Negotiation is a central component in the ongoing effort to close the gender wage gap. In an initial salary offer, the vast majority of employers offer 5-15 percent less than budgeted because they fully expect candidates to negotiate. Most men actually do, but only 30 percent of women come back with a higher number. If you do not negotiate, you are leaving precious money on the table and perhaps reducing your chances of recouping it over the course of your career.
Effective negotiation is a skill that requires knowing your audience, arming yourself with data and research and, yes, lots of practice. Join The Swing Shift and our friends at Payscale and Apptio for our Ready. Set. Negotiate. workshop and learn how to confidently ask for and get the compensation you deserve.
