Q I’m job hunting, and I’m a big believer in interviewing for virtually any job that I’d even slightly consider. One employer is about to make me a job offer. I don’t really want the job but I want to complete the process. That’s OK, right? A friend says it’s wrong to negotiate if I’m not going to accept any offer.

Even if you’re sure you won’t accept the job under any circumstances, you never know what will occur in the final negotiating stage. An employer may offer you a higher-level post or make it impossible for you to say no. And every time you discuss job offers, you can practice negotiating.
