March 20 – Smart Job Offer Negotiations for Academic and Non-Academic Jobs

4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Room 7209


Some students are so happy to receive a job offer that they accept immediately, possibly losing out on more money, better benefits, and clearly defined job responsibilities. This workshop will address the following questions and issues:

  • In what jobs and industries are negotiations acceptable and expected?
  • What can be negotiated besides salary and benefits?
  • How do I broach the desire to negotiate?
  • Will the offer be withdrawn if I negotiate?
  • Who do I negotiate with?
  • How do I prepare?
  • What are realistic expectations?

Learn a truly valuable skill that you can use throughout the course of your career.
