Darla’s contact said that an offer would be to her in two days and now it was day three. Had they changed their mind and decided against hiring her? How long should she wait to call her contact? What if they tried to reduce their verbal offer? She felt like she was at the mercy of the company where she had interviewed.
We discussed options such as, what if she were to send a draft offer to her contact that included exactly what she wants from the job? That discussion put her back in charge of her career.
Truth is, she never sent a draft offer. Her contact called her first. There was a back and forth conversation about salary and benefits. Feeling in charge of her career she was able to hold her ground.
Where do you need to take charge of your career?
