Evaluating Job Offers & Negotiating Salary

Wednesday, October 25th, 3:30 pm in MHC 124

How do you decide if you should accept the offer an employer has made to you? Do you know how to evaluate if the offer is a good fit for you? Are you aware of the key, non-salary items to consider and how to approach salary negotiations? This seminar will lead you through these important topics to educate you and increase your comfort level in evaluating and negotiating offers.
