Congrats, you made it! Not only did you complete four demanding years of college, but you applied for dozens of jobs, went through rounds of interviews and even negotiated a salary for your first job. And now you're ready for your first day of work. After you take an hour figuring out what to wear, be sure to let yourself relish the experience. The days will only get busier and more stressful going forward, so be sure to take it all in. And to help prepare you further, here's a good idea of how you'll settle in on your first day.
You went through multiple, rigorous rounds of interviews. You passed all their tests. They want you. The job is yours! You've now reached the negotiation stage. Congrats, you're almost there!. You want this job, and you want it badly. But you also want the best compensation possible. Never lose sight of the fact that your negotiation partner also wants you, too. They picked you out of all possible candidates, after all. So how exactly do you negotiate for what you want?
