S2 E5: Negotiate that Job Offer! Get Paid!

We get it. It was work. Interview after interview trying to convince people that you won't suck. And it worked.

The phone rings and your future boss tells you what the company thinks you're worth. The salary offer. Now what? Do you have a plan? Well, you should.

Keith and Carl, having both given and received many job offers, share with you a multi-step plan to maximize your value during the negotiation process. Don't leave money on the table! While this is a big day for you, just know that for the hiring manager and HR, it's another "to do" on their list.

Also in this episode, Keith and Carl discuss tiny houses, awkward propositions from strangers and the hottest side hustles to make you rich. Be prepared to smirk while you work!

About the Podcast

Work Shorts
Comedic, yet real, stories about work, life and friendship with Keith Coleman and Carl Spande
Keith and Carl are marketing gurus and managers, bonded together by their adjacent cubicles. Together, they explore the absurdities of work and life by questioning corporate America and their life experiences that got them there.

Follow along as Keith and Carl humorously force a new friendship. Each episode includes a section called, "Keith and Carl Become Friends", the hosts will ask each other a mystery personal question. Their unscripted responses will shed light into their personalities, behavior and motivations. It gets real!

The heart of the show will center around a "Work Short Topic of the Day". Keith and Carl will explore various topics while providing their possibly misguided perspectives and interpretations, often a result of their perverse, yet oddly relate-able, childhood and young adult experiences.

Co-creator, writer & host of Work Shorts. Speaking of shorts... The older I get, the higher shorts sit on my thigh and with considerably less pockets. While less functional, I've been told they are more fashionable. A tanner thigh is cool, too, I suppose.
