I was recently asked how to negotiate if the initial offer exceeds one's expectations, which is especially likely if you were previously underpaid, or are the first in your community to go into tech and encounter these kinds of compensation packages. How do you ensure you don't leave money on the table without risking an otherwise fantastic offer getting rescinded?
In my experience, offers don't get rescinded if you go about the negotiation in the right way, meaning: be polite, be direct, and most importantly have a real-time conversation.
It might feel easier to write an email, but that short, stressful negotiation conversation can be a game-changer.
In this video I role play the conversation so that you can practice ahead of time, and be less stressed and more effective in a real negotiation.
Try it on for size, and let me know how it goes.
