Not sure how to negotiate salary? It’s normal to feel nervous, but negotiating your compensation package is worth the effort. An increase in benefits or salary could positively impact your earning potential over the course of your career.

In this video, we analyze the salary negotiation process from start to finish, providing key tips at each stage. You’ll learn strategies for developing your target range, communicating pay expectations and demonstrating your value to a possible employer. Remember, negotiation is just a conversation between two people, so don’t hesitate to voice your goals!

Here are some key takeaways:

1. Do your homework! Know the lowest, average, and highest salary ranges for your position and remember to keep variables like location, experience, education and certifications in mind. Start your research with our free salary search tool: https://www.indeed.com/salaries

2. Remember that salary negotiation is a conversation about give and take. Ask for slightly more than your goal—employers will probably lean towards the lower end of your range—so be sure that number is something you’re comfortable accepting.

3. Be ready to give good reasons for why you’re worth what you’re asking for. Share your accomplishments, awards, and relevant experience. Check out these examples on how to negotiate: https://go.indeed.com/how-to-negotiate

4. If they can’t meet the salary you want, see what alternative forms of compensation they can offer, including signing bonuses, vacation time, or medical benefits. Learn more about total compensation: https://go.indeed.com/base-salary-and-benefits

5. Be grateful and flexible through the entire process, no matter the outcome!

  1. I'm sorry but that was terrible forced acting lmaooooooooooooo

  2. This is a joke . It never goes like this . Greedy people never want to make the employee happy.

  3. “Mr.Krabs can I have a rai..”
    “Great job Mr.Square pants!”

  4. This is weird. Many recruiter will see you lazy because you are asking for 2 extra weeks of vacation before you even start.

  5. Negotiating $95,000 ? Let's be real 99% of people are negotiating far far less!

  6. This brother's suit cut was on point, can he hook a brother up with who his clothier is, or if it's from a store, which one?

  7. One time during interview employer asking what my expectation. I only raised about $1-$2 which is market rate and hoping for counter offer but what I got was "Thank you for your time" We will contact you if something changed. Never heard anything from them.

  8. This is highly unrealistic. Other than remaining positive and confident, the rest is a fairy tale style role play.. Its really dumb and terrible acting lol. There is literally almost no value here for any viewer…

  9. This is total fantasy here.. most employers have a set amount and know very well another lowball will happily work for almost nothing..so negotiations don’t go far ..why pay you $98,000 when i can pay 3 illegal workers $10 an hour or export over to India for 4 rupees a week do the same thing .. 🤷🏼‍♂️

  10. These people are master manipulators. Even if you are the best person they will try to negotiate lower. This is not a swap-meet or garage sale. Tell them what you want. Professionally decline any negotiation. Negotiations make you emotional. They feed on that. Hold your ground. Good Luck.

  11. I am jn sales. We do this for a living but our pay is all over the place. Have to find out if comp plan is attainable.

  12. I see in the comments that how many people get really insecure when real money is been talked in the video.

  13. If you are negotiating a salary for a remote job in a different city, how do I come to an agreement on salary? The cost of living in the city I live in is lower than the city that the remote job is located.

    Do I ask for the salary that the company is located or do I ask for a salary based on my current location?

  14. Lol, yeah you have to be someone very special for it to go like that!

  15. We want you on our team so will 22k be comfortable enough for you to live on a year?! Almost every graduate student and lower income people. 🥺😭😭😭🤣

  16. I think that last part was a joke to add some laughter Haha

  17. Always remember already have a job so that when you are offered something you don't want you are still okay. My younger years I was making mistakes back and forth by quitting and looking for jobs. Total wreck, do better.

  18. Finally!! A clear cut concise video. Much appreciated, will deff use these tips

  19. I cant believe Zane from Atlanta is giving me advice on how to negotiate salary.

  20. Shoot, I guess I should've watched this before accepting the job

  21. Job post tell that earn up to 35k so I apply. Got a interview and ask me what is my expected salary, I said higher than my previous job in a relevant industry . Got a final interview and still ask me what is my expected salary, but this time I ask what is the maximum salary for this job position they can offer. They say that the maximum is 35k, but it is base on the applicant experience. So I told them that please assess my job experience if this will meet your criteria. Ended up with a job offer that is very low (18k).

    Sad thing before the job offer they contacted me after the final interview and inform me that I pass. The recruiter tell me that they will give me 27k salary offer for approval. But before that they require me to pass a pay slip from my previous job. My previous job only pays 16k, yes one of the lowest salary I got since it is pandemic, I have no choice to accept that offer in that time.

    I think the reason why the Job offer is only 18k is because they base it on my previous job salary. But the problem is ,that job is not related to the job I am applying to, and it is a different industry.

    I am earning 25k on my previous previous job that related to the job I am applying to.

    Question is, It would be fair if they will base the job salary offer on my previous job that is not relevant to the job I am applying for?

    Also job post tells that they accept 12 months experience and 2 years is much better. I got a 1 and 1/2. Should I negotiate?

    The job position I am applying to is a specialist and the set up is a night shift. If you gonna compare it to my previous Relevant job, the set up is a day shift, job position or ranking is lil bit lower to a specialist, but they pay me 25k. Is it worth it if I still continue to this kind of company?

  22. 2:13 "That's impressive!" 🤣🤣 Said no recruiter or hiring manager, ever.

  23. This got me hired… and then fired 😂

  24. Better to do your own business however smaller it can be, than a job (modern slavery).

  25. Hi there,

  26. What was the point of this living stock photo!? 🤦‍♂️

  27. Asking more money, after a job offer? For what? Realistically, to get a dollar or two more? Get the fuck outta here, any person can be lucky, if that job is weekly pay. We have a recession heading our way, We can’t even catch up on the rent and bills, we are officially fucked out here in America.
