If negotiating salary makes you uncomfortable, you're not alone. Only 37 per cent of employees say they always negotiate their salary. And 18 per cent say they never do, causing them to miss out on an average of $500,000 in wages during their working career.
Consider these eight salary negotiation approaches before, during and after the request.
Ask for a Salary Range. Another successful tactic is to ask for a salary range instead of an exact number. This allows the interviewer a little room to fit your request into the company's parameters. You may also come across as less rigid and more flexible in your negotiations.
Getting the salary you deserve is not impossible, but it requires thoughtful preparation and persuasion. Increase your odds of salary negotiation success by being realistic, allowing the interviewer to realise your worth before discussing money and by doing your homework.
