So, you've made finally made it through four grueling years of studying, fun times and self discovery in college. By now, you should have your diploma in hand, ready to take on the world. After a few years worth of consistent work, its time to move on, and with that comes increased salary......so, you hope.

Proving your worth during the interview process is no easy task. Of course, delicate situations like this bring endless questions to mind. What if they don't offer the money I desire? How do I ask for a higher salary without alienating my employer? What if my employer isn't willing to negotiate the base pay? What else can I ask for in addition to my pay?

Figuring out ways to tread the fine line of job negotiating is no easy task, but here are a few things you can consider when negotiating:

 

Discussing Salaries:

One must be careful about bringing the topic of salary too early into the conversation. Doing this can offset your priorities on company culture and skill-set. Also, if a recruiter bring up money too early, it can be helpful to smoothly transition into conversations about your experience to share your qualifications before being cut off.

 

Benchmarking:

Understand what your company will or will not be willing to pay. Consider how they decide on their salary levels incorporating average industry salary, and educated professional salary. Also understand if the company you are with will even be willing to pay you your worth.

 

Broaden your Scope:

Sometimes people are not aware that they can negotiate more than just money. Look into your benefits package as well as the compensation. Inquiring about perks that are not cash, can be helpful to you in your field. There are things like job titles, transportation reimbursement, guaranteed severance package, and tuition reimbursement.
