Non-Academic Job Offer and Salary Negotiation
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 non-academic job offers from a variety of employment sectors, 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
- Discuss what items are more negotiable than others
