Salary Negotiations

 Salary negotiations may be uncomfortable but they are an important step in the job search and interviewing process. Once you are offered a position, you will have an opportunity to discuss the terms of your employment, which includes your pay. Before you begin negoitations, here are some recommendations:

1.) Do Your Research: Make sure you understand the job and what is required. Also do some research about the company's salary ranges, benefits, and performance reviews.

2.) Come Up With Some Numbers: Research salaries and salary ranges for similar positions in your area and field. Keep these numbers in mind when you are negotiating. 

3.) Determine Your "Walk-Away" Point: Now that you have determined your range, think about the minimum salary you are willing to accept and how you feel about accepting anything lower than that. Be prepared to share your reasons with the Hiring Manager.

4.) Reiterate Your Strengths:  What is your ability to get the job done? What skills do you have to make you a choice candidate?

5.) Give A Time Frame: Once you receive an offer, it is best not to agree right away. Tell the employer that you will need to think about the offer and give them a time frame for an answer (typically 24 hours).

Bonus Tip: Don't get personal! It's not an employer's problem that you have extra expenses now such as travel, parking, etc.
