Negotiate Like a Pro in Any Scenario!

Lauren Milligan

Tuesday Sept 24th 2013 at 7:00pm
Wheaton, Illinois Institute of Technology - Rice Campus, Room 103


Before you are assigned a desk and the shiny new box of business cards arrive, there are many rounds of negotiations that can take place during the hiring process. This presentation will shed light on the most successful negotiating tactics, including crucial steps that you must take before the negotiating stage begins. This interactive workshop includes a lively group exercise where the participants get to try out the tactics shared in the presentation. The strategies you learn at this presentation can be implemented anytime - from salary negotiations to deciding which movie to see on the weekend!

Once we have finished, we will adjourn to nearby Cozymel's Mexican restaurant for food and drinks.

Handout can be found here.
