I wish I could have done this sooner and saved more money. If you can pick up on those things, you can find wiggle room upward. First I checked a couple competitors websites and realized I was already getting a pretty good rate. That was an easy fix. They also let me know my fender bender a couple years ago comes off my record in October so I can negotiate a lower rate then. Plus they threw in basic insurance for when friends borrow my car not sure if that was already covered or not for free.
Overall a successful call! Great post! My mom is a great negotiator so I learned some of this growing up as well. I make a habit of negotiating some things, like the farmers market, every time. The individual savings are small, but doing it for every item for my groceries every week definitely adds up!
Kind of sheisty in my opinion for them not to say that I was already in their system when I joined? Today I received a bill from my new internet company. When I talked with the sales representative last month, he specifically assured me that there would be no installation or setup fee with this product. How can you help me to get this fee taken care of? Just gotta get out there and try it!
Sometime ago me and my girl went to get some fast food and ordered nuggets, it was late and I guess the person in front of us had ordered the last of them. When I had the opportunity to change jobs recently, I decided to aim pretty high when it was asked how much I was looking to earn.
Perhaps I left something on the table here, but then again, this was a lateral move for me albeit, to a better organization. The range I asked for started just above the market rate, and the offer came in even higher then my range. I think the very best negotiating tip I can provide is to do research on the market rate. Go to the very top of what you deem to be the reasonable range. Then, ask for a range that starts slightly above that amount and goes up. Worked for me. The hiring manager responded he had very little flexibility for starting pay but could go up to 31k, so I took it.
The results are amazing, and totally turn the tables in your favor.
I realized the dollar figure I was looking for was at the lower part of that range, and filed that away. When I got the initial offer from the hiring manager it was the bottom of the range the recruiter had told me about. From there, with the knowledge of what they had already allocated, I was able to negotiate to the upper end of the range, and get my moving expenses paid for by using another negotiating technique.
I always like asking for more than you know they can give.
In my first counter offer I asked for four additional things higher salary, signing bonus, no waiting period on k matching and an additional 5 vacation days. I asked for a final small bump in the salary and the deal was closed. Unfortunately, the HD programming with Comcast usually costs an arm or a leg. My dad had been talking about calling up and trying to convince them to give us free HBO for a few months for being loyal customers, but after reading some of the material here I decided that I would handle it and go for a bit more. Rep: Oh, I see. Me: No, that sounds interesting though.
How does that sound? Me: Perfect. But this is the year of the hustle so I have to break the wall and do this. Rep: I am good sir, thanks for asking, how can i help you?
Not significant at all but I love the feeling that I can do this. Rep: We will let you know by mail sir, it depends on the bank you will get it by February. I screwed up on this one, I could have pushed it more but I chickened out and didnt want to feel cheap and someone taking advantage. I am actually preparing for the salary increase talk, I just got a 4. However I wanted to ask you Ramit, if my company wont budge let say after I justify my increase with productivity, technical know how etc, I should be ready to jump ship right?
Obviously this is a technique that you use sparingly—not everyone appreciates a handwritten note. Woman: I don't know; My heart never gave me a choice.

Ross, wow that is awesome. When I negotiate, I will always ask. Last year I went to Vegas for a week and a half on the company dime. I asked my manager if I could attend for x business reasons. A few days later they told me looks like you are going since they were able to secure a round of funds to pay for conferences like these. They even said while you are at it go ahead and sign up for the courses you wanted to take as well.
I even got my labor paid for as well. If I had seen this blog post by Ramit before I started I might have gotten even better gains. I have my annual review scheduled for a week from today, and my boss already had to re-schedule it from this week to next week, so trying to push it back to this week is out of the question and leaves me no time to prepare.
Having some extra time to pull together my work will definitely help, though. Update: Well, my boss got sick last week, so once again my review got re-scheduled; I finally had it this morning. It went really well. My boss had great things to say about my performance, to the point that he made all the points I was going to make in my favor for me! When I first started my current job I negotiated for a small bump in pay for what they were offering.
It was important to me psychologically to take that step. In fact, I took a chance and e-mailed her about negotiating, and she gave me great advice! The HR person actually told me that not many women negotiate their salaries, and she wished she had when she was younger. Another way I gained points was writing my boss a handwritten thank you note after our interview. Obviously this is a technique that you use sparingly—not everyone appreciates a handwritten note.
You have to know your audience! Background: Currently job shopping to get better experience and a role that has better potential to get international assignment. The call went like this:. Is this a good time to talk? HR: Well, we got your application and I wanted to take a few minutes to ask you some questions before we send your information to the hiring manager. HR: Ok great, first, it looks like you have a great position at your current company, what makes you want to leave? This seems like a good position to help transition you to a more technical role in chemical engineering.
So, second question, how much does your current company pay you? Uh… Uh… is this something you are requiring me to answer as a part of the process?
HR: Well, we want to make sure your salary matches what we are able to offer you, to make sure it is worthwhile for both of us. Me: Trying as hard as I can to remember Susan and lift her dialogue Uh … uh well, I do not really feel comfortable answering that, but maybe you can tell me more about this position and when we decide that X Chemical Company likes what I have to offer, and I understand the expectations, we can come to an agreeable number for what people in my field make.
