Q: How do I negotiate salary when I get a job offer?
A: It took me an embarrassingly long time to even realize that I could and should ask for more money when accepting a new job. But, as awkward as it can feel, you don’t get what you don’t ask for.
Knowing whether the company is a lead payer or a mid-market or low payer also can inform how much you’re likely to get.
The first step in any negotiation is to approach the conversation as a collaboration instead of a power struggle. Try statements like “I would love to understand what the opportunity is to get closer to this salary,” or “What is the flexibility in your salary range for this role?”
Those statements open up the conversation rather than shutting it down with a simple yes or no.
