I was recently offered a position and decided to counter the offer with an approx 10% increase in the salary they offered me. Mind you, I went through 2 interviews all within a week and in my last interview the person kept expressing how happy she was that they had met me as candidate. I therefore reached out to a career counselor from my university, as well as 2 other personal contacts who are seasoned in HR and recruiting and per the feedback, I felt there was a good opportunity to ask for more. Following the call where I made the counter, I did not receive a response for a little over a week until I followed up a couple days ago to which the recruiter responded that it’s still being discussed by upper management. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? I think I may have shot myself in the foot and kind of regret making the counter.
