How to negotiate a job offer
Looking for a new job can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Having a job equals having more stability, more money, and hopefully being able to pursue the career you want to have. When it comes to getting a job, there are certain things you need to do to ensure that you get the job you want, at a rate which can sustain your lifestyle. Here are some tips for negotiating a job offer that you feel is too low, for a job that you want.
- Find out everything you can about the job. Before you apply, or go for an interview, find out everything you can about the company, and the job itself. No employer wants to hire somebody that simply copy/pastes a standard application. You need to tailor your interview answers and application to the job to stand out and seem more valuable.
- Thank your potential employer for the offer. If you don’t thank the employer then you will seem ungrateful. Even if you find the offer insulting you must always be polite in order to continue to seem like the kind of employee the employer wants on their staff.
- Set up a decent time frame for a response. Tell the employer that you need to think about your response, and ask for a certain number of days or a week to decide. This should stop your job being offered to someone else, and makes you seem professional but in demand.
- Come back with your negotiation tools in place. Let your employer know why you are worth more, and why you will not accept what you are being offered. You should then ask for a better offer, without stipulating an amount, to allow your employer to feel as though they are still calling the shots.
