Evaluating Offers And Negotiating Salary


Negotiating your salary can be a scary task for a new grad and in many cases quite overwhelming. Students will often be worried that they may ask for too low and not be paid what they feel is fair or they may ask too high and lose the job opportunity.

To avoid this, students need to research their field and the salaries of individuals in their field. This will give them a starting point to determine how much is typical for the job they are interviewing for and whether the company gave them a fair offer - giving the student the opportunity to negotiate better with their future employer.
