Anyone has comments?

That's why i always feel best to negotiate for a salary that you really want before accepting any offer. Else very easy to feel disappointed. Why not u try asking if the company can increase your salary instead of looking elsewhere?

Will we give new employers/manager a bad impression if we negotiate for higher salary? I am at my first job, so no experience in negotiating. For my current job, i just accept since first job after grad. Thanks..

High chance they won't arrange new interview for you already due to your own mistake

I am the original poster. I quitted without a job cos I was asked to resign when my ex company shifted to a new office.

The management was trying to save cost even if it was trying hard not to make it obvious.

I knew it cos I was assigned to do the job of a hr manager when I was just a support staff. A lot of funny duties assigned to me and my gut is telling me something is off.

When the management did unwillingly hire a real hr manager, somehow, the duties were still sticking with me and when I showed my unwillingness to do a job that was outside my work scope with no increase of pay, I was asked to resign.

It is not as simple as you think.

As I was not trained hr personnel and did not have a hr management qualification, I was assigned to take over a hr manager duties after they asked the former hr manager to leave.

I was not willing to be made responsible for something I was not qualified to do so.
It was not fair for me.

I have been jobless for 6 months since and I am 43 years old this year.
