The Five Question Salary Negotiation | JobSearchRadio.com

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains how to negotiate your job offer with just five questions.

Summary

Let's talk about negotiating salary. You've got the offer. Everything seems great but you want to do a bit more negotiating. Here is the 1st thing you do: if you feel comfortable about what is been proposed but you just want to increase a little bit, here's the idea.

You'll be asking a few questions but I don't want you doing it right away. I want you to say, "I'm thinking favorably. Can I come back to you in a day or so to have a couple of questions answered. I just want to make sure I do this 1 time so that were not going back and forth. He give me a day here to think about it and circle back to you?"

Think of it from the hiring manager's perspective. He or she thinks right away that you're going to be coming back about money. As a result, when you come back to them, the 1st question that you ask is NOT about money. It should be about anything BUT money.

Consider asking when you get into the 401(k). When you become eligible for benefits. Something softball that will cause them to relax a little bit and think for a 2nd, "Ah! This isn't going to be so tough!" Then, the next question is going to be about reporting relationships. Who are you going to report to? What are they like? If I'm reporting to you, who do you report to? Who do we service? Things along those lines.

The 3rd question is always a big one. You want to go to your most important question 3rd. I prefer you not deal with money here and keep that for a little bit later in the conversation. Here, you might ask about whatever your critical issue is. Maybe, is that you will be taking a trip and it is prescheduled and you want them to know about it in advance. Maybe it is about bonus eligibility... Whatever it is, covered 3rd.

Then, you circle back and asked him another softball question. Do I work on a Windows device or Mac? Isn't that a softball question?

Now, for the money question, you have been building up to this one, see would say something like, "You know, I've been really thinking favorably about this opportunity. Could you do a touch better on the offer?" Normally, they will do 1 of 2 things; they will either increase it by a few dollars. The 2nd thing they might say is, "This really is our top number." You'll be able to tell if it's true by the sincerity of their voice. Whether that is true or not. You'll be able to use your "acute BS detector" to determine if that is the case. The 3rd response is to say, "I will have to get back to you. Is that a deal breaker for you?"

You can say no or yes; that will be your choice. Ultimately, if this is a dealbreaker for you, he or she is going to work that much harder to get the number or or say, "Forget it." It is all over at that point.

Assuming that it is not a dealbreaker, tell them that at the point. You're interested in joining, other firms been talking about more money with you, you have another offer at that price point, could they do a touch better?

That's the theory behind what I call, "The Easiest Way to Negotiate a Higher Salary for Yourself." That's 1 of my YouTube videos. Watch it. It is about 10 minutes in length, and I think it is very helpful.

But I wanted to stage salary negotiation for you here. Kudos to my friend Ellis Chase. He did this in a Forbes article very well. If you go to Forbes and search for Ellis Chase, he lays out this formula nicely,

EP 1342 I talk about the importance of talking yourself down from the cliff and how you should never split the difference.

Summary

I wanted to talk with you today about the importance of keeping your wits about you, especially as you go into a negotiation.

I'm sure you realize that there have been times where you've lost your cool, gotten into arguments with people, and just felt like destroying them. Maybe you've done it with your wife, husband or partner, maybe with a coworker or friend, and you started dredging up things from your collective past and started throwing it in their face. You start making threats.

How did that work for you? Did you really think that you would get what you wanted?

The result that you've gotten is that you thrown a tantrum. You were a big baby in an adult body but you are still a baby.

If you're trying to get your way in a negotiation with someone, if someone has said or done something that takes you off and you just lose it, I want to encourage you to just pull back a little bit and say, "I'm sorry. Something that you just said activated an old memory for me. Can we start this from scratch? I apologize."

The reason is you're just not going to win. All you're going to do Is cause hatred and resentment. You're not going to get your way.

That's why it's important to keep your wits about you and pulling back the reins at times.

You can even try to remember whose voice that is. Whose voices that that set you off? What's the memory you have of the similar situation back in time?

If this is a negotiation where money is involved, unless you concede the point there, you will concede money in the negotiation. And if they throw their hands up in the air and say, "Okay. Let's split the difference," never ever split the difference because the person who is offering that is getting their way. They are trying to make you think that it is "fair," And, frankly, it isn't.

Again, pull yourself back from the abyss, that crazy moment, when you lose it. Get a hold of yourself. Never ever split the difference when you are neg

Salary Negotiation: Understanding Deal Dynamics in a Negotiation | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook:
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

When you go into a negotiation of any sort, whether as a job hunter, a hiring employer or within an organization, this is what goes on underneath the surface.

Summary

Here, I'm going to talk with you about negotiating. Now. The truth of the matter is this is a video that's going to be useful whether you're trying to negotiate your job offer as a job hunter or as anemployer because the reality is deal dynamics exist in any situation anytime you're negotiating. These are the variations that you have to deal with. So, for you as a job hunter, you may hear an employer ask the question, "So, where are you in your search? What else is going on for you?" You know what? They're trying to find out? It's really very simple. What they're trying to find out is do they have competition, whether you have leverage to play with them, whether there's a situation where you as a job hunter can really bargain with them because, hey, it doesn't matter. You've got three things going on. Thus when you don't have anything going on, they think they've got an advantage and, thus, the correct answer for the job hunter is always ro say, "I'm very close to two other things right now. I really like this one a lot. But, the reality is, as I said to someone yesterday, you may not have noticed this but there's no one with my name on. Forbes or Fortune list of wealthiest Americans so compensation's important to me. Thus, I want to encourage you to make your strongest offer because I'm confident other firms are about to do that, as well. Thus, what you've done is signal to them that, "hey, you know, they don't have the leverage here. They can't really push your buttons and say, 'you know, you want to keep looking for a job or do you want this job,"' especially in recessionary times where people don't really have choices. It's always very important that you indicate that you certainly will have choices, you're about to have choices and not give them that advantage because, ultimately, this is a question that signals who wants this more. And the one who wants it more is more willing to compromise. Do you want to compromise? And, for you as a hiring manager who's in a situation hearing this, often, if this is your first choice ,you're starting to look at your second choice as a possibility but stick with your first one and ride that out because you never know if they're bluffing or not. Is there a time constraint here? Like, does the employer have to bring on someone by end of year, by end of budget year, some other variable because they have to start a new project. You know, what's making it, right now, that they want to hire you and, thus, what alternatives do they have? Now, Sometimes an employer's going to try and regain leverage by saying, "Well, I have two other people I'm talking with on finals. What's your timeline?" Or, "I have two other people that I'm talking with," and they're signaling to you that, much like you've signaled to them, that you have choices. They're trying to say that they have choices, too. That's fine.
Job hunters often respond with that knot in the pit of the stomach that says, "I'm gonna lose this," and the idea is you always want to draw them in and, for you as the employer, you never want to give your leverage away because the reality is, ultimately, yes, you will have other choices. You've decided this is your first one but you want to get them at the right price, right?
Ultimately, what you're trying to do is to see who wants it more. What alternatives exist? What's the timeline for decision making? Can you move the needle forward right now? What's the real price point to complete the transaction?
And, you know, ultimately, when I think about most negotiations from a comp perspective, for job hunters or employers, one side really wants it more than the other and is willing to make fewer accommodations to the other side.
So, I want to remind you these are the deal dynamics and, once you're on board, there are other situations where you dealing with deal dynamics, as well. This subject is going to surface time and time again and you need to remind yourself, even in internal situations who wants this more? Who has the leverage here and how can you get what you want out of the situation without excessive compromise.
Notice, I used the phrase "excessive compromise," rather than compromise. Ideally you want to do without compromise.
I've got a lot more content about salary negotiation. If you go to www.JobSearchTV.com, that will take you to my YouTube channel, or you can visit my website, TheBigGameHunter.us

EP 1281 There should be a pact between people not to  try to do this and respect one another.

Summary

Let me check something out with you.

If you send me a resume and said you made $150,000 and I called you up and we had a detailed interview and I said to you, "Great! Your background looks terrific!  Our client can only pay $130,000. Isn't that great?"  You would be angry at me, right?  You be angry at me for wasting your time for expecting you. That you would do something that only a fool would do.  Take that big a haircut.  Yet, when people send their resume to me, and my advertising or my outrage or my communication with them, says, "This is the salary level. My client pays and we do the exact same thing in reverse, and you turn around and say, "Well, they should be paying $20,000 more," after I've spent 20 freaking minutes with them, didn't you read?  Did you see what I communicated?

Why do you waste my time?
This happens all the time. Job hunters think, and consultants. In particular, think that it is okay to go through this game but if you were reversed, "All, terrible, terrible."

So, I just want to encourage you, be mindful of other people's time.  Just because you've been treated badly in the past doesn't give you permission to treat others badly.

It's not like, "Okay, I got the bad experience.  Let me give it to someone else."  Then they can give it to someone.  No, it is not supposed to work that way.

We all have a responsibility to put into it in our work.  You don't get a pass because someone treated you badly. I don't get a pass because someone treated me badly. I still conduct myself as I commit myself to do.  In a forthright and honest way.  Communicate best information wherever possible and saying, "I don't know. Let me get back to you."

I will do that all the time.  However, I am not going to waste someone's time with the game like the one I started this podcast with.  Why do you?

I will simply say, that for many of you, you just don't know that it's the wrong thing to do.  As a matter of fact, for many of you (I have to say many because I just see how job hunters go about their business), you act as though the skills needed to find a job are not different than the ones needed to do a job.  Most of you are not capable of job hunting.  You find the job by accident.  You go through a lot of trial and error. You learn on the cuff.  You get lucky!  Someone hires you.  You think it's skill. But, all the way through, you are being shelled through a process that takes you through to this conclusion.

Visit JobSearchCoachingHQ.com.  This is a site where you are able to find information about how to search for work.  It is far better than what you will find in other places.  In addition, you can ask me questions about your search and I have no vested interest in which job you take.  It doesn't matter to me.  I'm there to help you to the best that you can on your search.

How Do I Get a Recruiter to Respond to A Salary Negotiation? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2018/03/19/how-do-i-get-a-recruiter-to-respond-to-a-salary-negotiation

EP 1048 There has been no response to emails or instant messaging. I don’t want to bother my boss. Why aren’t they getting back to me?

Summary

I was asked, "How do I get a recruiter to respond to a salary negotiation?"

The person has been an intern and they have made an offer to them.  The recruiter for this firm hasn't been responding to emails or instant messaging and the intern is frustrated.  They want to find out how they can reach this person for negotiating.

Here are a few points:

As an intern who is converting to full-time staff, you are small fish on their plate.  I have other, more important fish to fry, too.  HR has a lot of things on their plate; they have hiring managers who are demanding service; they are interviewing; they are trying to fill positions; they are writing a heads… There are many things that HR is doing… You are not a big concern for them.
This HR person may be out of the office.  They may be traveling. They may be doing campus recruiting, hence why they may not be responding to you.
You are right not to trouble your boss.  This is not a major priority.  If the rule, they offered you a job  and you have already done parts of this job before.  They will probably be asking themselves, "What's the big deal?  You knew what the price point was we brought you want for this internship?"
They just don't care.  There's no point or concern that they have, because, after all, it's not like you're the only intern on the planet or qualified to do this job.  There are others. Their desire to negotiate is really small.
Let me summarize for you where you stand.

On the one side there is a rock. On the other side, there is a hard place.  You are somewhere between the two.

If your goal is to just make the connection and they are not respond, send an email to HR with the subject line, "Are you okay?"  The message may read something along the lines of, "I have emailed and I am do you and had not received a response.  I have a few questions about the job offer.  Would you give me a call, please?  I just want to make sure you are okay?  My experience of you is that you would normally get back to me but since I haven't heard, I just want to make sure that you are all right."

That will usually "guilt them" into surfacing.

Bad Negotiating. Bad Interviewing. | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

EP 1281 There should be a pact between people not to  try to do this and respect one another.

Summary

Let me check something out with you.

If you send me a resume and said you made $150,000 and I called you up and we had a detailed interview and I said to you, "Great! Your background looks terrific!  Our client can only pay $130,000. Isn't that great?"  You would be angry at me, right?  You be angry at me for wasting your time for expecting you. That you would do something that only a fool would do.  Take that big a haircut.  Yet, when people send their resume to me, and my advertising or my outrage or my communication with them, says, "This is the salary level. My client pays and we do the exact same thing in reverse, and you turn around and say, "Well, they should be paying $20,000 more," after I've spent 20 freaking minutes with them, didn't you read?  Did you see what I communicated?

Why do you waste my time?
This happens all the time. Job hunters think, and consultants. In particular, think that it is okay to go through this game but if you were reversed, "All, terrible, terrible."

So, I just want to encourage you, be mindful of other people's time.  Just because you've been treated badly in the past doesn't give you permission to treat others badly.

It's not like, "Okay, I got the bad experience.  Let me give it to someone else."  Then they can give it to someone.  No, it is not supposed to work that way.

We all have a responsibility to put into it in our work.  You don't get a pass because someone treated you badly. I don't get a pass because someone treated me badly. I still conduct myself as I commit myself to do.  In a forthright and honest way.  Communicate best information wherever possible and saying, "I don't know. Let me get back to you."

I will do that all the time.  However, I am not going to waste someone's time with the game like the one I started this podcast with.  Why do you?

I will simply say, that for many of you, you just don't know that it's the wrong thing to do.  As a matter of fact, for many of you (I have to say many because I just see how job hunters go about their business), you act as though the skills needed to find a job are not different than the ones needed to do a job.  Most of you are not capable of job hunting.  You find the job by accident.  You go through a lot of trial and error. You learn on the cuff.  You get lucky!  Someone hires you.  You think it's skill. But, all the way through, you are being shelled through a process that takes you through to this conclusion.

Visit JobSearchCoachingHQ.com.  This is a site where you are able to find information about how to search for work.  It is far better than what you will find in other places.  In addition, you can ask me questions about your search and I have no vested interest in which job you take.  It doesn't matter to me.  I'm there to help you to the best that you can on your search.
