Subject:Fast Help Needed From:"Shelly M. LaRock" <smlarock -at- MTU -dot- EDU> Date:Wed, 15 Feb 1995 11:23:59 EST
I need some information, and I need it before 3pm EST.
I received a phone call about a job offer this morning,
and the job is a 12-month contract position in Palo Alto, CA.
It's a typical contract (i.e., no benefits, no moving
expenses). I have to call the company back at 3pm today
to discuss my salary expectations, and I don't have a clue
what I should expect, since I'm not familiar with that
part of the country.
Any information anyone can give me would be greatly
appreciated. A little background info on the job:
I would be writing software documentation, and possibly
helping write/edit C++ code.
Thanks in advance! Please post responses to me instead
of the list. If anyone else want the information, I can
always forward it.
