Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Even though you may be eating leftovers, we are going to continue to move forward with the most significant points in my new book, Successfully Unemployed: Finding or Creating Your Dream Job.

Last week we discussed Preparing for your Next Job Interview. This week we hope that you have received the offer and now can begin the fun focus of negotiations. Almost everything in life is negotiable! This is particularly true with your references, severance, salary and benefits. In all negotiations (including your local garage sale) this truth emerges. If you ask, you may receive. If you don’t ask for it, you won’t receive it. I will discuss how and when to effectively negotiate anything in your life. I will also share some specific job related examples:

  • How to make sure your references highlight your attributes and accomplishments
  • Why your negotiating ability benefits your new employer
  • How to negotiate a severance before starting your new job
  • Rules of effective negotiation regardless of the job market
  • When is the absolute best time to negotiate your salary and benefits
  • How to know your value in the marketplace and what is negotiable beyond wages and salary
