Now that you have gotten a job offer, how do you interpret what is included in your job offer? What are the benefits and compensation? In this workshop, you will learn helpful strategies to understand a job offer, aspects to consider when accepting a job offer, means to compare job offers, and the best ways to negotiate with your future employer about your offer and benefits. You do not have to have a job offer already. This workshop can help prepare you for future job offer negotiations!
