It’s More Than Salary
Negotiating a job offer is more than targeting a salary. No matter what kind of position you are looking at, remember everything is negotiable. In addition to what you will get paid, you can negotiate:
- Training and professional development opportunities
- Travel budget
- Company car
W.I.N. Philosophy: Flex Those Muscles
Work that “asking” muscle whenever you can to keep it limber, flexible and ready to use. Whether you’re an executive, manager or someone’s assistant; salaried or hourly; paid or volunteer…practice the W.I.N. methodology:
- Negotiation is part of everyday life.
- Everything is negotiable.
- Work your negotiation muscles in as many everyday opportunities as you can, so you can be successful when you’re asking for the big stuff.
