36. #Hired: Negotiate or Bust

Show Notes | May 19, 2020 | Episode 036

Negotiation takes a lot of patience and persistence. It can be challenging to push through the application process and to keep the momentum going. Often we find ourselves taking the first offer that’s extended to us just so that we can get back into the workforce. 

VirtForce member Laura joins us to share her #hired story. She is here to encourage, inspire, and remind you that patience is critical when looking for your next #remote opportunity. Laura talks about how difficult it was to make it to the last round of an interview process and then not be selected. However, not getting selected for that position allowed her to become the top candidate for another fantastic job. Laura was able to not only negotiate her salary but also negotiate a partially remote position into a fully remote opportunity. 

Tune in now to hear how VirtForce founder and podcast host Kimber helped Laura negotiate the role of a lifetime!
