The best way to go about negotiating a salary is to do your homework first. Figure out how much the standard rate is for your desired position. First, you’ll feel more at ease when you meet with your potential employer and second, it will show him that it’s not just about wanting more money – it’s about the current market and how much you are worth.
So where do you find out about the going salary for your area?
Ask colleagues, talk to recruiters or even go online and review salary range research like that provided on websites such as Glassdoor and Indeed. Just make sure to search by location.
