For many of us, negotiating our compensation package with a potential new employer can be a scary experience. In fact, almost 20% never negotiate their salaries. Fear and lack of confidence are the main reasons for not asking your real worth. But of the people who overcome their fear and do negotiate, many end up getting a bump close to 10%. So, learning to negotiate your compensation package is an important skill to learn.

 A little preparation involving knowing the value of your current pay, benefits, and stock options can help you know your market value and be better prepared to tackle future negotiation talks. Please join us for the upcoming WEST event on February 7 with financial advisor Beata Dragovics who will provide an overview of current compensation landscape within the life science industry in addition to key considerations before the leap to your next job.
