How to Avoid Self-Sabotage and Win at Salary Negotiations

Tuesday, February 28, 2017
9:30 am to 11:00 am

Let's face it, for most of us, the negotiation process is one of the most stressful parts of the job search. Not long after the initial excitement of receiving an offer comes panic followed by dread. 

  • Do I negotiate for more money and risk seeming pushy or ungrateful? 
  • Will I lose this opportunity if I negotiate for too much? 
  • What should I ask for?

If one or more of these thoughts swirl through your head when you think about salary negotiations, you are not alone! This workshop is a step-by-step guide to navigating the negotiation process, especially when it comes to managing your emotions.
