Negotiating salary in a down economy
Know your value
Whether job seekers are new or seasoned, they should know exactly what skills they can offer. More experienced job seekers should not only emphasize their work, but provide specific examples of what they have done in the past to show what they can offer in the future. Less experienced applicants should show examples from past internships or schoolwork to prove their skills. This can include writing samples, letters of recommendations, and presentations.
