How to Handle Salary Conversations with Confidence

Tim's Strategy

In both my recruiting and my job search coaching, I’ve been hearing a lot of questions about salary negotiations lately so I’ve put together a little Q&A of common questions. First, though, let’s talk about the mindset of salary for your new job. Many of us have issues around worthiness and putting the right price on our own services (which is all a salary is… the price for your services). Q: What do I say if they ask for my salary history?

The Undercover Recruiter

By that I mean doing some simple salary calculations so you go into an interview with a range in mind. Negotiating salary during the interview process can be very overwhelming. Many interviewees also don’t like the idea of starting off on the wrong foot with a potential new employer, and the thought of confrontation leads them to accept whatever offer the company gives.

I’m addicted to job searching, interviewing just for practice, and more

Ask a Manager

I’m addicted to job searching. I can’t stop looking for new jobs. I spent nearly all of 2014 job searching, applying, interviewing, etc. I was barely making enough money to make ends meet at the time, so finding a new job was crucial. I did eventually find a new job at a well-known firm, and I received a $20K raise and a senior title. I just celebrated my one-year anniversary at this new job, and overall I’m happy.

Career Alley

We’ve all been there, we make the decision that it’s time leave our current employer and look for another job.

month at Ask a Manager, and all December I’m running updates from people who had their letters here answered in the past. A few people in the comments asked for an update to my work life since I left that job, so I wanted to provide a little more detail about the awful place I was in and where I am now.

Ask a Manager

I am one of the many students whose classes have all been moved online for the remainder of the semester, but I am in grad school, so many of my colleagues (including me) worked for a time before coming back to school. This is a class rather than work so things are a little more relaxed, but in most work contexts it would come across as unprofessional — overly casual, like cracking open a beer or painting your nails on a video conference.

Ask a Manager

My employer wants to bring me back to work — at half my old pay. They’ve asked me to return to a 40/hour work week at a reduced rate of $13.50/hour (nearly half my prior wage), stating I’ll lose unemployment benefits if I turn them down. Most states, including California, only require you to accept “suitable work,” and part of the definition of “suitable” is that the pay is within the range of what you were earning previously. I work closely on a team of five.

Here are four updates from people who had their letters answered here in the past. I have no motivation to do my job. I didn’t see the email from Alison saying she was answering my question because I’ve been so busy at MY NEW JOB and generally being social/seeing my friends and not fretting about spending every moment of free time I have applying for jobs (because, sigh, is that exhausting on top of working a job you hate).

Employee’s boyfriend keeps making her late for work. I manage an employee, who does good work. This is fine in principle as our company has no policy on dating coworkers and they work in different departments. Over the past two months or so, my employee has been late for work nearly every day, by up to 20 minutes. We work in a department where certain tasks have to be completed by certain times, so it’s important employees are on time.

I’m a manager trying to protect my employees from this as I completely disagree. It’s true that there can be times when a manager truly does need to mandate “all hands on deck” for a certain period of time — for instance, during a product launch or leading up to the election if you’re working on a political campaign.

Ask A Manager

What should I do if I work off-site and my manager just does not like me? No joke — I was left off a brand new team which has a real career path, more money, and more responsibility because I did not use a smiley when responding to feedback one time and the manager decided that meant I was unreceptive to feedback. Is that something you should be super aware of now when you communicate online and/or work off site? My thought is: Go do some of the work I’ve put off.

The main reason I want to leave here is because there is not enough work for me to do, which makes it quite boring (but well-paid and with great office hours). Legally, you’re required to pay them for all time worked, whether they clocked it or not.

But it DOES have a policy where you get a 10 minute break for every 4 hours you work, and a half hour for every 6 hours you work (it amounts to a break every 2 hours, more or less).
