You've got that job offer or you're at work now and you need to negotiate a higher salary. I'm Gloria Campbell with Advantage Training Systems in St. Petersburg Florida. Negotiating a higher salary can be tricky. There are several things I want you to keep in mind. One of the things you want to do is do some research. See what the salary range maybe for your particular job and your particular experience in your general geographic area. In most cases if you are worth the money a company will give you a little bit more. So, in negotiating that salary make sure you understand what you're qualifications are and how they kind of stack up with other people in that position either within the company or outside of the company. Make sure what you know that you bring to the table that's special. Always ask for a little more than you expect to get, because that's where the negotiation comes in. You can always ask for a little bit more, you can always try and negotiate for a higher salary. You're not going to get it unless you ask for it. In some case employers will say "Oh, I expected to give you a little bit more. I just started low." Keep that in the back of your mind. Do your research and make sure that you always ask for a little bit more, maybe than you expect to get. My name is Gloria Campbell. I'm with advantage training systems in St. Petersburg Florida. You can negotiate for a higher salary; a new employee or an existing one.
