On March 22 (PST) we will be performing site maintenance on the Lynda.com database to improve performance, which requires taking down the Lynda.com website for a short period of time. The work is being done between 9pm-12am PST (3 hours), but we will only have a maximum of 1 hour of down time. We do not know exactly when within the 3 hours window we will be down. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
We provided free exercise files that are available to all lynda.com members to help you get the most from this course. These files include a pre-negotiation worksheet, an offer evaluation worksheet, and a checklist. Now let's get started.
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.
