CONGRATULATIONS. YOU’VE RECEIVED THE JOB OFFER, HOWEVER, THE SALARY IS NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED.

In many cases, you can negotiate a salary offer. Most employers are used to candidates asking to do this. Remember, you can often include perks beyond salary (remote working, continued education, flexibility in working hours). A few tips:

✔️Express your gratitude and ask if the salary is negotiable. If so, proceed.

✔️Research typical salaries for the role, industry, and geographical location.

✔️Have a good reason for asking for more and emphasize how your strengths align with their needs.

✔️Practice your request in advance.

✔️Be professional.

❌No ultimatums. Know when to stop asking for more.
