  • Does anyone have any recent experience to negotiating a salary? I just got an offer for my second job out of college (been in my current one for around a year now). It’s at a great company and its a great fit, and I’m going to take the offer even if negotiating out some more money isn’t an option. With that being said, with the cost of living skyrocketing in my city, even a few extra thousand dollars would make a pretty big difference, and i was wondering if anyone has any strategies to pull it off without sounding like an entitled douchebag

  • atleast post the job title and industry

    nothing super concrete, its going to take a few days for them to do a background check on all of my licenses, then i would assume i have a couple of days after that. I'd say Friday at the earliest into maybe early next week

    .

  • hopefully you lied when they asked your current salary and gave them what you want to make instead.

    what industry? are you marketable? are there people in line behind you?

    I just applied for a role and they make you put in current salary and expected salary into their online forms before you even have an idea of the role at hand. It seems just pointless cos my current role is one I took basically as a stop gap and its in a small town so its naturally pretty low. I'm applying for an in city role at a much more professional business so I'll be demanding a way higher salary, but it makes you feel like you hav less leverage and they don't give you space to clarify on the online forms.

    This is what I’m looking for. (Say a number higher than what you actually want so if they try to meet you halfway you get what you wanted in the first place and if they agree to the higher number it’s an even bigger win)

    I have other offers and I know the value of someone with my experience in this field.

    ask for more than what youll settle on

    i guess i need to hear like did the job have a salary and you agreed on it or how did it go about?

    Id say with everything going on in the world economocially it totally makes sense to negotiate a higher salary but i also need to know alot more about the situation you are in and how the job came about and how much pay has been already discussed

  • Say it's an adjustment due to inflation

    Don't ever sell yourself short

    Pay was lightly discussed, they asked me for my expected range and their offer was in that range. However, even though its still more than my current salary I’d be losing a couple key benefits that I’m concerned about, so even an extra 5% would make me feel more comfortable

    How many interviews have you had with this company ?

    if you've had 3 so far, just say "during my interview process with (names), I found out that there's actually way more responsibility than how much you guys are offering me and the job posting you posted. Even though the offer is very generous, I feel like a little increase would be beneficial to both parties"

    OR

    "im actually losing a lot of money if I sign with you guys, Im losing stocks options within the company i work with atm, profitability and yearly bonuses, a signing bonus would help me alot....."

    These recruiters arent rtrrded, they will adjust your pay according to the city you live in, the rent you pay ?? , never lie about that s***.

    Never settle king, these guys will ALWAYS low-ball you.

    You should spit out a number HIGHER but Realistic than the industry standard.

    Ask for it with your chest out!
    Ask for a little more than with what you’re comfortable accepting just in case they try to negotiate

    Everyone does it, do not feel ashamed. A few extra k’s is chum change for these companies + I’m sure if they already made up their mind to hire you they’re not gonna shy away from offering you some more money to make their life easier

    Google some templates if you need help writing an email, you don’t need to give so many reasons trust, it’s okay

    Appreciate this man, its definitely just the anxiety of sounding like im asking for too much thats holding me back. But at the end of the day, i know i deserve it

    Thanks bro. Their offer is pretty much dead on with the national average, but being in Boston i expect a little bit more than most cities due to how much the cost of living has increased here. And this is also true, im going to be walking away from some restricted units when I sign on, and i should be able to use that

    man, you not "national average", ALWAYS sell yourself better than average.

    Damn, also, if this is a good company they would help you out with the whole standard of living s***. I work on tech and theyre very generous with their offers.
