Career Services Workshops – April 29 and 30

Career Services workshops for Wednesday, April 29 and Thursday, April 30.

Wednesday, April 29
Salary Negotiations
5-5:45 p.m. Perlstein Hall, Room 109
Do you know how to prepare for a job negotiation process, so that you don’t accept a job offer without understanding and discussing the salary and benefits? This workshop will teach you how to leverage your knowledge and skills to get the best possible compensation for your job, and avoid the most common mistakes job seekers make when given an offer. Specifically, this workshop will cover where to research salaries, what kinds of things to consider in this comparison (location, experience, degree, etc.), and how to review compensation packages like benefits, retirement, vacation, and more.

Thursday, April 30
Got the Job Offer: Now what?
1-1:45 p.m. Perlstein Hall, Room 109
If you have a job offer: congratulations. In your excitement, you may be tempted to accept the job on the spot. The way you accept a job will set the tone for your career, so it is important to take the time to go over all of the details first. There are many components to compensation packages beyond the salary, including hours, healthcare plans, retirement packages, vacation time, and more. It can be overwhelming, especially if it is your first job. This workshop will talk about accepting a job and understanding the different kinds of benefits, including perks and red flags.

Thursday, April 30
