I hate negotiating for myself. Its a weird, weird thing: I can coach others, I am great in a negotiation as an advocate for anyone else. I mean I was a winning debator, I have the skills and have not lost them
EXCEPT when it comes for MYSELF.
Negotiating job offer. I just want to get an offer that makes me EXCITED to take a job. Not lukewarm, not feeling like I settled, but one which makes me feel like I AM SETTLED. One that makes me thrilled to feel I am valued for my hard work and dedication.
I also know I get ALOT of work done.
Once I learn the ropes I tend to be exceptional and valued
I have learned temperance
I still work on not being overly excited and irritating others with interruptions. That type A thing..
Back to work.
Lunch hour spent driving home and updating one thing on application, and calls negotiating salary.
I hope the final offer that comes in makes me SMILE and not feel like I have settled.
I hope I am not asking for too much.
This will make it a long day.
I AM Enjoying THAT part of the job!
