-- BCS Overland Park/Leawood, KS says that when negotiating an offer there are several key items to keep in mind. First, it's never a good idea to bring up money in the discussion until the employer asks or introduces it into the conversation. Generally, the company will ask the candidate what their current salary is or what type of salary he/she is looking for. The best response is to let the company know that he/she is interested in the position and politely ask for "a range " associated with the job. Once the range is given, it's ok to repeat the high end of the range back and ask what the next steps are in the process. This allows the job seeker to establish the compensation range without disclosing their current/past compensation. Also, it demonstrates an ability to negotiate which can translate to the company and ultimately impact the bottom line. It's extremely important to "know your number" prior to negotiating any type of compensation – this also includes benefits such as insurance, vacation, 401k, stock options, car/car allowance and severance package.
