Pushiness pays when negotiating for a new job

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources,Leaders & Managers,Performance Reviews

The average U.S. worker changes jobs every 41/2 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. So prepare now for what you’ll ask for during a job switch, even if you’re not aggressively job-hunting.

Consider these increasingly common requests:

1. “Mate” benefits. With more unmarried job hunters on the prowl, some employers help a top candidate’s partner land a job. Examples: résumé preparation, career counseling and even hiring the significant other.

2. Permission to moonlight. Once an employer agrees to let you work from home, don’t stop there. Ask if you can accept free-lance work on the side, as long as it doesn’t interfere with your job.

3. Profit sharing. Forget negotiating more frequent performance reviews. You can still wind up with paltry raises. Instead, seek a cut of the action if you deliver bottom-line productivity gains.
