I am looking forward to an upcoming job interview. I have been cultivating my relationship with this organization for a couple of years.
I initially applied for a team lead role, but was approached for a senior contributor role. The salary puts me back in the early career professional range (and the team lead role's salary is in the same range as well).
This could be a better role for me to enter the organization, learn new skills, and contribute with my proven experience.
The organization's work is aligned with my interests, and this role is designed as work-from-home, which is a big a plus for me.
Any tips for the negotiations conversation (if I get the offer) while maintaining a positive relationship? Thanks in advance for your insights.
