What’s the best way to deal with negotiating a start date for a new job when dealing with pre-planned travel / vacation that cannot be moved??

Be honest & firm with your availability and start date but maybe youdon't say you're going on vacation just unavailable

Just say you booked it and be up front. I was she they were fine. If a company isn't open to that, it's a red flag imo.

Just say it. People take vacations, it’s not the end of the world. When I started a prior job, i was very upfront that I couldn’t do the start date they wanted because of a vacation a year in the making. In my opinion it sets boundaries of sorts. Some jobs will be quick to rob you of your life outside of work, but only if you let them. So again, just say it.

You state that directly. I would mention it as there's nothing wrong with it and it happens all the time. If they're making you an offer they must really like you and the business won't fall apart without you for two extra weeks. I've never heard of an offer being rescinded because of it but in the wild chance that it did get rescinded, you dodged a bullet!

I noticed that on my wife’s pay calculation the total salary (when I do the calculation) doesn’t line up with what is listed on her offer letter.

Hey everyone! Wanted some advice - got an offer from a big ad agency for a Planning Manager role. Base salary is $90K (more than satisfactory, I have 2.5-3 years of total agency exp), but their PTO is severely lacking especially compared to my unlimited PTO benefit at my current job - they offered 10 actual PTO days, which are even prorated since it's mid-year. Assuming their PTO allowance is negotiable, any advice for how to handle the email follow-up to the written offer/how much to ask for?
