Spring 2021 Week 6: Negotiation Panel
On Monday, May 5th, WICS hosted a negotiation panel to prepare all kinds of job seekers to face the ultimate stage of the recruitment process: negotiating your salary and benefits. The panel consisted of experts on the topic, from IT recruiters to senior engineers. The event started with an audience poll for panelists to better understand what specific areas members are interested in learning more about. The panelists then answered general questions, giving members useful tips on how to start the conversation around negotiating, the big do’s and don’ts, and much more. The event ended with an open Q&A where WICS members got to ask the panelists more specific questions like the changes in negotiating since the COVID-19 pandemic.
