Techniques for negotiating salary
When it comes to the job offer and the part where both parties try to figure out salary, what tips can I use to try to negotiate a higher salary?
I know some methods are flexing your skill set and experience to make it seem like you're worth every penny. Even doing research to find out what would be the industry standard salary of the role ie using Glassdoor or LinkedIn premium. But what else can/should I do?
I had a scenario of where the HR person asked how much I was making in my current role, after answering, she promptly said the starting range of salary was at a figure $1000 more than what I'm currently making.
I wonder if she was being truthful or just making that up as part of some tactic - makes me think, if I gave her a higher fictitious figure, would she have still said that the starting range of salary is $1000 more starting?
Anywho, please advise me of some tips so I'm well equipped just in case an offer or two are made.
