Tips to Negotiate Salary & Benefits | Virtual Lunch & Learn

October 14, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A virtual lunch and learn focused on a workshop that highlights negotiation tips in the job and interview process


Hear from talent acquisition and HR representatives about job negotiations. During the interview process, we often hear that applicants do not know nor feel comfortable with negotiating for salary and other benefits. Learn new techniques and hear from experts for how to approach these situations so that you can set yourself up for success.

We will discuss different techniques, tips and examples to help you hone your negotiation skills and improve your confidence in the interview process.

The lunch and learn free and is open to all students, alumni and job seekers.
