In this economy, the temptation is to accept the first offer. I've watched several hires negotiate salary and perks even in this job situation. Don't fold too quickly on salary and perks. Once you're inside, the raises are much slower.

Jobnob is really a swell looking site. My clients will be interested.

@Dan: Thanks for the reality check. The bad economic situation won't last forever and people need to be able to negotiate.

What a great site! Thanks for posting about it. I may one day decide to reenter the working outside the home masses and since I've been home for almost 2 years, salaries have likely changed a lot.

@Nancy: Thanks so much! I don't think salaries have changed TOO much in the last two years, it's just that the current job market is tougher with the current recession. Hope you'll hang out here with us!
