  • July 13, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The proposition: Put in a few hours of extra work now and be paid thousands more each year for the rest of your career.

Would you accept it?

Taking the time to develop and execute a salary negotiation could provide you with a significant earnings boost that you can enjoy year after year.  This workshop will discuss the psychology of negotiating, how to prepare for salary discussions, the negotiation process, and things to check before signing on the dotted line.

This workshop will be taught by Irene Hsieh.  She is a finance specialist with over 15 years experience working with Fortune 500 companies to startups negotiating financial transactions within the banking and technical fields.

Thanks to DevBootCamp for the great space!

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.

Please note that we cannot issue refunds, since there's an overhead to issuing refunds via and we already offer the workshops at such a low-cost. We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund.

    Hi, I'm happy to share my own notes on this topic with all of you. I learned these strategies from a recruiter and his tips helped me make a very big jump in salary last year for position as a fe dev/designer.

    I can't attend, but I'd love to know if there are other strategies/tips that you can share.

    Will this be geared towards developers or other kinds of tech roles: Prod Management, Strategy, etc.?

      I would say that it covers all roles, based on my attendance at the last two workshops.
