Article SummaryX

To negotiate your salary, start by researching online and asking coworkers what their salaries are so you don’t start bargaining too low. When your employer makes an offer, reject it politely and present a counter-offer. Explain confidently why you deserve a higher salary, but avoid sounding aggressive or demanding. After the employer makes a final offer, ask for 1-2 days to consider it. If it is below your minimum, be prepared to walk away, but also consider if you can get other benefits since the salary is lower. To learn more from our Civil Litigator co-author, such as how to get the offer in writing, keep reading the article!
