Say hallelujah! You made it through the first 3 stages of the job-hunting process and you’ve been offered the job. Yessssss! Now comes the negotiations.
What you can expect in the way of salary and benefits like vacation and sick leave? More important, what do YOU want? What are you willing to accept to get the job? What are your negotiation points?
Know what you want before you start negotiations
You should have a fairly clear idea even before you start applying for jobs what you need and want in terms of pay and benefits. This is based not just on what you want and are qualified for, but what the market will bear.
Then those expectations need to be modified — much like each resumé and cover letter you craft — to fit each job application.
Some of the points we’ll cover in our negotiation coaching include:
- Your four options
- How to structure the conversation
- What not to say
- How to handle “no”
- Closing the deal
- What to say when you’re deadlocked
We’ll also talk about how best to prepare for the negotiations so you can come out a big winner. And I have some special tips and tricks specifically for women.
