How to Negotiate Your Salary
Negotiating your salary can be tricky and uncomfortable...but it doesn’t have to be that way. Founder of Ladies Get Paid, Claire Wasserman, has developed a salary negotiation class that breaks down jargon and makes a scary subject accessible and empowering. The skills learned—understanding and combating bias, anxiety-relieving techniques, confidently talking about your accomplishments, eliminating imposter syndrome, and calculating your market value—can be used in more than just salary negotiation. When you leave, you will view negotiation as an opportunity.
- Shift your mindset to view negotiating as an opportunity (really!)
- Understand your market value so you know how much to charge
- Make the case if they don’t have budget
- Talk about your accomplishments in a way that gets you rewarded
- Calm your nerves
Bonus: Scenarios and scripts
“I'm truly so grateful to you and the whole Ladies Get Paid team. I would not have asked for what I deserve without you, and that would be a real shame. Thank you for giving me the tools I needed to feel confident in my negotiation.”
“I'm following up to say thanks once again for all the help you provided me before my negotiation. It went so well and I know for sure that I felt equipped because of all the amazing tools and resources you sent me."
"Claire: just a message to say that the work you're doing is super important, that you are a badass, and that there are literally thousands of women who have your back as you push to create a better world for all of us."
