Negotiation Practice Makes Perfect
When you are not practicing,
remember, someone somewhere is practicing,
and when you meet him he will win.”
~ Ed Macauley, Hall of Fame Basketball Player
Employers have had a lot of practice in the craft of salary negotiation. So when you approach job-offer negotiations, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, keep in mind the time-honored phrase, “practice makes perfect.” Just as you practiced your interview answers, questions, strategies and techniques, practicing your negotiation scenarios will help you to perfect your performance and showcase your presence and poise at the negotiation table. In turn, your negotiation style will provide your potential employer with a preview of your business savvy.
