How to Negotiate Salary and Benefits for IT Computer Support Job

  The salary and benefit negotiation of a new job offer can be intimidating. It can feel like a confrontation or argument. That is not the case in the professional market. These things should be considered obligatory, but important. A hiring company should be expecting a possible refusal of an offer and a possible counter offer. In a case where the hiring manager has an issue with this, that job might be a good one to pass on. Here are some tips for staying professional in the salary negotiation and keeping both parties happy. Know What the Salary Should Be You don’t want to begin the salary negotiation without knowing what the salary should be. Part of knowing what the salary should be is knowing your own worth in the job market regarding the position applied for. Take inventory of your experience, education, and accomplishments. These three things will help measure what the salary should be. Keep in mind that you may want to use this information to effectively sell yourself to the prospective employer. If you only meet the job requirements and not exceed them, you might still have an opportunity to present value in your traits while making a counter offer. How to Find Salary Expectations You shouldn’t have to look past your monitor for this information. During your job search, you should be keeping record of the advertised wage ranges for the positions that you’re interested in. How do those figures relate to the offer that you receive?

How To Create LinkedIn Profile That Stands Out

Making your LinkedIn profile shouldn’t be a difficult or complex task. You’ll have all the information that you need about yourself and job history. Being diligent and thorough is the most important part of making your LinkedIn profile great. I recommend that you have everything ready to go so that you don’t have a partly finished profile posted for weeks at a time.   First, you need a good headshot. If you’re new to the modern job market, you’ll have to put some effort in here. Loading up a pic from your Facebook page and cropping it just won’t do here. This is a step that is best with some help from a friend. Clean yourself up and put on a nice top. You don’t even need to wear pants to get a good headshot. It’s that easy. Follow some simple guidelines about lighting and showing some personality. Remember to make it look professional rather than cool. It can be awkward to smile and pretend to be approachable, but you must make your headshot show this. The more professional it looks, the easier it is for hiring managers to take you seriously. https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/professional-headshot-tips-for-budget   The tremendously important headline is the next thing people will see. This is essentially the written headshot of your profile that is often overlooked. You want this headline to focus on the type of position you’re expecting to get someday or at least to describe yourself exactly the way you want to be seen. This must be appropriate for the profession you’re looking at. Being short and direct here is best. No headline should contain...
