About working with Recruiters

<t>The problem I've most commonly experienced when working through a recruiter is a compensation disconnect between myself, and the hiring company/manager/hr. The recruiter asks, "what is your current compensation, and what do you expect to receive in a future position?" I give them the numbers. I d...

Move to Tokyo, still doable?

A little motivational music - you can put this in your head while asking.

what's the point of working high-tech if they all make you sign restrictive covenants and the like?

<t>Line item veto. Initial and date. Don't sign anything that 'owns' you. Double check everything you may be asked to sign while employed even things that are seemingly innocuous -- like say when you receive an HR manual. If you sign it is either binding, or enough to keep you in court long enough t...

Full Time Salary to Contracting Rate

<t>In the US you'll need to know if it is W2 or 1099. You'll be paying extra taxes directly if it is 1099. With a day rate you probably aren't going to be billing overtime, from there it should be pretty easy to estimate. If you take the same amount of vacation, then to break even, you'll probably n...

non-commital job ad

<t>I'll raise a similar question - noncommittal salary/bonus. I have a friend who came into a job after statements in an interview indicating she would make the same as her previous job (total comp). Her first year was a partial year, and she accepted a slightly lower bonus percentage given it was a...

Relocation package UK

<t>It seems to be getting more difficult to negotiate relocation/signing/guarantees. There are so many candidates on the market who will start at next to nothing with a loose unwritten promise. In addition, they will without reading sign the most gnarly non-compete agreements ever contrived. It is a...
