Good morning SOTGC readers. Here is a video interview with my mentor, Jeremy Laynor, who is the Global Vice President of Sales for FatCloud. Jeremy was the Regional Business Director for the California region when he hired me in 2008 with Salient Surgical Technologies. Before his time at Salient he was a Regional Business Manager (managing three states) for a division of Cardinal Health. After the acquisition of Salient last year, Jeremy moved to FatCloud to head their sales division.
Since Jeremy has sat on both sides of the table of the negotiation of salaries, I felt this would be a good topic for us to address. If you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can address these in upcoming interviews with Jeremy.
– Timing is everything and extra curricular efforts at work are key when asking for a raise
– Do your research into what is going on with your industry trends and your own company landscape
– It’s OK to ask in the beginning stages about compensation plan when interviewing with a company.
If it isn’t what aligns with your needs, no need to waste your or their time further
