I get this one a lot. "Coach, I’m getting stock [or RSUs, ISOs, PIUs, Phantom, etc. etc.] as part of my compensation package. How do I value this? How do I gauge what the right amount is?" FYI…that’s Restricted Stock Units, Incentive Stock Options, Profit Interest Units, Phantom Stock (yes, it’s a thing) and several other variations of stock-ish ty…

Today, I’m running through the “You’re overqualified,” scenario which, unfortunately, all-too-many job seekers hear. I mean, if they think this, why are they even talking to you? It’s a veiled concern about your fit or salary or whatever. We all know it. But, does that mean we need to throw in the towel? You know I’m all about the art of the possib…

Every week, I meet individually with 15-18 people to help them with their job searches, interviews, and salary negotiations. Inevitably, I get questions such as… “Coach, I had this interview. The recruiter talked the entire time. Didn’t ask me a single question. What should I have done?” “Andy, the interviewer started the interview with ‘What quest…

Many want it. The good life. The few. They want the great life. The rest. What’s left. You guessed it. They pursue heights so high most people dismiss them as unattainable. Whichever group you’re in, I know you’ll eventually pursue some personal Mount Everest. You know the one I’m talking about. The one that, somewhere along the climb, makes you qu…

It’s still January, which means technically I’m trending if I talk about goal setting. Are you achieving yours? Goals that is? I’m not really a goal-setter per se, as much as I strive to be an accomplish-er. And, I guess now that I’ve written that previous sentence and am too lazy to go back and change it, I’ll just correct it here... I have never …

Today, I’m decoding job descriptions. If you’re wondering what that entails, that’s me doing some Andy x-ray vision and taking a run at predicting the future (interview, salary negotiation, etc.) simply by seeing a job description.

Lemme ask ya. Is there anything more confusing than job titles when it comes to job searching and your career planning? I think not. Have you ever wondered… Do job titles matter? Does anyone care?

The title …

“An object in motion is easier to redirect than a stationary one.” I’m sure I made up that quote sometime in my teens during one of my endless semesters of physics. I’m sure I’m not the first person to have that thought. I’m also sure it’s the end of the year. That means many job-seekers are either tired of searching or hesitating or reluctant to g…

Enjoy this podcast with salary negotiation tips for independent contractors. The tips work for everyone, but you know me.

I wanted to bring you a nice, tight, powerful, perspective-filled video on how to approach a situation when an employer gives you a job offer below the advertised salary range. You might be thinking what gives? That is certainly one way to look at it. Not the only way of course. What happened? Any of a number of things. What can you do? Any of a nu…

Expected salary is ridiculous. Budgeted salary…sillier still. Just like advertised salary, unadvertised salary, and the-salary-we-hope-to-pay salary. How do I know this? Let’s see... Negotiated over 600 employment agreements and salaries as an executive recruiter. Wait. There’s more. Of the more-than 3,000 people I’ve personally coached as an inter…

Sometimes you (think you’ve) hit a wall. There’s a person you’re speaking to and they just don’t want to pay you any more salary. Before you come to my Live Office Hours show and ask me what to do, I want you to ask yourself a question… “Can this person actually approve more compensation for me?” Essentially, is this someone who can say “No,” but c…

I’ve seen a lot of unhappy people in my day. Some happy ones of course. Some. Not enough. I’ll add to my pile a boat-load of indifferent people. These round-about numbers make me sad. If you’re indifferent or unhappy, I’d like to help you get happy. Let’s do that in today’s talk. That’s what today’s lesson is. A little talk. It’s not an 8-stepper w…

Your resume is a marketing document, not a work history document. Yes, you use your work history to market yourself, but 99.9% of the people I’ve encountered do it the wrong way. In my work history, for example, I’ve helped companies earn likely billions of dollars. I’ve built project management methodologies. I’ve built enough tools for 10 lifetim…

I’m an open-minded person. BUT, if you want to convince me there is any faster route to getting a job interview, and ultimately an offer, other than boss hunting, you better come armed. It makes no difference whether you’re a recent college graduate like Venkata (the hero in today’s lesson) or a seasoned pro. Top to bottom and every which way in be…

Ever have trouble remembering your job interview answers? Actually, my real question to you is, “Why are you trying to remember your job interview answers?” My mind is like a steel trap and I’d never consider trying to remember all the words it takes to give you a (live-show) lesson. That’s just too much stuff. Not to mention, if I memorized it, I’…

I once had a client who would say to me, “But, Andy, I’m really bad at predicting the future.” She was referring to her ability to hire the right engineers for her company. She’d say they sounded great in the interviews. Then, she’d notice, after they were hired, they didn’t really have the traits she thought they did. This works both ways. Job can…

Need some interrogation methods on evaluating your potential boss? Like, trying to figure out whether you'll be dealing with a micro-manager?

I’ve got an Andy-d…

There’s Mount Olympus Mons. The tallest mountain in the solar system. True. Or, if you haven’t been to Mars to climb that doozie, perhaps you wanna hike up Mount Everest here on Earth.

Can you just tell me what you want so I can eliminate you from this wonderful position because I can’t satisfy your needs? Good. Grief. Why do employer’s ask stupid questions. Maybe, if I was going easy on them, I’d ask, “Why do employers not ask questions the right way?” I mean, the way that’d yield the actual info they need to make a good decisio…

Ever want to dig into how a company actually operates? As in, how they truly behave? That’d be a good thing to do if you’re job interviewing, I’d think.

Got asked a great question a few weeks back at Live Office Hours. The person asked if he should stay at his company or transition every 3-4 years. He has aspirations of being a CEO at some point in the future and was wondering whether the variety or longevity would better position him. Have you ever wondered this? You might be thinking, well, Andy,…

When interviewing with a senior executive, you need to be ready for different types of encounters. Whether the interviewer asks you, “What questions do you have for me?” or “Why should be hire you?” or “How will you make us a better company?” or “Tell me how you did that project?” the good ol’ storytelling tactics you typically use to explain your …

What’s up with “TESTS” in job interviews? As if job interviews aren’t rough enough, why, for the love of all that is holy, would employers push us job seekers over the edge with tests? These “tests” come in all shapes and sizes. Most of them are ridiculous, but, since I don’t universally run hiring for the world, we’ll need to deal with them. (Feel…
