Hates Negotiation; Wants to Negotiate Professionally

Q. I’m angling for a promotion. The problem is the new job would involve negotiating contracts, which I hate. I’ve said as much to the person who would be my boss. How can I overcome my dread and make sure I get this job?

A. Maybe you’ve learned from this mistake: telling a potential boss your distaste for a key element of the job. Never announce that you “hate” negotiating or public speaking or firing employees. If asked, say you’re “always looking for ways to improve.” You’ve probably already received the kiss of death on this job. The only way you might redeem yourself is by telling the boss that you’ve thought better of your remarks and are practicing your negotiation skills. Also: Think twice about going after a job whose main duties include a task you hate.
