How do I negotiate a good salary if I’m unemployed?
Hi guys. I was pivoted out of Amazon last month (around March 12). I took the severance package and then took a short break to travel around the world.
I realize that being unemployed will set put me in a precarious position for salary negotiation and that I’ll get low balled. However, I’ve read several comments on blind from people that said they were also unemployed that managed to get good salaries by negotiating offers.
How does one pull this off? I feel incredibly dumb for not negotiating my end date with HR when I had the PIVOT option as I was emotionally in turmoil at the time but I was so tired of the place that I knew the PIVOT was coming and still did nothing.
Is all hope lost for my next job offer TC? Please help. I’ve been stressed out thinking about this.
