“I want to thank you for the training workshop on pay package negotiations. It taught me a great deal, especially about what types of things are negotiable and how to ask for what I want. I was not initially comfortable with these aspects at all, but now I feel better armed to deal with them.”
“A very interesting workshop. The exercise focusing on questions that the interviewer might ask provides ‘real-world’ situational training for better preparation.”
“I received a great deal of information about the interview process, how to behave, attitudes to avoid… the right times to broach the salary issue and the right ways to negotiate.”
“The presentation was very interesting and allowed me to take stock of the situation. The practical exercise was very useful.”
“The workshop was exactly what I was expecting and I was delighted with it!”
