What are some tips for negotiating your salary?

Krista Jaekel:

Know your worth! Have an understanding of the market (specific field, location, experience level). Do your research.

Erin Jernigan:

- Show that you have done market research

- Highlight what differentiates you from other candidates and specific examples on how you have made the business successful (try and tie it to money and/or time saved)

  • Great advice. Not only is salary important but benefits as well. The salary negotiated maybe a little bit lower than you want but the benefit package may be better.
