Strong negotiating skills have proven to increase salaries,
vacation packages, benefit packages, and other employment perks.
Who wouldn't want to negotiate higher pay before accepting a job?
Negotiating is a learned skill that we will analyze
and practice as the time approaches with each job opportunity.
When to Negotiate
When you choose to negotiate is critical to results of the negotiations.
Learn when to and when not to negotiate.
Being able to identify and articulate your leverage points can
make for an appealing argument that sells the hiring manger on providing
you a better offer.
Areas of Negotiation
It's not just the salary that can be negotiated. There are many
aspects of employment that when negotiated can either earn you extra
cash or better working conditions. We will walk through each step
of the negotiation process and explore all avenues to address.
When to Walk
It's important to know where your thresholds lie. What is the magic
number where you will accept the job versus walk away? Knowing this
clearly beforehand gives you a distinct advantage and confidence
when faced with monetary decisions.
Reaching an Agreement
Once an agreement has been reached between you and your new employer
request the official offer in writing. Only then can you sit down
with it and see exactly what was agreed on, ensure everything is
represented, and make your final decision about the job offer.
