Career Negotiation Strategies – Aug 3, with General Assembly & Martin McGovern, Co-Founder, Idea Lemon

With General Assembly and Martin McGovern, Co-Founder, Idea Lemon


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 The Muse 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. Plus, you can ask questions and get feedback during breakout sessions after the talk.

Please note that by RSVPing for this event you are agreeing to receive communications from The Muse and Hired.
