In summer 2019 I started working with Pragnya. Since day 1, she has been an excellent recruiter that I look up to. Not only is she extremely sharp in her industry insights, she is also a fierce advocate and negotiation expert for underrepresented groups in tech.
Pragnya taught me so much in my work, I cannot be more proud and excited to introduce this collab! What questions do you have for her on negotiation? She’ll share her tips in an upcoming newsletter ✍️
Are there any resources to determine the 'average' salary given number of years experience in a specific field?
Is it better to ask for too much and be pushed back?
How often should you be discussing your salary with your current employer?
Is there a bulletproof way of expressing/verbalising your salary expectations? Like, one that always works? Personally I hate being asked "how much do you make?" as a basis for negotiating my salary expectations, since the conversation is not about my current job but about my next one... therefore I change the direction of the discussion by simply responding "I want x". Any advice on how to improve my game besides this simple tactic?
