Negotiating a Job Offer in the United States

March 11, 2020, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT

Many job seekers are afraid of negotiation. According to a national survey, over 60% of recent graduates don’t negotiate a job offer, while 80% of those who negotiate are at least partially successful. International scholars may be hesitant to negotiate due to their additional challenges, such as visa considerations and cross-cultural nuances. In this interactive session designed specifically for international students and postdoctoral fellows, attendees will learn about the basic principles of negotiating a job offer, and how to navigate this process in the United States. This event is co-sponsored by Rackham Graduate International (GRIN), Rackham Graduate School, and the U-M Medical School’s Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
