Learning negotiation skills

The Career Office helped me negotiate a higher salary.

I worked with a team member in the Career Office during my last semester. She was such an amazing resource, providing me with starting points for the job search and helping me perfect my first cover letters and resumes. In the last few weeks, I worked with a different team member who helped put me at ease about the interview and negotiating process and helped me practice my handshake. She even took time to speak to me on the phone so I could practice my counter offer script - which helped me get a $2,500 salary increase.
