About This Event
Negotiation does not just begin once there is an offer on the table.
Job seekers often miss a huge opportunity to negotiate during the interview, by focusing solely on getting the job. During this free workshop, you will learn how to start asking the right questions, exploring fit, and negotiating for what you really want.
Why It Matters?
Many candidates think that just addressing the job description and knowing about the company is enough to land the job, but by failing to discover the decision maker’s true interests, you miss the opportunity to explore and improve the fit between what they want and what you offer. New hires that focus solely on getting the job instead of negotiating the fit can end up in dissatisfying positions that don’t match their skills or interests.
And then there’s salary. Companies use many tactics to encourage candidates to name the first number (“What is your current salary?”) and to accept their offer by saying it’s non-negotiable (it’s usually negotiable). They also give short timelines for a response (which are often artificial) and act like they have all the power (and they usually don’t).
What You’ll Take Away?
This workshop will provide a framework and exercises to:
- Stand out in job interviews.
- Understand your power and leverage.
- Generate options to make the job the best fit for you.
