Negotiating Compensation

Congrats, you rocked the interview and have an offer letter sitting in your inbox, hot off the press. Now what? We will explore what can be negotiated in terms of salary, benefits, signing bonuses, and the rest of your compensation package. As well, we will explore tips and tricks on how to effectively negotiate with your new employer.

Notes about our venue:  Rogue Ale House provides space for our presentations free of charge as a service to the community.  Because of the serving of alcohol on the premises, our presentations are restricted to those who are 21 or older and can produce valid proof of age if requested.  Also, we request that outside food and drink are not brought into Rogue, as we would currently be forced to shut down this service if Rogue decided that we were no longer welcome.

    What about the cover letters that request your salary requirements.

      In general, I recommend avoiding the topic of salary for as long as possible. However, if the employer insists on a number, quote them something that is near the middle of the salary range you are looking for. If you quote too low, they will try to hold you to that number, and if you quote too high, you risk pricing yourself out of the position. We go into this in much more depth in the presentation.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
