Trust me, I get it: Speaking about money can be intimidating and uncomfortable. You might even restrain yourself from broaching the subject out of fear of losing the job offer. You know what’s even scarier? Not negotiating salary.
Landed a new job? Congratulations! Just received the promotion you’ve been gunning for over the past 2 years? Cue a little happy dance. Or maybe, you’ve been with your employer for a few years and have prayed to the money gods that you’ll finally be given a raise. Whatever the case may be, what you should be focusing your efforts on is negotiation.
