need some advice from fellow working peeps
Been working in my company for a year and thinking to change job. Applied to a bigger company without much expectations but ended up being granted an interview session.
HR wants me to start ASAP if I pass the interview.
I am feeling slightly hesitant. My company only has a one-month notice period and that means the earliest I can start with them is in mid-November or early December. This means that I will have to forfeit my AWS.
Just wondering if there is any way to nicely tell the interviewer that I am only keen to start in January after collecting AWS ?
Or perhaps can I use my AWS to negotiate for higher salary? Would really appreciate some advice!!”
Here are what netizens think:
- Can be done. I made the mistake of not mentioning and end up forfeiting my bonus for nothing then I know in big mnc this can be discussed with the HR. Just state ur concern to HR as this is a common issue. Request to start at a later date and mentioned it’s due to was. If hiring manager insist on starting immediately negotiate for a higher base salary in order to recover the loss (estimate say recover in 3 to 5 months). Anyway it’s just one month bonus, think in long term, if the company has better prospect in progression just go even if they say no to the options above (not likely for experience position, normally should have room to negotiate). Money will surely roll in later if prospect is good.
- Ask if your new company can buy in (ie. Pay your forfeiture sum when you don’t serve notice)
- If they need your expertise badly and they can’t find anyone else, then they will have to wait for you or compensate your loss. Depends on how hot you are…
