Due a Raise? Three Tips for Building Your Case to Convince Your Boss

By | November 19th, 2018|

When you accepted your current job, you were prepared with data to defend the salary you were demanding. You researched your market value with sites like Glassdoor. You came up with a figure that you felt was reasonable and, at last, your boss agreed. What about now? Not feeling the love? That initial agreement might feel like a distant memory and, as you approach the end of the calendar year, now may be the time to re-visit that discussion. In [...]

Evaluating a Counter-Offer: Should You Stay or Go?

By | October 23rd, 2018|

It may be impossible to find objective advice for how to respond to a counter-offer to stay at your current job. Your current company wants you to stay.

How to Talk Salary With Candidates

By | September 4th, 2018|

When you first see the candidate’s resume, in passing, you think, ‘I wonder how much they make now?’ A similar question weighs on each applicant after they’ve submitted their resume, ‘I wonder how much they’d be paying?’   And, whether you call it pay, salary, compensation or money – the topic is omnipresent in the pursuit of all qualified applicants. So, if the topic is important enough to weigh on both hiring manager and candidate, why isn’t salary the first topic [...]

3 Keys to Presenting a Job Offer

By | August 20th, 2018|

Most articles written about the topic of job offers center on the applicant – how to counter-offer, what they should to look for in the offer details, questions to ask and how quickly to respond. Left out in these resources is advice for the other side – the point of view of the hiring manager presenting the offer.  There are few things written about best practices in crafting and presenting job offers and, in a labor market that has excess [...]
