PODCAST: Trolls, how do you decide who to harass online? Wait, Taylor Lorenz already knows
Just a reminder and friendly PSA: PLEASE negotiate your starting salaries!
I recently hired 6 individuals (3 men and 3 women.) All 3 men asked for either more money or more benefits. We met each of their requests because we expected them to negotiate (we actually had dollars on reserve to meet the anticipated counteroffers.)
Sadly, none of the women counter-offered, but instead accepted without pushing for more $ or benefits. I had ($5K-10K on reserve for each woman candidate that she could receive in additional yearly salary.)
As a woman, it broke my heart to see the disparity in negotiations between both sets of candidates. The women would have easily received the additional yearly $5K-$10K if only they had asked.
Always, always negotiate!
