About this event

When preparing for an interview you are going over your CV, listing your achievements, thinking of your strong and weak points, and going over some technical questions. And then comes the question - what is your salary expectations?

Let's focus on that one question: how to know how much you want? how to negotiate it? should you ask for 20% more because it will be negotiated? maybe 40% more? should you compromise for 30% less because you really want that job? how to convince the other person you deserve more?

For all this and more, join our panel! We have some amazing ladies who will discuss these questions, share their experience and give valuable tips.
