The Non-Offer Offer | JobSearchTV.com


I received a question from someone the painted description of what I can only think of is a non–offer offer. Do you agree with my assessment? Do you disagree?

Summary

I am doing a video today because someone described the situation to me that they wanted some advice about. I think it is something that is pertinent to more than just simply this 1 person. They wrote about doing a presentation to the CEO of a firm that judging by this person's address would require relocation. The CEO love this presentation, loved his alpproach, loved his ideas and decided from the time of his 1st meeting till now that he has a choice to make about the direction of his firm. He has decided to change the model and that requires a different team and strategy and this is completely new information to the job hunter.

The CEO clearly liked him and wants him to be involved with improving the current model which brings in cash, while considering what will be needed for the other model. To that end he asked this person to present a proposal to work for him as a contract employee to improve the current model. At the end of 60 days, he would decide whether to bring them on full time. The question is whether this is a good thing to do. Is this an okay thing for him to do? Is he using a tactic where he can eliminate me after 60 days?

Knowing that this involves relocation, you have an offer to work for him for 60 days.Actually to make a proposal to work for him for 60 days. You have an offer to bid on 2 months of work. You have a full-time situation now and I know from other parts of this note that you are not happy with it. The idea of moving for 60 days of work when you have a house of family and stuff like that while uprooting everyone doesn't seem to be very sensible.

What comes to mind as an appropriate strategy Is to say, "I am interested in being involved. Talk to me about what you think is fair for me to be involved. Please don't lowball me. If the role, you are asking me to uproot myself and my family to move out here. So what do you think is a fair price?"

2. You have to ask them this next question point blank. "After 60 days if you decide to dump this business, sell it or what have you, What happens to me?" I know the answer that question – – You're gone. The CEO has had 2 months of consulting and adios. You want him to say what he believes he will do And then from there, put it in writing. If the goal is for you to get another job, then this isn't a job. It is a non-job job offer. It is an oppirtunity to bid for a consulting assignment.

For now, there is more to find out. The big thing is what happens after 60 days If, through no fault of yours, the CEO decides,, "I'm Going to bail on the sucker. Let's shut it down." You are out of a job.. Are you okay with that? Instead, ask them what happens to you then.. I could be completely wrong (experience tells me I'm not) This to be the most honest guy in the world is not going to fire you after 60 days.

But what if he does? Is that what you want?
