Negotiating a salary can be an intimidating process for job seekers – even more so for a new graduate with little experience.
Learning negotiating skills, however, can help you throughout the course of your career.
Research your role, responsibilities and know your worth in the graduate jobs market.
According to research from U.S. financial firm, NerdWallet, 74% of employers indicate that they are able to increase their offer by 5-10% during the initial hiring stage but only 38% of new graduates are engaging in negotiations.
It doesn’t have to be all about salary either. You may consider negotiating for a more flexible work schedule or health benefits.
