Are You Underpaid?

Kim Lankford / Monster Contributing Writer

Recall Your Hiring Circumstances

Did you accept the first offer? That could be a red flag. “Rarely will recruiters make their best offer as their first offer,” Miller says. “They expect job candidates to negotiate.” And remember: You can negotiate salary, benefits, a signing bonus, equity or a flexible schedule.

Network through your professional association, and talk with people who work or worked with the company to find out which strategy likely will be most successful — some companies are known for higher-than-average pay, while others may not have extra cash but will negotiate on flexibility.

Miller also recommends asking about training, which tends to be important long-term. “That increases your value in the future,” he says.
