Why Katy Perry
Can Turn Down $20 Million
in a slow job market it is possible to get multiple job offers. When you
master networking, interviewing, and creating demand for your skillsets

pursuing you. Getting multiple job offers is an ideal position to be in as
a job seeker. It gives you more options, as well as, bargaining power.

the "walk" card. Having options and being able to walk away from a job
offer is the best position to be in.

impossible to do the show... she just didn't think it was right career
choice for her."
Turning down a job offer.

many business / job offers because of her reputation, celebrity status,
and public record of achievement. The same
is true for anyone else. The more people who know about your achievements
and abilities, know your good reputation, and recognize your professional
accomplishments, the more likely you are to get multiple job offers. Just
like Katy, that allows you to pick and choice the jobs that are best for
your situation and / or career.

Katy turned down a $20 million job. That tells you she has enough work and
opportunities going on that she is in a position to justifiably turn down
that offer. Are you in the same position? Are you in a position to choose
