The best strategies for negotiating salary at a new job

Rounding it up

  • Negotiating your salary is almost always necessary to ensure you’re fairly compensated for the value you will bring to the company.

  • Always lead with gratitude and your desire for more money or greater benefits will be better-received.

  • Benefits are an important part of overall compensation, so don’t leave them out of salary negotiations.

  • Confidence is key. Know what you’re worth and don’t be afraid to ask for it; it will only help you in the long run.
