3 Key Tips for Getting an ER InterviewBack when I was applying for ER associate positions, I was really struggling. Only a handful of positions per year opened in my industry, so I got very good at making the most of each application. I got to the point where if there was an opening, I had a 50% chance or better of landing the... 50 1 month 3 weeks

I think most of you seem to be underestimating...I think most of you seem to be underestimating the tax cut. It should be pretty meaningful for most people on here except for the high school and college kids. See this tax bill calculator from the *NYT* as a back of the envelope guesstimate: https://nytimes.com/interactive/2017/12/17/... 31 3 days 44 min

So the other guy got pissed, sped up, and purposefully cut him off. Seen it a million times...wasn't expecting anything. Then, I got to a stoplight with both of these bozos in front of me. The guy in the... 21 3 days 3 hours

If you're staying until 1 a.m. there is very little chance you will be called to do something major past that hour. In a way, you rarely get called in during the weekday since you're at the office all the time anyway. The most common scenarios is... 5 5 days 1 hour

So, I take that $10K in savings from paying an analyst less and instead of giving myself $810K this year, I put $10K in my reserves for the... 66 1 week 1 day
Good points and along those lines, I think...Good points and along those lines, I think another issue to consider is whether you want to want to work for a firm that has begun its relationship with you by negotiating in bad faith. In fact, I'd say that's more important than the salary issue. If there are reasons for the low pay like this... 66 1 week 1 day

That's why I specifically said to them that the base wasn't a deal breaker and I just needed a few days to think about the position. Furthermore, I listed all the things that I liked about the position which was a... 66 1 week 2 days

Was in a similar situation in my first analyst role. Was offered $60K base. I knew that I would accept the role as my goal was to just get a foot in door. Nonetheless, the base... 66 1 week 2 days
