Third, always understand the total compensation package. Your job offer comes with vacation days, sick days, a certain title, health insurance, and a number of other staff benefits. Check with the HR person to understand what all of the benefits are. Know how many sick days you will get and how many vacation days. All of these items are things that you could potentially negotiate. Three extra vacation days is equal to a little bit more in salary.

With this posture your body will become very tired, your productivity will decrease and basically you’ll feel lethargic.

We have taken all of these things into consideration, and the ever-growing world of “coworking” has emerged. Coworking is not your father’s job. It’s a new way to work, and specifically meets the needs of 2010 and beyond – the age of the independent knowledge worker.
