Did you know that HALF of all workers did not negotiate their first salary?

Here's why: They think they should be lucky to just have a job, they don't know how to find their worth, they're afraid of losing the offer, or they simply didn't know that they could negotiate. Unfortunately, they're leaving thousands, even millions on the table.

How would you like to have an extra $5,000?

I surveyed former students and the average raise was more than $5,000, and 1 in 5 increased their salary by $10,000 or more! That's money that could be used to pay down student loans, decrease credit card debt, or be used toward a first apartment.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Accurately research your worth when entering the workforce
  • Navigate the early stages of an interview, avoiding online forms and low-ball screening questions from HR
  • Use a 5-minute body language trick to increase your rate of success
  • Implement the same negotiation techniques used by the FBI
  • Confidently say exactly the right phrases to secure the highest salary and get paid what you deserve -- without the fear of losing the job

What truly sets apart this course are the added modules you won't find anywhere else.

  • An interactive, role-playing 'hot seat' to practice your negotiation
  • Interviews with college counselors and detailed case studies, including an $11,000 increase from a single email
  • Advice on negotiating benefits, such as bonuses, flextime, relocation, and 8 more, as well as resources for women, non-profits, and startups

If you're a student interviewing for your first job and want to be part of the group that DOES negotiate, earn more money, and learn the salary negotiation secrets that they didn't teach you in college, sign up today.
