Use your techniques of persuasion to get higher pay. Strangely, they say all of this white boarding and role playing around interviews is “Ti-ing Fe.” I prefer to go with the flow. I think about what I’m going to say beforehand but I won’t rehearse it and by letting it happen naturally, I seem to have pulled much better answers than I initially imagined. Almost like there’s some alternate process at work when I’m thinking to answering a question after being directly asked.True, but then I fear that it would place higher expectations on me, cos it's like saying "I believe I am worth this much", which entails a following "I'll have to prove myself" mentality. And I hate it when pressure/competition/ego becomes part of my life.
I prefer the reverse concept, where an employer tells me how much they want to pay me, so then there's no pressure and my mentality can change to, "Hey it's not my fault if I do badly, they chose to employ me!" But yeah, that also risks being underpaid and/or cheated. The money world is lame.
