"I love Nick's new Keep Your Salary Under Wraps. It worked for me. Nick gave me the same advice that's in the book when I was negotiating a job offer several years ago. Despite both the headhunter and the company insisting I disclose what I was getting paid at my old job, I stuck to my guns and I was able to DOUBLE my salary. Plus I got a signing bonus. That would have never happened in a million years if I had caved!"
"Nick Corcodilos is the brutally honest, forthright and insightful headhunter who serves up tough love
to job seekers while taking job boards and others to the woodshed."
