You’ve received a job offer but you’re not pleased with the salary being offered. What do you do? ClearedJobs.Net HR Specialist Patra Frame discusses the best strategy for negotiating your offer, including salary.
Your first consideration is, do you really want the job? Don’t waste anyone’s time with negotiations for a position that doesn’t interest you. If you do want to negotiate the offer, your key points are:
1. Thank the recruiter or hiring manager for the offer.
2. Restate your interest and the value you bring to the position.
3. Ask for the specific changes to the offer you would like to see — two to three changes max — with the business reasons for the changes.
4. Be quiet!
