  • 2. Introduction
    • Many people are anxious about the job offer negotiation stage. Discussing salary and compensation can make them uncomfortable. The anxiety might come from lack of experience. The discomfort might come from a negative mindset about placing a dollar value on ourselves and our competence. So, to get comfortable with negotiating, the best thing to do is approach it with the right attitude and to develop your skills.
