Negotiating Compensation: The Secrets to Establishing Your Worth

Many of us believe we are underpaid, or simply have no idea what to respond with when asked what our salary requirements are. Find out how to know and claim your market value for a new role or prove your value to your current employer.

  • How to prepare
  • Relevance of timing
  • Importance of reflecting the company? needs
  • Presenting value
  • Negotiating for money or other points/requests
