Successfully Negotiating an Offer for Careers beyond Academia

Thursday, November 5, 2015, 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
114 South Hall
How can you set the appropriate tone, develop a positive rapport, explore options around your job offer that meet your needs, while successfully building a positive and lasting impression? What are your needs? What is your “bottom line”? When do you walk away? How do you raise salary issues or need for a delay in start time? When do you put your issues on the table?
When negotiating a position, it is important to remember you are at the very beginning of establishing a new and, hopefully, long-term relationship. This workshop will explore the nuances and strategies for successfully asking for what you need when negotiating a position outside academia. We will explore tips on what, when and how to ask. We will debunk myths around power dynamics, how to go about setting priorities and resources available for determining an appropriate salary range for the position you are applying.
