Prepare Yourself For Effective Salary Negotiation
Published: Nov 11, 2010
Negotiating salary is not high on anyone's list of fun things to do, and yet it's one of the most important things you can do when considering a job offer. The more you negotiate, the more you're likely to get--and I can assure you: if you don't ask, you won't get. Be prepared and know what your deal-breakers are. There's always room to negotiate, as long as you are tactful and respectful and don't appear to be giving ultimatums. Particularly in this economy, there may be more room for barter than you think.
