So let’s do this:
They got a coder job fresh out of school at a small-ish company that didn’t pay too well. After almost a year, they realized they could do better at other places and no promotions were in sight. Time to move jobs.
Then the startup is told that was their offer, knows ranges at big corp, so they now think the value of their candidate is junior dev level, plummeting from what the first impression was. Maybe they’re not that good!
Well, crap. That’s no good.
- Work on your public perceived value. Don’t talk about college, don’t talk about dates, just talk about what you know. You CAN have income grow very fast.
- Perceived value is a marketing skill. Marketing skills make you money. Learn them.
Go forth and make more money, friends. 💛
Value is *perceived* and perception is fuzzy & biased. We are human.
Business people have jobs for a reason & I want you to learn those skills
