Graduate Job Podcast

In episode 47 of the Graduate Job Podcast, I am joined by salary negotiation coach and bestselling author of the excellent Fearless Salary Negotiation, Josh Doody, as we discuss how to successfully negotiate your salary. In this half hour Josh shares some brilliant insights into how to increase your pay, whether you’re going for your first graduate job, or simply looking for a raise at your existing work place. We delve into why people can be scared to try to negotiate their salary, and why you need to understand your current market rate of pay before you do so. We examine how to answer the dreaded salary questions of ‘how much do you currently earn?’, and ‘how much are you looking for?’, and also explore why should always make a counteroffer to every salary that is proposed. No matter where you are on your job search, this is an episode which will put money in your pocket. As always, all links to everything we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at  Before we start a quick request from me, your feedback helps me to create the episodes you want to hear, so I’ve set up a super simple and very quick survey, as I want the show to best serve your needs.
