  • Salary Tutor: Become a Salary Negotiation RockStar

    by Jim Hopkinson

    You've networked like a politician, found your dream job, and nailed the interview. It's crunch time, and the Evil HR Lady leans back and asks: "Sooo… what kind of salary were you looking for?" Salary negotiation is a critical skill needed throughout your career, but one that no one ever taught you. Freezing up at this key moment can cost you thousands. You need to become a Salary Negotiation Rock Star. Jim Hopkinson will read from his book “Salary Tutor: Learn The Salary Negotiation Secrets No One Ever Taught You,” which uses storytelling, case studies, illustrations, and just the right touch of humor. Learn what to say and when to say it. Master successful FBI negotiation techniques. Harness your social media network to gather information. Create a one-of-a-kind document to secure the highest salary range. Based on Jim’s real-world experience at Wired, ESPN, and a tech startup, this presentation will help you get paid what you deserve.

    At 12:30pm to 12:50pm, Saturday 10th March

    In Ballroom G, Austin Convention Center
