This is for EVERYONE.
Let’s try something new today.
You have been looking for a job for a while.
Your best friend of 5 years:
… hooked you up with a job at his start up company of 1 year.
He is the CEO and got you a good entry level position.
You started doing such a good job, that 6 months later, you got:
35,000 bonus + 50% raise
Better title (just within the company)
Paid 2 week vacation
Word spread of how well you did in the company and it got to the ears of his rival company….
Meet the rival CEO:
He is very impressed with what he heard of your skills.
He wants you on his team and will stop at nothing to have you sign on the dotted lines.
He met with your over dinner and wanted you to come work for his company.
His company has been in business for many years (4+) and has been featured in Black Enterprise and Forbes.
Working for him includes:
100,000 signing bonus + 75% raise
Private jet access + car service
Bigger Title (more clout)
Option to leave half days on Friday
Paid month vacation
Instant health benefits (no 6 month wait)
But, do you stay with your best friend at his company and remain loyal?
OR, do you move to the rival company and get more pay + perks,
ultimately losing your best friend?
