5 Steps to Negotiate a Job Offer

In this interactive workshop, you will learn (1) when to begin thinking about negotiating for a potential position; and (2) the necessary preparations to successfully negotiate. Whether you like or dislike negotiation, it’s important to weigh your options, know what’s at stake, and not leave any money or benefits on the table. The result? You can take the lead and get the offer package you want!
