Tactics, tools, and templates my clients use to increase their job offers by $50K to $500K+
Negotiations expert. Increased salaries by $1M+ YTD. Prev: LinkedIn, Salary.com.
I’m Gerta, a negotiations expert trained by world-class negotiators from MIT and Harvard Law School. I've spent 10+ years helping professionals increase their offers by 5 to 6 figures. In 2023 alone, I've achieved $1M+ in cumulative compensation increases amongst my clients.
My students and clients come from many roles across top startups and companies like: Meta, LinkedIn, Google, Uber, TikTok, Tesla, Square, and more.
Negotiations start as early as the first call with a recruiter, when they will ask what your preferred salary or range is, or whether the range you saw on the job post works for you. That’s a negotiation move you need to be prepared for (tldr: never share a range).
In my course, you'll take away:
1) my decade of learnings that my 1:1 clients have used to increase their compensation by tens, often hundreds, of thousands of dollars.
2) a qualitative and quantitative approach to negotiations - weave in numbers, behavioral tactics, and your own voice to construct an empowered negotiating position regardless of how much leverage you feel potential employers have over you.
3) strategies that work even in this tough job market (my recent clients in 2023 increased their offers by $215K to $550K).
