#74: What’s On The Table - Negotiating Your HR Job Offer

The HR Mentor

Jun 30 2023 • 28 mins

In this episode, I am going to talk about the most thrilling part of your HR job search. It’s the moment you have all been waiting for, hoping for, dreaming about, but also kind of dreading. It’s your job offer. This moment can be as exciting as it is nerve-wracking, and even though every job seeker wants one, it can be stressful to receive because now you have to make a decision.

Should you accept the offer you were given? Should you turn it down for a better offer that might come through from another employer you are talking to, or should you negotiate with the one in front of you? Argh…So many questions!

In this show, I discuss what’s on the table in an early career job offer. We will explore what you could possibly negotiate and how to approach and prepare for negotiation on each of the different terms and conditions.

I hope that by the end of this episode, you will know what you might be able to negotiate and how to prepare so that you can get what you want and, likely, what you deserve.
