Always Attempt a Salary Negotiation
JT & Dale Talk Jobs
APRIL 22, 2011
Dale: We often get questions about whether to negotiate salary when being offered a new job, and we always urge people to give it a try. If nothing else, we suggest a low-risk strategy of saying, “Thank you, I accept the job offer…but I wonder if there’s any room on salary? However, you might just get an extra few grand a year, all for less than a minute of negotiation. One accepts the $50,000, and the other negotiates up to $55,000.
