On Your Way to Negotiating Your Salary

Check out this quick guide to negotiating your salary from the Office of Economic Empowerment.

On average, women in Massachusetts earn 83 cents on the 1 dollar compared to men. Here are 4 things to keep in mind when negotiating your salary.

  1. Pick a salary range. Research what similar jobs make in your area.
  2. Remember to negotiate benefits: vacation time and health care.
  3. Know your rights. As of July 2018, employers can’t ask about your salary history.
  4. Do what’s comfortable. If negotiating in person makes you nervous, you can always follow up later.
