If you are starting a new job and feeling it is a daunting task to negotiate about your salary then you are completely wrong. Even though this can be a challenge for you but make sure you always negotiate your salary if there is a position to do so. Now if you want a higher compensation these are the 3 things that you need to bring up while you are negotiating for it.
The vacation time
Wouldn’t we all love another week of vacation in our super hectic schedule? Well feel free to negotiate about your vacation time as most of the companies will prefer to give you a week off rather than to increase their costs and give you a greater compensation. Never hesitate to ask about your vacation and if you feel like it is too less then make sure you negotiate enough till they increase the vacation time for you.
The signing bonus
If your company cannot improve the salary that they have offered you then you can instead ask them for a signing bonus. However you will need to give your employer a solid number if you want to build an impression. The new employer will most of the times not want you to pay anything from your pocket so make sure you ask for a signing bonus.
If you are planning on getting a higher degree or pursuing your education further to improve yourself in the new job then you can definitely ask your company to cover your cost of education. Make sure you stress on how they will have a better asset if you improve your skill so it’s a win-win situation for both the company as well as you. They will be willing to pay whatever education costs that you are asking for.
