    This ECLI webinar will explore strategies for negotiating salary and other employee benefits during the hiring process. Offering the perspectives of a library director as well as a library science professor, Melissa De Santis and Emily Vardell will discuss the value of negotiating salary, as well as explore salary benchmark resources which can support effective negotiating. They will also discuss how identifying and quantifying personal skills can provide evidence for proving your worth. Finally, they will conclude with how to evaluate and negotiate benefits beyond salary including student-focused negotiation tips. The discussion of negotiating strategies and communicating techniques will provide a foundation for navigating these sometimes difficult conversations. The format for the webinar will be a presentation followed by a Q&A period.
