How To Negotiate A Higher Salary [Infographic]

It can be very uncomfortable to negotiate a raise or higher salary. A significant portion of both men and women report feeling anxiety at the thought of trying to negotiate a raise—almost 40%. While more than half of men will negotiate a starting salary, only a tiny 7% of women will. What’s important to remember is that it’s up to you to make sure you get the pay you deserve.
