a salary negotiation success story
Ask a Manager
SEPTEMBER 20, 2018
I’m a 27-year-old woman, and I recently negotiated my salary successfully for the first time. For my second job, I attempted to negotiate a higher hourly rate with the hiring manager via email, who told me he wasn’t able to offer anything more than the going rate (this was true) and I ended up accepting anyway. For my third job, an internal move to a different department at the same organisation, I was once again offered a lower salary than I wanted.
