I am looking for a new grad residency in Seattle and I haven't seen any sign-on bonuses advertised here. Has anyone heard of new grads negotiating for them when they aren't advertised? My best friend sells real estate and she thinks I'm nuts for not trying.

From what I have seen, new grads have little clout with which to negotiate, because they are inexperienced and need a lot of training. Many hospitals do not even hire new grads, much less provide special programs for them, MUCH LESS pay them a bonus.
But good luck.
(Did your real estate friend demand, and get, a bonus on her first job with a realtor or working in real estate? I thought not.)
