Final Negotiations Can Be Sensitive. You Need A Strategy.

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

In the last stages of accepting a job offer, there are often final negotiations that can be quite sensitive and nuanced. If you don’t handle yourself correctly, you could even risk having the offer withdrawn!

This article explores several real-world situations that our clients have encountered, and the strategies we used to successfully guide them through the process. I have included the actual wording, to make this information more practical and “real.”

Of course, every situation is different – and these exact phrases may not be appropriate in some cases. But these responses can be easily adapted. The important thing is to always have your strategy figured-out in advance and to practice it before your final negotiations!

You’re Invited – Career Success Seminar – September 26, 2018

The Job Seeker’s Toolkit

Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2018

A carpenter would never show-up at a construction site with only a hammer. A graphic artist would never interview for a design position without showing a complete portfolio. So why is it that most job seekers use only their resume as the cornerstone of their search?

Job seekers over-emphasize the resume because their other “tools” are weak or nonexistent. But the resume should actually be one of your least used job-seeking tools! Unfortunately, most people don’t know what these other tools are or how to use them.

By integrating these other elements into your job search – and not relying solely on the resume – you can add power, professionalism and flexibility to your efforts. Finding the right job and building a satisfying career is much easier when you have the right tools!

Career Coaching via Video Conferencing

Career Coaching Video ConferencingFor many years, we have worked via video conference with “long distance” clients (or local clients whose circumstances have made it difficult to visit our offices). Our coaching model allows us to work remotely and still provide exceptional levels of connection, quality and impact. We are happy to serve clients from anywhere in the United States and Canada via video conference.

Here are just some of the benefits of doing career coaching via video chat:

Time – clients save time by not having to travel to our offices for coaching sessions
Comfort – clients are often more comfortable working from their own homes or offices
Flexibility – clients experience fewer planning conflicts and more flexibility with scheduling
Convenience – clients who travel for work are still able to attend their coaching appointments by using mobile devices from anywhere

Career coaching via video conference is easy and effective. For more information, please visit: https://careerpotential.com/career-coaching-video-conferencing/.
