great job opportunity falls in my lap, something I want to do (more or less) with great opportunity for advancement in the company, cool people, relaxed atmosphere, and I got an official offer today!
for less than 2/3 what I'm making now.
I really can't accept it, i'd be broke and a half at a time when I'm trying to save up some money.
maybe there'll be another.
music: NIN - head like a hole
ask for more? all they can say is no...
he really wanted to hire me, asked what I was making now so he could try to at least match it, had a talk with his managers and they told him to tell me to fuck off basically.
guess I'm overqualified for it. ^_^
oh poop. :( sorry to hear it!
*crosses fingers for another great opportunity with much better pay*

I'm giving those managers the finger for you right now... If that is any consolation.
unfortunately they only hire at low level, then promote up. the don't hire directly up.

Decline the offer, but don't burn bridges. If they really want you, maybe they'll find a way to offer the compensation that matches your present earnings, at the very least. If not, perhaps you'll have an opportunity to work for them in the future when the economy's better and they can pay you more.
Damn, that sucks, i'm sorry.
*knocks on wood in the hope that something better comes along*
