Every day, I'm seeing a repeated meme, and I'm wondering if we we are getting to a subset where we want to try to have some sort of meta-answer or meta-question/answer set that we could start referencing for duplicates.
I see two general meta-questions that could each have their own answer thread:
1 - what is the right strategy for getting more money in a new job negotation?
2 - what is the right strategy for getting more money in my current situation?
I'm starting to see enough permutations of this general concept that it's starting to feel rather repetitive. We are working edge cases, to be sure, but I feel like we're going to narrow down on the same two answers in most cases.
Here's some examples of the questions I mean:
Case 1 - more money during job negotiation:
Case 2 - more money at existing job:
I stopped short after a while. There's many other salary-related questions that DON'T fall into this pile - I tried to skip anything that wasn't tightly tied to the negotation process.
But I'm starting to feel like we've answered the general things about valuation, negotiation, and how to bring up the conversation. Most of what I see churning up lately has been people findng edge cases that often boil down to the general answer plus "It depends" relating to the unique case.
