Re: job choice

Whatever, I am very happy with the new job. But I would do some negotiation in my next job hunting.

brewer12345:

You may misunderstand me. The 95K is the original Ibank offer. Now it jumped to 110K + 10k signin.

Re: job choice

So I am comparing the IBank original offer with the match up offer. It is 95K : 110K+10k signin. The range is kind of big. So conclusion is when the employer gives out the first offer, they may give a better one(in this case 15% higher) if you know how to negotiate.

Re: job choice

Today my agent called again. This time a senior manager at IBank, reporting to CIO directly, wants to talk to me.

What happened? Five years ago, I would like to take whatever job, as long as it allows me to write code. Five years later, ...

The late 90s back?

Re: job choice

I know there are some very experienced guys in the board. Please help me on this:
In the hedge fund, my main task is to prepare the data for trader/structurer, building trading/risk mamangement system with trader/risk manager. Since it is a small company, I may grab all ths skills/knowledge in three or four years.
But what's next?
Thanks,
