I am a student working a BO internship at a large European bank and I have received an internship offer to start part-time unpaid immediately at an investment fund in my desired market.


This offer is 100% more attractive to me than the BO one but I have three major problems: 

  1. Internship start and end dates will overlap; the investing internship is part-time and will ramp up next semester when my work finishes but there is still that tiny overlap where I am FT in BO role and PT in investing role

Junior level.

I was not selected in the work visa lottery and have to leave the US. I am moving to an office of the firm in another country. Unfortunately, that office's offer is to start a month from yesterday, which seems too soon for the following reasons -

Caught a misdemeanor DUI charge about a year ago, against which I am still fighting in court with expectations for resolution, one way or the other, by July. I am currently employed and licensed with FINRA. Both organizations, i.e. my current employer and FINRA, are aware of the charges. However, I was recently offered another job. I have not been asked any questions about my criminal background, whether on the initial application, as apart of the background check consent form, or post-offer application. How should I proceed with addressing the charge with this prospective employer?

How to Negotiate A Job Offer

Hi Andrew, In case this is of value to WSO, my HBR article on “15 Rules for Negotiating a Job Offer” just went online. I thought it may be of interest to your readers/members/visitors.

Job-offer negotiations are rarely easy. Consider three typical scenarios:

  • You’re in a third-round interview for a job at a company you like, but a firm you admire even more just invited you in. Suddenly the first hiring manager cuts to the chase: “As you know, we’re considering many candidates. We like you, and we hope the feeling is mutual. If we make you a competitive offer, will you accept it?”
  • You’ve received an offer for a job you’ll enjoy, but the salary is lower than you think you deserve. You ask your potential boss whether she has any flexibility. “We typically don’t hire people with your background, and we have a different culture here,” she responds. “This job isn’t just about the money. Are you saying you won’t take it unless we increase the pay?”
  • You’ve been working happily at your company for three years, but a recruiter has been calling, insisting that you could earn much more elsewhere. You don’t want to quit, but you expect to be compensated fairly, so you’d like to ask for a raise. Unfortunately, budgets are tight, and your boss doesn’t react well when people try to leverage outside offers. What do you do?

I interned this past summer with a reputable MM firm in NYC. I received a return-offer with the firm and signed it this week. A few days after signing, I received an invitation for a superday with a BB that I would much rather work for. The superday is next week and I plan on attending.

Got two job offers, both are for Credit Analyst. One is a smaller bank, $60b in assets, another from a large bank (SBA) with over 1.5 trillion . They pay the same, the smaller is bonused, the larger obviously has its name, very thorough training and more volume. The smaller bank has a close nit team where i would get lots of exposure and probably make more in bonuses.
