Salary Negotiations, What Is The Right Approach In Todays Job Market? Learn From A Recruiter!
Salary isn’t everything, although yes it is important. There are many ways to negotiate a strong offer, and one should always keep in mind that the main focus should be “is this the right career move for me?” Too often do candidates get caught in a myopic view of an offer and lose sight of the big picture. Don’t focus only on numbers; things like bonuses, health benefits, growth potential, company culture, flex days, location, company reputation, and other perks can paint a much bigger picture and taking everything into account is paramount for making a powerful decision.
There are so many opinions about how to properly negotiate an offer. We see a lot of younger candidates go overboard and ask for too much money, or over-negotiate their offer. Being unreasonable does not make you look good and can put a sour taste in a potential employers mouth very quickly. Be smart and keep in mind there is always a difference between your market value and “actual” value. Think abut what you are asking for and remember keep in mind the big picture. Working with a recruiter is always ideal as recruiters can typically negotiate the best offer on your behalf without stepping on toes.

"Lily and the team at Aldebaran have placed me in my last two positions. During our sessions, I mentioned to Lily how much I liked Atlanta and my desire to find a position that matched my skill set and career goals. Lily made sure of this, and also understood my need for a good cultural fit."
"Not only did Lily accomplish these things, she keeps in touch on a consistent basis, just checking in to see how things are going. That's a lot more than I can say of many executive recruiting firms. I highly recommend Aldebaran Associates to anyone looking for that next career move, or any company seeking new talent."
