$10K in 10 Minutes: A Salary Negotiation Success Story

March 21, 2013 by

Business meeting

If you are a management level employee and you don’t negotiate a job offer, you are potentially leaving thousands of dollars on the table. Unfortunately, many people simply don’t make a counteroffer when they receive a job offer. Why? Because they feel it’s awkward and uncomfortable. Or, they don’t want to risk losing the job.

We want to let you know that counteroffers are expected; especially for management-level employees. And, if you are willing to get past the nervousness of making a counteroffer, the reward can be thousands and thousands of dollars.

Yesterday we did a Salary Negotiation coaching session for a client. Based on the offer he received, we advised him to ask for an additional $10K and gave him specific strategies to do so.

He made 1 phone call last night; the conversation lasted 10 minutes. This morning he got a call that his offer had been increased by $10K!

When it comes to negotiating a job offer, the reward definitely outweighs the risk. The worst that can happen if done properly is that the employer can decline your request.

Would you like to get results like this? We can help. The key is understanding how much leverage you have, your market value, and having logic and data on your side. We also teach the importance of saying a few key phrases in a specific order so that you don’t appear unappreciative of the offer you’ve already received.

Did you know that our Salary Negotiation Coaching comes with a money back guarantee? Call us today for details at 214-431-5296.
