Summary: Hiring Scenario Employee
You have interviewed with a local company.
The hiring manager calls you and offers you a job at $40,000 yearly base salary plus benefits.
This is a great company. Some of your friends work there and like it. You are concerned about health
insurance as you have a family history of depression. Depending on if you have another job offer, if you
are currently working, job market conditions, how confident you are and a few other specific factors
that vary with each situation and individual, you need to determine how much to ask for. Do not try to
negotiate the base salary and the benefits at the same time, as you will probably miss out on one of
them. We suggest you start with the base salary negotiations. Once you agree on a base salary,
negotiate additional benefits.
You are to negotiate the contract.
