Yes. I explained I was walking away from a bonus at my current job and would like a sign on bonus to make up what I was losing. Especially since at the new job I may not be eligible / be pro rated for a bonus when I start.

I switched from one industry role to another in Dec. When I was negotiating in November I asked for a sign on bonus to compensate for the annual bonus paid out in March I would be losing out in. I said, my bonus will be $40k how about we split the difference and do a $20k sign-on bonus. I also didn’t use a recruiter (went through their internal recruiter) so I also used that point since they weren’t paying a recruiter fee. They did pay the $20k.

I’m currently a few interviews in for a position within industry where I would be working as an associate product manager. Before the last interview, they are asking I send over work related to recent projects (I.e. project plan and schedule, status reports I’ve created for clients, and a slide deck I’ve done for a client). I would obviously scrub any client data/names, but I guess I was wondering if this is a normal request? I feel a little uneasy sending it over even after scrubbing it.
