Dear Ma'm

I am unable to understand how you"ll initiate the negotiation; when the company so far has not reverted to you ??

To be fair to you, I understand your desperation in joining a company which is :
  • good;
  • in your native place;
  • and, you are very keen to join.

But then; WHAT WILL YOU DO if the company is NOT reverting back to you ??

That is why I suggested : "Call them up or send mail, indicating your keen interest, irrespective of the salary issue."

Please INITIATE the DISCUSSION or negotiation (if you are happy with the term -"negotiation") when you are so keen to join; and the company UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES is not communicating to you.

I understand your feelings - of hope, confusion and desperation.

Your response indicates that you are confused about what to do next :
"i m ready for negociation as that compny is in my native place (they also know that) but i dont want to sound like one, i wanna go for little negotiation. What should be my move to take ball little in my court. your suggestion will be helpful as this is my first chance to go for negotiation at the same time it may be that they have started looking for other options as well."
But then instead of repeatedly seeking suggestions (which itself indicates your feeling of desperation; which is rightly pointed out by BHAVAN in his post); you should INITIATE the matter if there has been NO RESPONSE from the company.

Hope now you understand better the options left with you.

Warm regards.

Dear Sonali,

I have a bad news and good news for you. The bad news is, it over. Please stop thinking about the offer made to you and you tried negotiating.

It doesn’t work like that. A company would pay you more than offered when, you are in a position where you might be generating an exceptional amount of revenue to the company, or once in the job, you would deliver on priority projects. There is no other way any company would agree to such negotiations. For e.g.: If you are being hired as HR generalist and you hold a Six Sigma certification, you may negotiate, but the company will agree to pay more only when they require and six sigma implementation . Or else, it would be rejected.

Please, take this as learning and try for a new job. Requesting for a competitive pay to remain motivated in the job is different from showing off other existing offers to any prospective employer. You are least likely to be considered for this role. Until and unless there is no one else to join on the role and they badly need someone to work, they are least likely to come back to you.

The good news is, this have made you wiser and better. Please take this as learning. In future while discussing salary, please make sure you quote the market standard. Please avoid NEGOTIATIONS at any cost. Staying humble and requesting genuinely for a greater pay to support a career within the organization will require a lot of wisdom and maturity. If you honestly need more money than offered, please show how the benefits that you take to the company would profit them. Though most of the time, this is the last straw used for rejection. Recruiters, use this trick to check the level of motivation in the candidate, to take the offer. They are correct as it screens the truly interested candidate from the ones who are running the race to increase their salaries.

We need money for survival, but contrary to the common practise of choosing a job with a higher pay , please look for the one that gets you more exposure. At the point of role discussion look for the in-house trainings or certifications offered in the job. In the long run, the candidate with higher pay would be the first one to leave the organization during the economic cycles. Moreover, every employer prefers to hire the talent with more offering, yet at a lower pay scale. Please aim at that, to ensure you remain employable.

Dear (Cite Contribution)
I appreciate for sparing your time to highlight important aspects in recruitment. Hope Sonali is clear now.
If opinion/advise/feedback are given, the person who needed those, should analyse and take a decision rather than discussing/debating on the opinion/feedback. Nobody is going to benefitted by that exercise.
