The stress you are sure you will be able to reach a mutually agreed amount. Do not negotiate a salary until you receive a job offer. In making the offer, the company is indicating that you are considered a valuable asset, so that puts in the stronger bargaining position. When asked at this time to express your salary requirements, be as specific as possible. Instead of an exact amount, the state and a large show that you are willing to negotiate.

Use the time to establish its value. Do not rush to accept the first offer of the employer. If the offer is unacceptable to talk again about the responsibilities and the importance of the task. Acute stress how it will work for the company and how much you feel you can contribute. Maintain a calm, friendly and professional at all times. Anticipate objections and be prepared to overcome them. Assess the needs of the company in advance and substantiate their claim for wages by showing how they will benefit from their skills, knowledge and experience.

Be creative in suggesting salary options. If the company is not able to offer a higher salary, they focus on the negotiation of co-benefits such as performance bonuses, company car, benefits, etc. Remember that you is negotiating your relationship with your prospective employer. Must be a collaborative process. Both sides will benefit from a successful outcome. Avoid conflict. Be firm but friendly in asserting their rights. If you are satisfied with the offer you receive, try to resist the temptation to accept on the spot. Instead, express enthusiasm about the prospects of joining the company and ask for a little time to consider the offer. In evaluating the offer, taking into account all relevant factors, such as salaries, benefits, responsibilities, location, environment, and promotion prospects. Once you have accepted the job offer and agreed to the salary and benefits, request a letter of confirmation.
