Actual E-Mail From Recruiter

Hi Jake,

I’m surprised that you didn’t even see what [redacted] has to offer.

Congratulations on the offer.

I slightly concerned for you, the firm you mentioned I’ve known about for a while and with the funding and current status I’m curious why you feel comfortable joining that risky of a start up? Was the offer phenominal?

[redacted] was looking at around $120k just as a base salary - Please tell me it was close to that? I want to make sure you aren’t moving to hastily.

Sometimes we get very excited about having an official offer and get slight tunnel vision as to the risks associated. What was the number on the offer?

MAUDE: My art has been commended as being strongly feminist. Which bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Feminist.
