While most people spend time perfecting their cover letters, résumés, and interview strategies, most people fail to prepare for salary negotiations when the job offer
comes—and some people don’t negotiate at all! On average, people who negotiate earn an average of $600,000 more over their entire careers than their colleagues who do not.
Dr. Emily Easton of the University of Chicago will cover the basics of negotiations including how to prepare, how to approach the conversation,
and how to determine what will be most valuable to you as a professional, no matter what field you are in. It also will include additional information on
how to approach academic and non-academic negotiations, with a focus on scientific careers.
