Ready to Negotiate Your Salary?

April 26, 2010

While many May 2010 graduates are still in the interviewing process, many have received a request from employers asking for their salary history or their salary requirements.  In most situations, students have completed “credit-only” internships that didn’t include hourly pay, so determining a fair amount could be a challenge.

In addition to the Career Center’s handouts on salary negotiation or one-on-one appointments with an advisor, you can also view various websites to research your “fair market” value.  These sites include http://www.salary.com, http://www.payscale.com or http://www.glassdoor.com. Read more on the Life 123 website about how employers determine salary ranges.  In the meantime, relax and know that salary isn’t the only item that can be negotiated.  Discuss options with your career advisor in the Career Center.  We’re more than happy to help!
