Salary Negotiation Tips

Of all the interview games that employers play, salary negotiation is probably the most misunderstood. Employers are typically willing to pay new hires what they're worth, but some don't negotiate salary, period. Their first offer is their best offer, because they're usually offering the competitive market rate in the first place. They'll typically make that clear.

If that's the case, it's probably not a good idea to push your luck, if you're happy with the offer as is. But many other employers do negotiate, even though they don't say so.

The links below explain the salary negotiation game and help you to play by the rules, so the outcome is a win-win. Links to help you better understand employee benefits vs. salary are included.
