How To Negotiate Salaries

Learning how to negotiate salaries serves you well throughout your career. 

Know Your Budget

Your monthly budget is an underlying part of your salary negotiation strategy. Knowing your budget helps you identify your absolute minimum salary requirements. 

Know Your Worth

Whether you are asking for a raise from your current employer or negotiating a salary with a future employer, knowing the salary range for your position is crucial. Get an approximate range from sites like Payscale and Salary.com.  

Set Your Range

You could use 10 percent over your current salary as your target and twenty percent more as your ideal. Set a goal of negotiating a wage between your target and ideal numbers. 

Avoid Discussing Salary History

Some cities and states have banned employers from asking questions about salary history, but it could come up. Avoid disclosing your salary history if asked about it during an interview.
