gulp

Tomorrow morning I'm having a *chat* with another mag that likes my work and has emailed me to see whether I want to go and work for them. Enormously flattering but quite terrifying at the same time. They've already told me that they wouldn't be able to match my current salary. But if I do end up working for them it might just pull me out of the career cul de sac (thank you Wine Lover for that absolutely brilliant phrase) I seem to have ended up in. That said, I do of course think I'm worth every penny of my current wage so we'll see. Wish me luck!

Go for it! After all, you never know what you might find out (altho you certainly are worth every penny!!)

THAT'S what I'm in!!! A career cul de sac... I can't think of a more perfect phrase.

That being said... MUCHO luck to you. Stand firm and expect what you're worth. ASK for it. Asking never hurt anyone.

Career cul de sac = brilliance!

Hmmm... always a difficult one. Then again, things happen for a reason (I'm a FIRM believe in that!)
Good luck doll

That "We can't match your current salary" is probably just an opening gambit on their part. If they like your work and want you, they'll pay what your worth.

By the way, found my login details :D

Yes - full credit to Wine Lover for the career cul de sac phrase. Sheer brilliance - and sounds like we all know exactly what it means!
