Negotiating – There’s harm in NOT asking
To negotiate or not – what have you got to lose?
Robert Half recently did a study regarding who negotiates.
Here’s some interesting age and gender data from that study.
Who negotiates? 39% of job seekers
Men – 46% Women 34%
Age : 18-34 – 45%, 35-54 – 40%, 55+ – 30%
A quote from that study was very informative:
“The dirty little secret in hiring, is for the most part we pay people what they’re willing to accept.”
What are you willing to accept?
