Title: Curriculum Designer

Situation: Jake finished his Master’s in Educational Technology and was eager for more pay. When he updated his LinkedIn profile his manager wondered if he wanted to leave. He loved the company and his coworkers, so he wanted to stay.

Strategy: Instead of launching a job search, we created a new position at a higher level within his current company. He sold it to his boss, explaining how new technology could save training dollars and pay for his job within the first year. It took a full month of negotiating, but the company eventually added a Director of eLearning position paying 86% more than his old salary.

New Position: Director eLearning

Days in Search: 35
Old Salary: $45K
New Salary: $84K (86% Increase)
