Hi Everyone,

Something completely out of the blue has happened to me. I just onboarded with a company on Monday. I accepted the role three weeks ago after interviewing with and considering three other companies—- one of which was FAANG. I never heard back from FAANG and assumed I didn’t get it, until today. They called me and made me an offer. I really, really want to take the job, but I just started with my new company four days ago and on top of it negotiated a higher salary.

Apparently there is a lot of differences and misunderstanding between us and this could be a step forward.
We are all black and have to come together and have one voice. Let's fix each other instead of fighting each other.
Let me know your thoughts.
