Mastering Salary Negotiation

Nov 18, 2014 · Raleigh, United States of America

Mastering Salary Negotiation will take place on Tuesday, November 18th at 7pm.
This workshop is geared towards improving salary negotiation skills for all occasions. For women in the technology, challenged with an ever present pay gap, it’s even more important to have a well-developed strategy. While the statistics may vary depending on the source, the conversation stays the same.

“Women in the computer technology industry earn an average of $6,358 a year less than men, factoring in education, age, region and occupation differences. Female engineering majors earn an average of 88 percent of their male counterparts' salaries a year after graduation. Female majors in computer and information sciences earn 77 percent of men with the same degree.”
We will focus on building a strategy that helps prepare you for salary discussions in an effort to close the pay gap in your life. We’ll clarify the role of a recruiter in various organizations and dispel myths about hiring managers. We’ll talk about negotiation tactics and how they vary with recruiters and agencies, or during promotions and annual reviews. This will include things you can be doing right now to be proactive and prepared like improving your resume, noting your key accomplishments, and being aware of how your role has changed over time. We can discuss your experiences and I’ll candidly share mine, both as a recruiter, and woman in a highly competitive industry.

    It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today's budding developer community is up to 91% male. There isn't a comfortable place where women can learn at their own pace and not be afraid to ask "stupid questions." We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a sup...
