Live by these laws of salary negotiation to increase your career earnings. [TWEET]
You’ve created an inspiring resume, used every job-search tactic in the book and aced your second and third interviews. By the time an offer is finally presented, chances are good that you’re worn out, and hungry to accept what's on the table and begin your new role.
But not so fast!
This is a crucial point in the interview process, when it’s appropriate – and expected – to negotiate your salary. According to Salary.com, about 80 percent of organizations expect negotiations and leave themselves some wiggle room when presenting a salary offer.
By not properly negotiating your salary, you could be missing out on tens of thousands of dollars over the course of your career.
For that reason, salary expert Jack Chapman created the article series, “The 10 Commandments of Salary Negotiation.” Living by these rules during negotiations is sure to land you the salary you deserve.
