well that's just, like, your opinion, man
I know many on this board (myself included) really liked aspects of Grantland. Think what you will about Simmons and shark-jumping, but that website produced a lot of really good reads on sports and other stuff (and yes, it produced some crap). I thought it was great that so many younger writers were given free reign and did well. I never thought I'd be reading MTVNews, but so many former Grantlanders whose work I enjoy eneded up there.
Simmons didn't get the whole band back together, but his new website https://theringer.com/ is now live. It looks like most of the content isn't sports related yet (EDIT: The current main article is politics related, FYI), but it'll be intersting to see where this goes.
Based on our advice thread from last week we've got lots of knowledgeable car folks on the board here. Do you have car-related questions? These could be things from "What's a car" to "We're having another kid and thinking of a bigger vehicle, anyone on the board drive X/Y/ or Z?" or things like "What kind of mileage do drivers of X get in the real world?" or "Do i need to use premium?"
I can't promise you'll get good answers, I can't promise the answers will be funny, but maybe we'll get a few of both?
I'm required to take company legal compliance courses and I thought, what better way to spend time on a Friday afternoon before a holiday. As I was mundanely clicking next, next, next..I suddenly saw this image:
Thank you Michigan fan working at stock photography company. You made my day.
After years of working at non-profits and local government I decided to look at private companies, make a jump if something interesting is presented. I have two offers right now, potentially three. Excuse my ignorance but I think there are folks on this board who have been through this situation a number of times. If it helps job titles are Senior Data Analyst and Data Scientist.
Should you always ask for more money? Are recruiters expecting a counter offer?
I have two little ones at home, it would be great to work four ten hour days and spend one day at home with them. Should I ask for this in lieu of more money or just ask for both?
How do you leverage one offer against another? I feel uncomfortable doing this but I’ve heard this is the thing to do when you have the opportunity.
I’d like to negotiate the start date and give myself a week off to chill. Is putting off the start date four weeks a legitimate ask?
I feel like I know the answers to these questions but I'm nervous about commiting to a response. Any help is appreciated.
