How to write a salary negotiation email?
A salary negotiation email is used when you would like to negotiate the initially offered salary of a particular role. People may easily get stressed when talking about salary but knowing how to negotiate is always a plus. Here are some tips when composing a salary negotiation email:
1. Keep it personal Always include the full name of the person you’re addressing the email to. This can be the hiring manager for a new job or your current manager if you’re seeking a negotiation in your current role.
2. Clarify the subject tittle Make your subject line relevant such as “Response to your offer of sales manager position,” but remember not to include salary. You can start to get to that in the body of the email.
3. Be specific about the amount Make sure you have a specific number or range of the expected salary before starting negotiations. Be upfront so that both parties know if it is possible to progress.
4. Highlight your experience and qualification It is an excellent opportunity to show your worth and value. Think about five or six things you may outperform others and put them into detail with specific examples.
5. End with positive language It is always a good idea to end the email by reiterating your genuine interest in the role. In this way, the employer knows it’s worthwhile to try to make your request work. Nothing is impossible!
