Room for Negotiation

Did you recently find a new job?  Research indicates you shouldn’t always settle for the salary you’re originally offered.

Robert Half International, a staffing firm, recently conducted a survey and found that many bosses are willing to negotiate salaries.

“Job-seekers, especially those with skills in high demand, are gaining leverage in salary discussions today,” said Max Messmer, CEO and Chairman of Robert Half International.

According the the study 38% of executives are more willing to negotiate new hires salaries than they were last year, only 5% reported they were less likely to negotiate this year.

If you are a qualified candidate for your new job consider asking for a higher salary, better benefits, etc.  New research shows your boss may be more open to negotiating than you think!
