Employees in the tech industry are valuable assets to their employers, providing specialized expertise and indispensable skills. Unfortunately, not all HR staff and recruiters have that value in mind, and you—the extraordinarily talented tech professional—might find yourself accepting wages that are not commensurate with the value you provide. Really, you end up getting exploited.
Enter the critical skillset you’ve never been taught: negotiating. Understanding the tactics and mindset behind salary negotiation enables you to take power back, putting you in the driver’s seat of your career. Author and technologist Scott Turman empowers this trajectory transformation and shares from his twenty-plus years of industry experience to demonstrate that a comfortable living in technology is not only possible, it’s attainable. By exposing recruiter secrets and salary and benefits scandals while revealing best practices for interviews and negotiations, this book teaches you how to secure the best rate possible.
