You successfully navigated the interview process, and the employer has indicated that you're their number one choice. Your excitement is quickly tempered when the employer extends an offer of a financial package that doesn't quite match your expectations. You don't want to turn the job down, yet you'd have difficulty accepting it on the terms presented to you.
Ed Hallenbeck, Career Consultant for Excelsior College, will discuss how many job applicants struggle with negotiating compensation for a variety of reasons, but the time to negotiate is when the offer has been extended because employers now have an emotional investment in you. This informative and engaging Web chat will provide practical and proven advice, techniques, and strategies for making the best choices in getting the right offer.
Ed Hallenbeck, Career Consultant for Excelsior College, will discuss how more and more "baby boomers" are going back to work, either because of interest or financial necessity. As a matter of fact, the United State Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that professionals older than 55 are the fastest growing segment of the workforce. But looking for work in your fifties or later can present a set of unique challenges and complications.
Are you a mature worker who is finding it difficult to face the challenges of a job search with renewed energy, confidence and enthusiasm? If so, than this informative and engaging Web chat will provide practical and proven advice, techniques and strategies for your 50+ job search.
