What are Salary Negotiations?
Salary negotiations are discussions between yourself and a representative of your current or prospective company that aim to help you secure a higher salary.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a long-time employee or a new-hire: if you feel that your salary isn’t enough, you should feel empowered to negotiate in order to get what you deserve.
Salary negotiations are a normal part of employment and will impact your lifetime earnings. When you are ready to negotiate, build your case, have a wage range or other benefits in mind, and be prepared for resistance.
Not all negotiations are to receive an increase in income. If it is not an option to ask for more monetary compensation, there are other perks worth asking for:
- Tuition reimbursement
- Training and Professional Development Courses
- Health and fitness benefits
- Flexible Work Schedules
