    I'm not in the contract space, so I'll defer.

    anytime a recruiter tries to sell me on an 'urgent job opening' is an immediate nonstarter

    gives me the impression that the company/team is desperate and I'd be working alongside bad employees they hired on a whim

    Pro tip: Recruiters saying 'urgent opening' 90% of the time means it's urgent for the Recruiter.

    From my understanding the corp rate is what the agency gets and the w2 rate is what I get

    the Corp rate is higher because they skim off the top. The company might pay the agency $100/hr but the worker only gets $80/hr

    That's strange. In my experience they ask how much you want and tell the client your fully loaded rate which includes their commission. You'd say I need $80/hr and they'd tell the company $100

    Even from a hiring side when we talk about “rate” for the position we are talking about net to the contractor. We have fixed margins with our major contracting firms and it’s always assumed.

    Anyone work in Construction as a project manager or superintendent? Looking to go back to school and earn my bachelors in Construction Management. Curious what a typical day might look like, job market, thoughts on the program you went through, school workload, etc. Feel free to PM me.

    One of my Business Partners is a Construction Recruiter. He seems to be killing it right now where my industry, and many other industries, are in flux. He focuses in working specifically with Supers & Project Managers, so it seems to be a hot field within an in-demand sector currently.

    Had several friends graduate in Construction Management in college. Just about the entire class leaves with a job lined up months before graduation. My one good friend works in NYC building new skyscrapers. Decently long days as he lives outside of the city, but makes very good money doing it.

    This page should give a little more information:

    I’ve been in construction management for about 9 years now. No degree just worked in the field and kinda learned everything. Looking at actually getting my degree in it though as some companies want the degree despite the years of experience.

    Furloughed indefinitely along with everyone else in the company. And CEO said when everyone returns that hours, roles, and compensation will likely change for everyone so I’m not sure if the job will even make sense for me whenever I can return.

    The job was pretty clearly a scam. They were asking me to buy a bunch of software and offered me $45.12 an hour for data entry. No one pays anywhere close to that much for data entry, nor do they require you to buy Apple Final Cut Pro for a data entry job after telling you that you need a Windows machine.

    Is anyone in the process of relocating for a job? I need to move (and sell my condo) but have no real idea how to do that in the time of coronavirus. I can't donate anything, my family isn't super willing to come over and take things that they'd ordinarily want, etc. and i would need to find a place virtually.

    I'm not relocating personally, but I have several friends in real estate. Things have certainly slowed down, but you can still visit houses (with precautions) and offers are being made/accepted. I would reach out to a recommended realtor in the area, I'm sure they have ways to accomplish all of that. Will just be more of a pain in the ass.

    She was probably like 40. And only the second and third floor was a house. It’s one of those developments where businesses are on the first floor and residences are above them.

    And I just saw a job posting with a requirement of a masters degree and they were only paying a max of $12 an hour. I can probably go to a damn grocery store and get that kind of money as an entry level associate around here these days...

    So Corona has been pretty eventful for the TTYall family.

    The medical group that I've spent the last 3+ years growing from a mom and pop into a legitimate company has shuttered its doors from rona and may not reopen.

    I furloughed over 150 staff and I am also unpaid / potentially out of a job.

    In other news, the QSR franchise we were approved for has been put on indefinite hold.

    Luckily I've been working with some friends on a real estate venture that we were doing for fun that now is my full time focus. We just secured significant capital in the form of debt, and we'll be opening up an office within the month. The potential returns if this works are insane.

    does anybody have some tips on negotiating salary after an offer has been presented? i am responding back Monday on an initial offer made to me last Thursday. while a good opportunity that I am excited about, it represents a bit of a change career path wise and also a reduction of salary. benes are solid so I don't plan on countering there (or if that's even possible?) but I'd like to get the salary number back to at least what I was making previously. difference is about $5k, publicly traded bank in Charlotte, NC. it wouldn't be a deal breaker if we can't get the number up but i want to at least try. this would be just the second org i've work with in the last 12 years, so i haven't been through the ropes of being an external candidate for quite some time. positioning/language tips would be appreciated :beerchug:

    Not sure what you’re looking for outside of ask for what you want. $5k isn’t much and likely within the range they’re allowed to offer you. You’re probably getting offered well below what they can extend anyways.

    Also unsure what you could negotiate benefits wise unless I’m missing something. If it’s a full time role they should start Day 1.

    Not sure if you are applying to a bigger company or a small business with a handful of employees, but I’ll give my opinion.

    im a sbo with Only 3 employees looking to hire a 4th for almost a year now. The fact that you’ve got 12 years under your belt at current spot will speak volumes to someone like me or a big biz. It is so hard to find not only good employees but even moreso that want to put roots down and stay if they are treated well.

    for me, for someone that is coming off of 12 years, 5k is a very reasonable ask. It equates to a little under 2.50 per hour and I could easily justify that with a 90 day trial period of a touch less per hour.

    not sure if that helps, but I hope so. BOL.

    Good luck, dude! It's a little late now, but I would've suggested asking for $6500 for two reasons;

    1. Companies like to feel like they win in negotiations. If you asked for $5000, they may offer $4000. If you ask for $6500, they may offer $5000. It makes them feel good.
    2. If they get $5000 because that's what you asked for, there is a chance you think, "well shit, I should've asked for more. How much money did I leave on the table?"

    If they hit your number, make sure you accept. If they hit your number and you say, "well actually, can we get a little more?" they could get pissed.

    i'm more on the client-facing side, so unfortunately not the big bucks when it comes to working for a bank. and i will say this particular role isn't exactly what i was looking for when i left my previous firm. still, feel very blessed to pick up an offer with a company i think highly of during a pandemic. close up the resume gap and keep all my licenses intact, i'll still be snooping on the side in case something a little bit closer to my desired career track opens up ...
