My LinkedIn Offer Letter, How To Speed Negotiate?
Looking for some advice on the next steps in the process after I received my offer letter, details below. SWE, 1.5 YoE, no competing offers.
I need to start negotiations immediately. I already have the numbers that I would sign with. How do you start negotiations? Schedule a call with the recruiter to talk about the offer? Send an email with your request?
Do you immediately tell them your ideal numbers or play cute and let them come up with the first advancement numbers?
The holiday season is making things a bit difficult. The start dates can either be December 16th or January 13th. I would HIGHLY prefer December 16th as LinkedIn has a company wide paid shutdown from December 23 - January 2 and my current employer only gives 2 days off. Because of this I have until December 3, AT THE LATEST, to sign the offer and put in my two weeks notice. Thats next Tuesday. Is it possible to negotiate in this small time frame? Would it be wiser to just push my start date til January to allow for more time/possible money?
