The Art of Negotiating a Salary

Salary negotiation is more an art than a science and is usually one of the most ignored and under-rated aspects of a job search.

You often hear people say, “I just want to get my foot in the door, and I don’t care what the starting pay is. Once I’m in, I will eventually make more money.” Don’t ever make that mistake as it just doesn’t work that way. Do not accept a position at a salary lower than you know you are worth with the hopes of a pay increase in the future.
