My search is a little slower than most since I'm being difficult and insisting on a remote position using a different part of my skillset.
I also figured out that I should edit my current title on my resume. It seems that it was not helping and making me sound way too senior.
I'm not usually one to bitch, but I also have the strong feeling that since this skillset I'm trying to use is in a very male dominated part of sales, I may have gotten blown off by a few orgs who value sales bro-ness. But anyway...
I put my resume up on Dice a few months ago, and it's been a constant stream of recruiters with jobs that sometimes have absolutely nothing to do with my skill set. I only figured out a few weeks ago that I should make a sport out of responding with "Thanks for the email, I'm not interested in this, but here's what I am looking for with my updated resume." I have been literally copying and pasting the response several times each day.
It's gotten a little better, and finally today I got an email for a subcontracting job that sounds half interesting with a tech company we all know. I don't care per se about longevity there as I'd probably keep my job search going anyway. (Of note, the company is known to fuck employees to manipulate the stock price.) I just want to buy some time in a different skillset while working remotely.
Here's the question: It's a W2 job with the subcontractor. The recruiter asked for my rate. I know the typical salary for the position at the company via glassdoor. Can I ask for that level of compensation? Or, because I'd be going through a subcontractor, it's assumed I'd be getting less cash?
That is all...
