$$$ Don't Leave Cash on the Table $$$
I just got this note from a client today. I’ve had so many conversations with friends and colleagues who had dramatically undersold themselves.
Not knowing how to negotiate your entire compensation package can cost you $10K, $20K, or in some cases as much as $50K or more in annual income or benefits.
No kidding, I just helped a client negotiate a $25K raise from her previous position, a bonus, and company equity(neither one of which was she eligible for in her last role).
You have got to know how to respond when a recruiter asks you what your salary expectations are.
1. DO NOT low ball yourself…there is no other time you will get a major bump in pay than when you change jobs. Resist the temptation to tell them what you make today or worse, suggest you’d take the job for less. I can’t tell you how many clients I have worked with that hate their current job and they actually consider taking less, just to get a new position. Don’t do it! You are worth more!
2. Whoever says a number first loses!
Part of the service I offer is talking through salary negotiations when we have our initial consult.
Finding a new job and negotiating salary can be scary. The good news is that you don’t have to do this alone.
Wouldn’t it feel amazing to have a high level of confidence in your resume, your LinkedIn profile, salary negotiation, and your ability to maximize a job search?
I work with clients virtually all over the country. We would pick a time that works for you.
We can do a one hour consultation to talk through options and strategy.
Interested? Send me a message on LinkedIn or reach out to me by email at email@example.com and we can talk about pricing and next steps.
I have a few spots left for this week and next week. Get scheduled today.
