In A Job Search, How to Negotiate For Time

Just as you negotiate salary, with an active job search you need to negotiate for time.  Check out my advice on this topic in my latest Glass Hammer Ask A Recruiter column

Bonus tip for blog readers:  a job search is taxing enough without adding additional companies that you are not genuinely interested in.  In today’s tough market you have to cast a wider net.  I also believe that you shouldn’t rule out companies before you have researched them thoroughly.  However, once you know you’re not going to take a position there, save yourself and your prospective employer the time and bow out gracefully.  Keep the contact lines open for networking; just don’t pursue that specific job.
