Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

I have been offered a job, but the salary is lower than I was expecting. I really want the job, but I don't want to seem desperate or unprofessional by accepting their first offer. How can I negotiate a job offer in a professional way?

When negotiating a job offer, it's important to be confident and assertive. Start by explaining your reasons why you deserve a higher salary. This could include your qualifications, experience, or skills. Next, give them a specific number that you're looking for. Finally, be prepared to walk away if they're not willing to meet your demands. Remember that you are in control of the situation and don't let them lowball you.
