Are you looking to develop professionally, make a career change, or find a new position? Metro DC ATD’s Career Connections Webinars can help you connect virtually to share ideas, tips, and support. Each session also focuses on specific career development topic. Our topic for December is “Negotiating Your Next Job Offer” with guest speaker is Alan De Back.
Many job seekers don’t understand that they can negotiate their next offer. Not only is salary often negotiable, but a whole other range of benefits and flexible arrangements may also be open to negotiation. By participating in this webinar, you will learn both what you may be able to negotiate and how to handle the negotiation process.
