Negotiating in a job interview is arguably one of the most nerve-wracking parts of the hiring process. But it doesn’t have to be that way! For a lesson how not to get stumped when talking to a potential employer, Liz speaks executive recruiter Sarah Van Dyck who has some expert advice on how to ask for what you really want out of a job, and we’re not just talking about salary.
Then, we’ll hear from listener Jennifer who had to stop working for 18 months to take care of her ailing husband. Now Jennifer is ready to find a new job, and Liz and Rico go over some ways to make it happen.
And in this week’s Work Pop, we’re taking a listen to Adam Sandler’s classic, “The Wedding Singer” for some real talk on interviewing.
Last but not least, in honor of Equal Pay Day on April 2, we’re speaking to founder and CEO of the Career Contessa website, Lauren McGoodwin. She’s going to give us a lesson once and for all on how to ask for a raise.
