In this course, author Valerie Sutton shows smart ways to set up a foundation for negotiating your salary, discuss your strengths, and follow up to achieve agreement. Discover how to research the salary range for the position you're applying for, put it in the context of your salary history, and make a persuasive request. Whether you're at your current job or making a leap to the next, this course will help compare your expectations and performance with others, and negotiate for not only the best take-home pay, but also a combination of benefits, such as vacation days and flextime, that work for both you and your employer.
Once you've accepted your offer and given your resignation, you should prepare for your new position and prepare to stay in contact with your old colleagues. Prior to starting your new position, plan your route to work so that you can be on time. Also, do some research on appropriate dress for this work environment. Schedule a meeting with your boss if she has not already done so. Come prepared with questions about the general expectations of the company, high priority projects, and how you'll be assessed in the first three months.
In addition to these meetings, continue your research. Although, you did some before your interview, this doesn't mean you know enough to be successful. Examine old projects, learn office politics, and assess the mission-critical goals of the organization. You can then set appropriate goals for your first three months on the job. Once you've settled into your new job, remember to contact your old colleagues to give them updated contact information.
Continue to keep them as a part of your network. You never know when you'll be job hunting, and need professional advice. You should be off to a great start. In the final chapter, I'll discuss special situations that may be relevant to you.
