Why sign up? According to research, only 25 percent of students report feeling confident that they can successfully negotiate a good salary and benefits package. This is especially significant for women negotiating their first salary. After attending a Start Smart workshop, a majority of participants report feeling more confident about in their negotiating ability.
Attendees will gain valuable salary negotiation skills by learning:
- how the gender wage gap affects their lives
- how to develop a personal budget to determine salary needs
- how to benchmark salary and benefits
- how to negotiate for a salary--especially their first salary out of college
