A few weeks ago, during a podcast binge, I came across this podcast (Salary Negotiations for DevOps with Josh Doody on the Real World DevOps Podcast). I noted at the time that it was really good content with great advice… and then forgot about it. (Oh, and it’s not just for DevOps people!)
Fast forward to today, when one of the Admin Admin Podcast Listeners (in our Telegram Channel) announces that he’s just gone for a new job, had been offered it, and was thinking of taking the job… but that they’d offered him a package lower than he was hoping to receive. My response “Say you wanted more, see if they can meet you halfway!” The main thing I took away from this podcast was that by the time you’re in the interview stage, the company you’re being interviewed by is *likely* to have already paid several thousand pounds/dollars/euros to have you sat in front of them, so if they want you, they’ll probably pay that bit more to not have to go through that process again!
Anyway, this is a great podcast for anyone who works for an employer, is thinking of asking for a pay rise or is looking for a new job, and it’s well worth a listen!
