What is the one thing you dread when going on an interview? If you’ve prepared for the interview and updated your resume, you are probably pretty confident that the interview is going to go well…. up until the salary negotiation that is. How many people have been taught how to negotiate salary? I know that we here, at Smart People Podcast have not been. You’re in luck because that is exactly what Jim Hopkinson’s new book, Salary Tutor: Learn The Salary Negotiation Secrets No One Ever Taught You (also available in paperback for pre-order) is about. Head on over to Amazon and check it out!

  2. Great info. Do your homework, know your audience, and prepare. Very simple, yet always overlooked. I’ve got an interview tomorrow, wish me luck.
