Money, money, money!  Your friends and family think you are priceless, but how much does a Recruiting Director think you are worth?


Before you talk salary, you need to understand the perspective of the recruiting director and the company.  They would like to pay you the least amount of money that they can.  On the other hand, you would like to make the most money that you can.  That’s why it’s a negotiation!


It’s perfectly acceptable to politely and professionally ask if there is a way to negotiate your job offer – not just your salary.  You need to consider more than just your salary when looking at a job offer. In fact, you are more likely to find room for negotiating in some of the benefits beyond salary – things like vacation time, signing bonus, or tuition reimbursement.  Especially for your first job, you need to have a reason to negotiate.  For corporations and big businesses, most entry-level salaries are non-negotiable.  Every single new hire gets the same starting salary. 


That being said, if you think the offer is below standard, you can request a more competitive salary.  Like everything in the job search, preparation is key.  Before you go into an interview, make sure you’ve done some homework about salary.  You want to have research and data to support your request.
