Thursday, September 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm • Organized By General Assembly Kansas City
Online Event


This session is part of Back To Work | Relaunch Your Career Post-Pandemic, a free week-long summit with the aim of getting your Career Back in Shape! Check out the full schedule here!

Does the idea of negotiating for money make you cringe? Do you have trouble figuring out what your worth is in the current market and how to command that in your existing or desired role? Let's fix that!

In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to prepare for a salary negotiation conversation. We’ll walk through negotiation tactics for two main scenarios: (1) when you currently hold a position in an organization and would like a raise and/or additional benefits or change in job; (2) when you are interviewing for a job in a new organization.


  • Understand what a recruiter can and can’t do, and how to adjust your negotiating approach accordingly

  • Evaluate how to improve a current or recent offer with a structured, systematic, and comprehensive approach.

  • Have the tools to increase your compensation by thousands of dollars per year
