We rolled on everything from the Pyongyang Circus and rail station to the Kim Il Sung Square and the Yanggak Bridge. Look at the side-by-side buildings where one is for orphans and the other for the old. The Pyongyang racecourse, not far from the smoking power plant and the Arch of Reunification. There is the top of the Yanggakdo International Hotel (where we often stay), the Rungrado May Day Stadium and the Munsu Water Park and of course the colorful Sci-Tech Complex. Are They Happier? It is hard for us as journalists to know how the people truly feel because we cannot interview North Koreans privately away from our minders. Wherever we go our hosts or guides listen to our questions and certainly write down the answers. For the very first time we got the chance to unwind at the Kaeson Youth Park, filled with roller coasters and insane rides.

So, how do you answer questions about your salary without turning off a prospective employer during the screening process? You can perhaps afford to pepper the latter with questions regarding details of the offer, but you don’t want to annoy someone who may become your manager with seemingly petty demands. Obviously, when either or both parties take such apparently irrevocable positions during a negotiation, there can be no winners, only losers. If you’ve got a strong bargaining position with the company, it’s well worth your while to ask – because some companies do provide these benefits to relocating employees. Often better benefits — like flexible schedules or excellent health insurance — make up for a lower salary. Then, from those general points, determine the most favourable compensation package for you. It can also demonstrate your commitment to doing what it takes to stay ahead of the competition for yourself and for the organization that employs you. This is easy to overlook when you’re engaged.
