Salary is based on degree status. What do you currently make?

Give this job/boss a mulligan and review in three months?

So I took a job to change my life and industry back in January. There were extended negotiations and a massive interview process and even a couple of test (take home) that pretty much doubled as free work. In person, there was a lot of body language and communication I didn't get but I finally have now. The worst of it is, we're at the point where I said we'd renegotiate or I'd leave and now I find out it's all been blown to hell. [more inside]

How do I start salary negotiations after simply agreeing on the phone?

I was offered a job, but do to being just woken up and unsure of myself when the initial call came through, I did not try to negotiate the salary when they told me what it is over the phone. It's a bit under what I wanted and I was wondering, how do I contact them to engage in negotiations? And, once I do, how do I phrase it? I feel like I accidentally already agreed. [more inside]

Transitioning from profit to not-for-profit at 40: what's negotiable?

After a decade in for-profit marketing in a secondary city, I'm being seriously considered for something close to a dream job in Toronto. The main issue is that there'd be a major salary drop -- from CAD$75,000 a year to sub-CAD$50,000, and I'd be moving from a place where the cost of living is low, and my house is mortgage-free and paid off, to, well, Toronto. My current location is not commutable to Toronto. What can I negotiate with my (hopeful) employer to help make up the difference? [more inside]

Carribbean Cruise Negotiations

I am planning a Caribbean cruise for my wife and myself. I am using a Cruise Travel Company with a good reputation. This agency has quoted me prices for several cruises. Besides attempting to negotiate better pricing and a room upgrade, are there any other amenities I am overlooking that would further enhance this cruise? Any suggestions for this negotiation would be appreciated. Thanks in advance...
