Standards, you guys

Have them. And be honest and open about what you need to be happy and thrive in a job.

I got a call about a job that is actually willing to negotiate–not just to increase the scope of the position to include more interesting responsibilities, but also to consider offering a better salary and benefits. They said that my interview “opened up a lot of possibilities” for them in terms of conceiving of the role. This is extremely flattering. I am really touched, and excited.

And I told them exactly what my bottom line was and what benefits I expected to be offered.

This is the first time this had happened in 6.5 months. But I am happy that it has happened even the one time.

PS. They also said they might be interested in hiring me as a consultant, if they can’t put the right package together for me. Isn’t that awesome? My consulting practice begins! Yay!
