I was watching ESPN while doing my early morning workout the other day and heard about the passing of legendary coach Joe Paterno. They were speaking about the instability of the coaching profession and how often college football coaches change programs. However, Paterno had been at Penn State his entire career with one exception. He had been head coach of the National Football League's New England Patriots for three days. He had been making a base salary at that time at Penn State of $32,000. The Patriots offered him over $3 million. He resigned after three days, however, as he felt that no coach should make that much money. I find that amazing and quite admirable. I’m certain when he was interviewing for the job the “salary” question never came up. You know, “What’s your salary expectation?”, or "How much money will it take for you to join us?”... No matter how it is asked, it can be a very uncomfortable question. So like anything when entering an interview you must be prepared for this question. Which leads to my next Quick Tip, The Salary Question.
