Graduate Students: Evaluating and Negotiating Job Offers
We will be outlining tips, information to gather, and questions to ask, to help you effectively navigate the job offer negotiation process. Many job seekers view a job offer only as the amount of salary an employer extends. It is important to understand that the job offer is a comprehensive package of benefits, which include insurance, vacation and other paid time off, 401K/retirement plan. Other factors include location, possible bonuses, profit sharing, and promotional opportunities. The job offer negotiation process requires gathering information about yourself, your target sector, and the employer, and having conversation with the employer.
