Everyone deserves to make the most of their career opportunities, but it can be difficult to discuss compensation expectations and negotiate an offer. This workshop will give you a concrete mental model and specific statements you can use for two common candidate situations:

1. Discussing compensation expectations at the beginning of an application
2. Negotiating an initial job offer after interviewing

For those interested in getting a raise, we can discuss some helpful communication and self-advocacy techniques at the end, too.
