Dear Classy Girl-
I am going on a third and hopefully final interview today and I pray I will get the big offer! The position would require me to wear a business suit every day. My last position required me to dress very casual, either in business casual or even jeans.
I am most likely taking a sizeable pay decrease due to the economy, job market as it is, and I am changing careers. With that said, would it be appropriate for me to ask for a small signing bonus of lets say $500.00 to help with the cost of literally buying an entire new work wardrobe? Most people I ask say it can’t hurt. If I do ask for the signing bonus, should I specify and amount and tell them why I am asking for it? I don’t want them to think I am just looking for more money.
Thank you SO much!!! Love your website!
