New-Hire Negotiations: Don’t Count Your Chickens Before They Accept Your Offer
Not quite yet.
New-hire negotiations require more than just an outline of what you plan to offer and a pen to sign on the dotted line. While some new-hires don’t really question their job offers, others do. You’d be wise to be prepared for some detailed back-and-forth with your new-hire candidate, with the goal in mind to satisfy everyone so you can all collectively get back to business—your business. It’s important to know your limits, to be prepared to field questions about benefits and pay ranges within your industry (the dreaded “going rate” that job seekers learn as they interview with various companies) and to be ready to explain your offer well.
We cannot stress enough how important it is to do your homework beforehand, and to present your offers in a way that focuses on the job and the future opportunities within your business, not just the salary. Staying calm through the process is also a plus.
