How to negotiate your salary


How to negotiate your salary, We always have conversations about the latest news of our favorite stars, down to what's new in our jobs; so the question of whether we know how to negotiate a salary is no stranger to our discussions.


 If you're in your twenties, you may have just started working in the areas you want, and just started figuring out how to negotiate a salary, ask for a bonus, and get the promotions you've been dreaming of.


Based on that, usually located our answers to the question negotiating salary somewhere between "Don't know" and"can you talk to your manager about this?"; And if we have any advice on negotiating for a salary, it is indeed our best guess.


 Every time you ask them questions like these, we expect to find a magic lamp can rub it out of administrative, technical, rather than sex, and answer all of our questions professional carefully, as it understands the functions of the link, the answer better than someone who doesn't know anything about her, who knows what strategies work? What are the strategies guaranteed to get what you want from your employer? 


Magic bulbs don't exist, but managers do; so we talked to ten of them to find out how someone should successfully negotiate a salary.


 We present to you dear reader in this article 13 of their tips for higher salaries:


1. Remember that you have a bargaining advantage:


 Alexander Lowry, executive director of Gordon University's master of Financial Analysis Program and advisor to the CEO, says: "the hiring process is stressful for both parties،


Employers spend hours examining resumes, interviewing and choosing whom to hire; while you discuss salary, the employer is very willing to gain your satisfaction, which means you have the advantage in bargaining."


2. Understand that most employers expect you to negotiate:


 Laurie adds: "many employers intentionally leave room to negotiate the salary they are offering, expecting that you will negotiate them; failing to do so makes you lose that extra money. So, ask - do not ask-whether the employer can increase the offer, if the answer is no, you can still accept work at the specified salary gratefully." 


3. Search for industry and company


Lakiesha Tomlin, executive professional advisor at Thriving Ambition, Inc., says: "try to figure out the value of the acceptable salary for the position and the company.


 This will put you in a better position to negotiate when asked to determine the salary you want; so limit your skills and compare them to what your employer is looking for, for example: if they want someone with an MBA and you have it, use this to your advantage.


 Also look for the skills you have, which is not included in the job application, showed that the value you will bring to the institution beyond what you ask of salary"


4. See more than you want:


 says Alexander Lowry: "the negotiations involve some backtracking, it's not as simple as saying yes or no; so, don't hesitate to ask for more than you want, because that will allow you much room to grow into what you want already."


Rhian Sharp, CEO of sharp Medical Recruiting, encourages you to ask for more: "leaving a big difference between the desired salary and what you're asking for can leave you room to bargain without sacrificing what you really want؛


Therefore, make sure that the higher number is the one you want to start the waiver starting from, and that the smaller number is at least the salary you really want."


5. Support your application with proof of your importance:


 the best way to prove your importance is to be based on real data, and the more actual numbers you can use to prove yourself, the better your bargaining is, 


"says Katia Ameri, CEO of Mirra. I find it impressive when someone can concretely demonstrate how their skill set will translate into actual success in the company; and if you can provide examples of how you can help take the company to the next level, that will impress the employer."


Lawyer and entrepreneur Deborah Sweeney agrees:"I am always surprised that people ask for a certain salary; many people come to assert that they need more money without actually proving that they are worth more than the salary we offer them."


6. Don't show all your skills at once:


 negotiation consultant Devon Smiley says: "the pressure you feel during negotiations can lift your adrenaline, and because of that you may be tempted to speed up your full list of achievements.


 Resist this urge, don't reveal all your cards from the start; instead, maneuver to get your initial order by offering two or three of your successes, and keep the rest for later use.


 That way, when you review counter proposals; you will still have strong examples of your contributions and successes to use to support your goals."


7. Don't assume that your tenure or previous salary guarantees you a higher wage


Katya Amiri supports this advice: "when I'm looking for people to bring to the team, I care more about the potential future value of those people than I care about their history; if I were you, I wouldn't remember what I was doing in my previous job.


 In fact, it does not matter, the most important question is: how will your experience translate into added value to the company you join?"


"Don't assume that what you did in your last job has some kind of magical effect on what you're going to do in your next job, every employer is different with different budgets and needs, and you have to negotiate with this new company according to their needs, not your previous one, "says Gracia Miklusak, CEO of tilr.


"Don't assume that your salary increase is guaranteed based on your previous tenure; your previous tenure doesn't mean much when it comes to someone who deserves a salary increase or not, "says Gene Caballero, co-founder of GreenPal.


8. Use clear and precise language:


 Devon Smiley says: "avoid the language of wishes, clarity and accuracy are your friends when you ask for a salary increase. So, instead of saying: "I would like..."Or" I'm looking for, "say:" I'm asking..."It's a clearer expression, and it makes you look more stable."


On a similar note, do not submit your request for an apology or excuse, such as: "Sorry To Bother You..."Or" I know budgets are tight now, but...", And instead frame this request by showing your achievements, such as:"based on my record of success in this role, this seems more convincing."



9. Remember that salary is not the only thing on the negotiating table:

 "I realize that salary is not the only negotiable element; the payment of tuition, the work schedule, the payment of transfer fees, and the initial task of the job are examples of other things that you can negotiate as well. Consider what is most important to you, your needs and your career, negotiate these issues, and get a clear understanding of what you give top priority, so you can know what you are and don't want to compromise."


"Consider the total compensation number (salary), as well as the value of other benefits," says Ren Burgett, a professional coach. You'll need to set a value for each feature to get an exact number, for example: if you currently have a two-week vacation and you're making 52,000 a year, your weekly salary is $1,000, and your vacation time $2,000.


 If your base salary is $52,000, and your benefits package is 10,000, you can use $62,000 as a starting point to negotiate your salary.


 Just emphasize this by saying: "my total compensation is $62,000", so you will not be misleading."


10. Be firm, but realistic:

 Tanya Silver, human resources manager at Becker Logistics, says: "be firm about your salary requirements, but make sure there are solid reasons. If you don't have a lot of experience, consider a lower salary."


Be honest about your salary expectations, and make sure of having a list in your mind of the areas that are able to adapt to them; so if necessary, you can give without losing any basis on what really matters to you.


11. Ask for a written contract, give yourself 24 hours to consider before committing:


 "always ask for a written offer of salary and benefits, then take 24 hours to assemble your ideas and consider this offer," says Ren borgit.


 Most companies will send you a copy by email, then an official letter by mail once you accept the position. When someone posts, you can say something like: "Thank you for the offer, I'm excited about the next steps.


 When do I expect to see a written presentation message? Then: wow, can I ask for a 24-hour timeout to study it?"And, if for any reason they inquire why you need 24 hours, answer them that you want to spend some time processing the offer and reading the advantages to see if you have any questions about it."


12. Don't be afraid to ask "a lot", or rejection if you don't get what you want:


say, "Lakeisha Tomlin": "don't be afraid to ask what you really want, because people tend to fear from the request for "a lot" and intimidation of a potential employer.


 But in this case, if the concealed employers, it may be a good thing; just imagine how would you feel working for a year or two bright did not meet your expectations.


 In the same vein, do not be afraid to refuse if you do not get what you are looking for not only in terms of salary but also in terms of job responsibility, potential mobility, and benefits; it may not be the right opportunity for you."


13. Discuss a plan to get what you want, if you can't get it: Devon Smiley says:


 "I get very moved when someone's reaction to hearing the word' No ' is not just to walk away or withdraw, but instead to take that response as an opportunity to continue the discussion forward.


 "I understand that $5,000 cannot be increased, but what can the company offer?"Or" what skills can be developed in the next six months to achieve a wage increase?"; The mere fact that you can't get the money now, doesn't mean that you can't prepare yourself for it later".
