them, or you try to use the offer as leverage and your current employer doesn’t offer to match — that’s going to cause an awkward situation. You’ll most likely have to be prepared to walk.

You absolutely can! But that still won’t guarantee they’ll do a retention offer or that the offer will match what you have in hand. It’s a difficult situation… that’s why you’ll either have to be prepared to walk or possibly stay in your current role and have the scenario of your manager/employer knowing you’re looking elsewhere.

Is anyone struggling with motivation more than normal?

I’m grateful partners are sending me work, but I’m burnt out and struggling to see the point in this slog. Anyone else experiencing this or have tips to grind through?
