I was thinking about the situation job candidates find themselves in, and so naturally Albert Brooks came to mind.
As a film director and actor, he has depicted the moment of a job offer on a couple of occasions.
First, in "Lost In America," he plays a guy at an advertising agency who loses it when he is offered a position he feels is beneath him.
And then, in "Defending Your Life," a flashback shows him talking tough the night before he is offered a job and then totally capitulating on all his demands in the actual moment the next day.
I'm sure many of us wish we had a do-over when it comes to accepting a salary package. But hey, you think "Look, I really want this job...so I'll accept this offer and then renegotiate after I have shown them how valuable I am."
How did that go for you?
