Hey all. So I graduated last month and have been searching for a job where I worked as an intern for a year. They offered me a job today, but the money offered was a little lower than I was hoping/expecting. Now, I know that it is acceptable policy to negotiate pay in this company, but I'm unsure of how to go about negotiating without risking losing the job offer. How would you negotiate an increased salary before accepting the job? Start higher than you are expecting and negotiate down, or just throw out the desired salary and hope they take it? Here's some useful information: - It is a large company (100k+ employees) - They have pay scales based upon job level (desired salary is within the pay scale of the offered salary) Thanks!
