- Next, open the Career Spots Videos tool - click on the Job Search tab and watch the videos on Salary and Negotiation, paying special attention to “Negotiating an Offer” and “The Salary Question” for specific tips. Be sure to download the Quick Tips associated with this video - it has links to sites you can use for your salary research.
- Begin your salary research by opening the Online Job Board - go to the Document Library of the Resources tab and use the NACE Salary Calculator. This will give you basic salary information based on the job and area to help you benchmark.
