I received an employment offer today from a reinsurance firm in Philadelphia. About this I am happy as I both like the firm and reinsurance. Once I received the offer, I forwarded the details of it to another firm who was trying to hire me but was having trouble getting a package through their HR department. This is when I learned four words that I didn’t expect to hear: “We can beat that”.
I don’t think I’ll take the counter-offer, but it make feel good.
