According to a study conducted by the staffing firm Robert Half, only 39% of workers said they negotiated their salary during their last job offer. The study also found that men were more likely to negotiate their salary compared to women (46% vs. 34%). While most employers would likely agree that salary negotiations are appropriate if done in a professional manner, many graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are afraid of this process or unsure how to initiate it.

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Understand job offers, including what you should do when you receive a job offer and how to evaluate one

  • Learn strategies for how to negotiate your job offer to better set you up for success

  • Learn when it is most appropriate to bring up salary negotiations


  • Tiffany Whitehead, Credit One Bank

  • Dr. Kim Nehls, Visiting Assistant Professor, Educational Psychology and Higher Education

  • Bob Moretti, MBA'78, retired from business & gaming industry

Lifecycle Stage: Middle and Late Master’s and Middle and Late Doctoral

Learning Experience: Panel
