Grabbing Interview Opportunities

Can Salary be Discussed Without Risking an Internship Offer

Some candidates may find stipend negotiations to be the most difficult aspect of the interview process. Despite your desire to be compensated appropriately, the prospect of losing an internship offer due to pay negotiations might be intimidating. Pay negotiating queries are common and expected of recruiting managers. A job offer could be at jeopardy, though, if you make objectionable suggestions about the terms of the offer.

Can Salary be Discussed Without Risking an Internship Offer
Simply put, "yes," but only if you behave badly or disregard obvious cues that you shouldn't try to negotiate. Accepting a internship offer typically involves discussing salary. However, things might go wrong during negotiations, costing you the internship. In this article, we'll go over the mistakes to avoid at all costs during a salary negotiation.

Try not to act like a slob when bargaining.
Even though being sure of yourself is a good trait, it can backfire in interviews if it comes off as arrogance or a lack of understanding. If you aren't good at negotiating, you might seem rude and hard.
Since bargaining is a two-way street, you should try to persuade the other person to agree with you instead of trying to force them to.

Don't accept the current offer until you've explored other options to make it better.
The temptation to immediately answer "Yes, please!" when presented with a job offer that you've been yearning for is understandable.
This is why you should take your time considering a job offer before responding. Your company is relying on you to do this.

Take the deal if you are pleased by it, and it fulfils all your requirements.
However, the worst thing you can do is agree hurriedly and later come to regret it.
If you wake up the next morning realising you should have asked for a raise the night before, don't email the firm demanding it.
Now that you have accepted our offer, things may begin moving forward. If you can't make up your mind, you come across as indecisive at best and dishonest at worst. These are not traits that make you an attractive job candidate.

Research is essential, so don't miss it.
Before beginning a compensation negotiation, it's a good idea to double-check your numbers. If you're asking for a raise, you had better back it up with evidence. Finding out what others in your job and field are paid can help you negotiate a higher salary, as can showing proof that you are worth more. If the recruiter asks for an explanation, you must be prepared to demonstrate why you deserve the higher salary.
If you can't, others may assume that this is a reflection of your general lack of perspective.

Don't expect too much.
Negotiating a salary is normal practise, but your requests should be reasonable. It's possible that more funds are available than what is initially offered. However, you shouldn't act hastily and ask for £30,000 if you've just been allocated $15,000.

Before attempting to negotiate a better benefits package, be sure you've done your research.
Examine the benefits you've been given to see if there's room for change. You could be able to take a couple extra days off, or you might be able to leave 15 minutes early and take a cheaper train. Don't ask for a corporate car if you won't be using one and no one else in your firm has ever had one. When it's clear that you've already received the company's best offer, continuing to bargain won't get you anything.

If the employer is eager to hire you and gives you a salary that is towards the top of their salary range, you shouldn't try to negotiate a higher wage. If they say things like "We really want you, so we've stretched the offer to the maximum we can afford," you should believe them.

If you don't want to work for pay, politely decline the offer. Don't try to see how low you can go with your offer. If you've exhausted your options and the job offer comes with a greater income than the going rate, a comprehensive benefits package, and a review in six months, you should probably take it. If they are serious about having you, they will accommodate your every need. You need only thank them and express excitement about commencing work there.
