“I asked for $xx,xxx and she agreed! I can’t believe it! she didn’t even argue, she said it was a stretch but that it would be ok. They are drafting up the new offer and contract and I will sign it.  I did not expect her to agree so easily. I would have been thrilled with a lesser amount. It would never have happened without you! I owe you big.”

“And it’s finalized! I’m getting $xx,xxx.  My new boss was very nice about it. But I did hold my ground and I got $x,xxxx more. And I’m happy. And I’m happy that we had the conversation. That’s really important for me, and that it was a conversation and didn’t feel confrontational. Thank you for helping me frame that.”

“How to handle the salary negotiation was probably the most important thing I learned from Missy. Rather than just taking what was offered I learned what questions to ask before accepting and also learned that working at a state institution is quite a different ballgame than the private non-profit sector as far as salary increases in general. Going in knowing that I would be locked into a pay scale that would follow me through my career as a state employee rather than counting on bonuses based on performance reviews like I had received in the past was invaluable in approaching the negotiation. Having done my research on comparable positions, I was able to confidently negotiate a $2000 increase in the offer. That alone was well worth the cost!”

“I negotiated my salary even though I was SO SCARED…. but it was totally expected by the person that hired me and he was able to negotiate on my behalf with Human Resources. I received an additional $x,xxx in my annual salary. My annual cost-of-living raise and retirement plan contributions are now based on this higher amount and it makes a difference!!”

“I knew I should negotiate the offer but was nervous about the actual conversation and how it would go.  With one simple phone call presenting my case, they agreed and I got $3,000 more than they originally offered.”

“I truly appreciated how well thought out this workshop was! There are all those small details that no one ever thinks about that you covered!”

“After a year in my position, I was offered a promotion and reflected on material shared in the training. I negotiated for a 20% raise and got it- They knew I could deliver in my position and I went in to the conversation with the data to back it up!”

“Missy encouraged me to negotiate my starting salary by convincing me that it is important and giving me some language to use. Despite my natural reticence to negotiate and the fact that i was quite satisfied with the offered salary since it was significantly more than i had been making, I asked by phone and, much to my surprise, was given the amount I asked for as if it was expected all along. Now I will always negotiate before accepting a position, as i know there is nothing to lose by doing so!”

“This workshop was priceless! I was completely satisfied with it.”

“I always appreciate Missy’s candid opinion about any topic.”
