About This Event
It pays to be persuasive — especially when it comes to your career. Negotiation can lead to higher salaries, greater startup equity, and better titles, yet most of us accept the first offer we get because we don’t have the skills or strategies to try. Before your next career move, join General Assembly and Lean in to learn key negotiation strategies you can take to the table with confidence.
Throughout the evening, you’ll learn why negotiation is so important, the right (and wrong) ways to negotiate, tips and tricks for success, and how to graciously accept a disappointing result.
