Ten Rules for Negotiating a Job Offer

Haseeb, I didn’t see the viral story about your offers and I’m unfamiliar with your blog, but after reading your original post, I find you enormously compelling as a writer. It sounds to me like Airbnb is a winning company because they are able to spot engineers who also bring a full stack of soft skills to the table – I hate that term, by the way – such as empathy, curiousity and self knowledge. I still have real concerns about the company in other ways, but it’s great to hear a story of them spotting talent this way. (I only hope female engineers have the same experiences there! Studies have shown that women who don’t negotiate receive less, but women who do negotiate are at risk of having their offers retracted and/or being perceived negatively.)
