Job Offers - How To Tell Your Boss You’re Hot

An article by Medine Simmons  -  24 August 2010  -  2005 Comments

Fabulous, how flattering. Someone outside the company thinks you’re hot and has offered you a job. How do you handle it?

Fabulous, how flattering. Someone outside the company thinks you’re hot and has offered you a job. How do you handle it?

  1. Spend lots of time in the bathroom negotiating?
  2. Slap the news on the grapevine and wait for the boss to react?
  3. Drop a sharp hint next time management falls short?

There’s a much smarter way to ensure this is a win-win situation for you.

  1. Summon your most relaxed manner – you’re going to tell the boss.
  2. Should you feel the urge to flaunt your fabulousness, gobble it.
  3. Don’t get attached to the outcome. Take the emotion – whoooosh! – right out of it.

Let’s say you’ve been approached by your old company. Things have changed over there and there’s a great new role for you. They’re offering more money and an office with a door that closes. Pretty sweet, actually.

But like we said, things have changed. You’re wise to the company’s weaknesses, politics and you know that business inside out. It’s not quite the invigorating bell curve you’d like in a new gig, and besides, your old buddies have all moved on. So there are good things about the offer, and average things.

Even if you edge toward declining the offer, you still need to tell your boss you’re being poached. Why?

Because you’re a Hot Egg and they should know it!

The key is HOW you tell them. Memorise this:

  1. I will not be smug.
  2. I will not gloat.
  3. I will state the facts as a reason.
  4. I will make a calm, relaxed, reasonable request.
  5. I will wait for a response.

Try these on for size:

You: Tony from Xerox rang me today. He’s offering a senior position with a Pay Rise.

Could we look at the same for me here?

Waiting……

Boss: Okay, I’ll have to see what I can swing and get back to you.

OR

You: You know that competitor we love to hate but secretly admire, they’ve offered me a $10,000 raise. Would you be prepared to meet them half way?

Waiting…

Boss: How about we agree on $2,500 for now and discuss the rest in September?

The thing is, no matter how flattering a job offer can be, or how much extra money they’re offering, it’s still a new job with a whole new settling-in period and a bunch of stuff to learn, right from where the best coffee is, down to who the real decision makers are. Then there’s the huge effort of having to prove your worth all over again.

It’s worth running that job offer by your boss in a pleasant, straightforward kind of way, because it elevates your status in their eyes and you learn exactly where you sit with the company before you take another leap.

Have you ever been poached? How did it go?
