How do I convince my employer to let me go from full-time to part-time?

I plan on leaving my current job to pursue making art for a living before summer is out. This means my wonderful, supportive wife and I will be dependent on her salary alone until I can get all that sweet, sweet art lucre flowing. This will be a sustainable situation, but won't necessarily be an ideal one. I'd like to attempt to ask to go from full-time salaried to part-time salaried, for some added financial peace of mind. I am not sure how to best approach my manager about this. [more inside]

I engaged in PREPARATORY_ACTIVITY for this?!

I originally did a few phone interviews at BIG_COMPANY for a management role related to my Ph.D. in SCIENTIFIC_FIELD. The recruiter at BIG_COMPANY is instead offering me an onsite interview for a much more tedious non-management role — with the intention of "ideally" "probably" assigning me some direct reports over time and eventually transitioning me into the management role I originally applied for. Jobs in SCIENTIFIC_FIELD are scarce, I belong to an underemployed visible minority group, and I feel like I can't afford to walk away. Help me negotiate effectively instead. [more inside]

Asking for a large raise shortly after receiving a large raise

I've been working for a company for two years. About four months ago, I was offered a very large pay increase. I was told it would be between 25-40%. At the time, I was being paid much below market and the company was having lots of trouble hiring people for my position. Unfortunately, after some internal politics, the company ended up only giving me 20%. [more inside]

How to negotiate salary mid-career?

I am interviewing for a new job. I'm a mid-career professional with 15 years of experience in my field. I've made the second round of interviews at three different organizations. I expect a job offer from at least one, possibly two of these places. I have NO IDEA how to negotiate a salary offer when it comes, and most of the advice I've found is geared to new college graduates, not people with more experience. How do I do this? [more inside]

I'd love to work here...in two months.

I have an interview tomorrow. I had a phone interview that went well enough that they’ve asked me to meet other people on the team in person. The job seems like a good fit for my skills and based on what I’ve learned so far, I’d like the job. The issue: I’ve planned a month-long trip for July. [more inside]
