Welcome To The Big Leagues

So you got through the interview. What happens next? If you’re lucky, you might get a job offer – and we want you to be ready! In this episode we talk about the process of negotiating for your first job. How should you start preparing (you’re gonna start preparing, right?) Who do you negotiate with and what do they actually want? What kinds of things can you ask for, and how should you ask for them? How do you handle exploding deadlines (boo!) and multiple offers (yay!)? We share our experiences on how to approach this important step in launching your career.
