Congratulations, you got the job offer that you were waiting for! But, the employer offered a lower salary than you expected. The offer doesn’t reflect the value you will bring your new employer, but you may lack the nerve to negotiate for a better compensation package or worry how you’ll appear if you try. Arm yourself ahead of time with the right information and strategies to negotiate with confidence. Negotiation is a skill, and like any other, you can improve your game with practice.
