Now is a great time to be negotiating a job offer. The current business environment gives new hires tremendous leverage to personalize job structures in their favor. Beyond just salary, consider:

  • Bonus or commission structure
  • Equity and stock options
  • Scope of responsibilities
  • Work from home vs. in-office time – workdays per week
  • Paid time off and start date
  • Educational reimbursements
  • Relocation reimbursement
  • Some tactics may backfire don’t try to leverage multiple offers against each other.

Always stay enthusiastic, flexible, and professional while negotiating – you may come away with more than you had hoped for. Get more information on savvy negotiating tactics at
