This Is How You Negotiate Salary When You Are About To Be Hired by oluwaskulboy(m): 8:57am On Feb 13, 2017
In the realm of recruitment, the salary is one of the most fundamental elements that eventually decides the outcome of the hiring process.
For the employer, it determines whether a candidate will be hired or not and for the prospective employee, it plays a vital role in whether the job offer will be accepted or turned down.

Interestingly, salary negotiation is usually considered a part of the interview process.
Salary negotiation is the process whereby an employer and potential employee discuss and reach an agreement on how much will be paid for the services, knowledge, experience and skills the potential employee will be bringing to the company.

This process often begins with an offer from the employer, which is usually met by either a request to review or acceptance from the potential employee.

In some situations, the offer from the employer comes with a deadline for consideration of the offer. In cases like this, the salary negotiation happens over a specified period of time; at the end of which the offer from the hiring company is either accepted or turned down.
The salary negotiation, when successful; that is, if the potential employee accepts the offer, is followed by an employment offer from the employer.

Meanwhile, you should bear in mind that besides the salary itself, every item within the salary structure is negotiable and these include hours of work tied to the salary, designation, severance pay, the benefits package, policy on public holidays and much more.

Salary negotiations are very important for both the employer and the potential employee because if not well anchored, the aftermath plays out in the form of disgruntled employees or an overpaid employee who doesn’t deserve what he earns in the estimation of the employer.
Such an employee would, therefore, be considered ineligible for any form of increase in compensation over a given period of time.

Below are 10 tips that put you in a stronger position to negotiate for a higher salary.

Anticipate hard questions
Understand the difference between Gross Salary and Net Salary
Make a request for offer review
Strengthen your negotiation with research
Don’t constitute a nuisance
Re-emphasize your availability and interest
Approach it as a business deal
Practice as much as you can
Who are you negotiating with?
Bring something impressive to the table

I hear u. All these oyinbo articles u people are trying to practise in Nigeria setting will keep more people jobless. Shey its those employers that already have a pay structure for different category of staff that will want u to negotiate salary or those that already made up their mind not pay pass a certain figure, that u want to negotiate with?

Except u are an expatriate or coming in with wealth of experience, then forget about it.

From experience, this only works well when you have a job already and you are moving to another organization.

First time job seeker and you are yarning beans? No worries.... you go jam your CV for bus stop when you buy akara and pomo.

In Nigeria, salary negotiations are not applicable to very big coys especially if the job is for graduate trainee. You take whatever you get...except if you're referring to those little 'one man' businesses.

Have made mistakes about this salary issues at an interview before and would have gotten the job but all the same I thank God saa... One thing you should do is have it at the back of your mind the salary range you want ..before going for the interview you should have a salary quotation at the back of your mind ...so don't waste time poundering on it when being asked

Op i can tell you for free as someone who is deeply involved in hiring staff that unless the company needs you(your unique talent) more than you need the company , you cannot dictate what your salary will be. Some organizations have a salary band for certain positions and more often than not you will be accommodated within that bracket. With the current state of things in the country, you will often find someone who is as qualified if not better qualified and who is willing to accept the salary you think is too small for you.

Re: This Is How You Negotiate Salary When You Are About To Be Hired by jinxet2000: 2:08pm On Feb 13, 2017
Often times, the wiser way is to find your way in first then work hard to become the best and then you can renegotiate your salary, then you are indispensable. Otherwise, the recruiter will tell you that they will get back to you and you will wait till ancient and modern. Next you call to know what is going on, they will tell you that the position has been filled. I am not saying that you should not negotiate but know when you are pushing beyond boundaries.
