My first job was working as a Content Writer.
Today I earn $100,000 as a Content Manager.
I got poached by an early stage startup which doubled my salary, from $50,000 to $100,000.
My ability to build great blogs, take initiative by raising ideas and executing them and develop relationships.
Not officially, but I have friends with more experience than me who I've leaned on for advice in terms of salary negotiation and career moves.
My ability to write, take initiative and speak up in meetings.
Get some serious wins under your belt and leverage them to switch jobs, preferably for a company that has raised a good amount of money. Confidently ask for more than you'd expect. Have chutzpah.
I'm a man living in Tel Aviv, Israel.
