How do I tactfully approach negotiations to get the most value out of a job offer?

You've made it through the interview rounds, and both parties are keen on moving forward.




Here's what to keep in mind during your negotiation journey.The Timing Tactic: Follow the negotiation “Golden Rule” and let them make the first move when it comes to the topic of salary.


1) Answering Salary Questions: When they ask for your salary expectations, provide a well-researched range. Frame it as a broad understanding.


2) Dive Deep into Research: Know your worth in the industry and familiarize yourself with the typical salary range and benefits typically offered for the role.


3) The Negotiation Balancing Act: Understand the landscape and recognize that while some terms and benefits are flexible, others may not be.


4) Beyond the Salary: Remember, it's not just about the paycheck. Consider other perks like flexible hours, stock options, benefits or additional allowances.


5) Real Conversations Matter: Say 'No' to emails. Always negotiate in real-time, emphasizing your strengths and reinforcing their positive perception of you.
