Takeaways

Negotiating is certainly a stressful and complicated process, however it does not necessarily have to be so. Keeping the following ideas in mind will make you a more effective negotiator and will allow for smoother and more beneficial negotiations in the future.

At a time when the Job Market is increasingly volatile, the negotiation terrain can be difficult to navigate. At many companies, compensation increasingly comes in the form of stock, options, and bonuses linked to both personal and group performance. In certain campus recruitment scenarios, companies are using sliding-scale signing bonuses based on when a candidate accepts the job, complicating attempts to compare offers. With executive mobility on the rise, people vying for similar positions often have different backgrounds, strengths, and salary histories, making it hard for employers to set standard packages. However, job market complexity creates opportunities for people who can skillfully negotiate the terms and conditions of employment.
