Get Your Money Honey
Salary Negotiations Masterclass

Negotiation starts way before an offer is even discussed.

In this virtual class with Alison Taffel Rabinowitz from The Finishing School, you will learn best practices to increase your confidence, salary and total compensation.

  • Are you underpaid and undervalued and ready to look for a new job?
  • Do you have trouble advocating for a raise because you can’t find the right words?
  • Do you always just say yes to the first offer?
  • Do you lack the confidence to negotiate even though you know you’re worth more?
  • Do you agree that spending less sucks and making more money would be much more fun?

This class is designed specifically for top-performing women, female-identifying and people from underserved communities who want to learn how to earn a competitive salary and gain the confidence to own their worth. Jam packed with valuable strategies for all career negotiations, this class is especially ideal for:

  • Recent graduates
  • Career pivoters
  • Current job hunters or folks negotiating within a current role
  • New parents rejoining the workforce

What you’ll learn:

  • How to position yourself as a top performer in the industry
  • How to catalogue and brag about your professional wins
  • How to do research around salary range
  • How to respond when they ask your salary requirement
  • How to respond to a low-ball offer
  • How to handle yearly reviews with managers and ask for a raise
  • and more…

Remember, every successful salary negotiation is a cumulative benefit, and your salary will almost always continue to increase from there. If you negotiate a $5,000 salary increase for your first job, that single salary negotiation will be worth tens of thousands of dollars to you over your lifetime. If you never negotiate, you could lose over $600,000 or more by the time you’re 60. There’s no better time to learn and earn thousands of dollars more than your original offer in just a five-minute conversation or email.
