Five Myths of Salary Negotiation

In this video I debunk five negotiation myths that I've seen personally and from talking with candidates.

Do these ring true for you? Is there something I missed or got wrong? Are there other negotiation myths you want to debunk?

Please discuss!

Has anyone been given an offer only to have it rescinded? What happened?

Due to poor hearing[1], I cannot make sense of what is being said in the video. Considering that the video didn't have subtitles, I had thought about enabling Auto-Generated Captions, but they are only available for Korean (Auto-Generated), making it impossible to understand what is being said through reading the subtitles as I don't know Korean.

It would have been nice if there were subtitles or if you had posted a transcript here with the video. I will be grateful if you can enable English (Auto-Generated) captions for the video [if YouTube has that kind of feature].

Thank you.

[1] It is not a permanent condition for me, hopefully. So, if you cannot enable English captions, I will just watch the video after a few days.
