Negotiating for Yourself

A big part of negotiating for yourself is knowing what you want so you are intentional about the decisions and actions that you are making. 

Everyone’s career journeys are unique. However, what is common to those who find success is their ability to advocate for themselves and what they want at every opportunity.

Our panelists Andie Worsley (PitchBook Data), Karen Thyssen Raaberg (Templafy) and Emily Coleman (, shared some tactical tips for negotiating for yourself to achieve your goals.

Advocate for yourself and track your work.

It’s up to you to put your best self forward and keep a log of your own accomplishments. A good manager will check in frequently and have a good pulse on your career aspirations, but you can’t always rely on others to influence your professional development.

Employers expect you to negotiate.

When you are presented with a job offer, or are approaching a performance review, remember to stay true to your goals and communicate your benchmarks if they aren’t met. Managers often respect you more for speaking up.

Everything is negotiable.

In times when there isn’t any room in the budget for a significant salary increase, can you have more flexibility to work from home? More vacation days? Better benefits? Think about your offers as a package and approach the negotiation in a comprehensive way.

Nobody should care more about your career but yourself. You have to own it. Be in the habit of advocating for yourself at work whether it’s communicating your goals to your manager and having a concrete (written) action plan, or making yourself visible so that you can build relationships with those who can help you achieve your goals and grow professionally.
