In this article, the writer explains that salary negotiation is the process of creating a consensus between the job hunter/employee and the employer on how much the latter will pay the former for his/her skills, knowledge and expertise. This process is primarily communication-centered; however, negotiating salary takes more than just simple verbal communication with one's employer in order to be successful. In this paper, salary negotiation is discussed in the context of different scenarios. However, while these scenarios differ in their nature, each discusses one element of salary negotiating skills. The writer concludes that scanning the industry one is in, combined with a thoughtful assessment of one's self as an asset to the company are the important elements that must be taken into account in order to be well-equipped and successful in the salary negotiating process.
