Negotiating is tough.

New jobs are exciting. New people, new routines, new places. New skills, new challenges, new adventures.

Negotiating contracts on the other hand is not exciting.

It makes my skin itch and my stomach sweat.

I asked for more money, and they did give me some. That was nice. Now I want them to define the non-compete clause, because it is really quite vague and I worry that it would be overly restrictive without any further clarification.

Itchy, itchy, itcchhyyy

This is my second contract negotiation, and in the first, well, I just signed it.

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
