Are you prepared to negotiate a job offer? Recent LinkedIn research indicates that 42% of job-seeking professionals in the United States are uncomfortable negotiating; the study also reveals that many people report feeling nervous or anxious about negotiating. Failure to negotiate carefully is like money lost; however, there are things you can do to take the lead and get the compensation package you want.
