Feature Session: Salary Negotiations for Legal Ops: Insider Tips on How to Successfully Negotiate

Thursday, May 11, 2017 | 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. | Room: Monet 3

You’ve got the education. You’ve got the experience. You put together a great resume, and you handled yourself well during a series of intense interviews. Because of your hard work, you received an offer to join a company with a great culture. But now you must close the deal. How you approach compensation discussions after you receive an offer is as critical as interviewing well. Many candidates see great jobs slip away because of how they approached compensation discussions. During this session, Sonya Som and Mark Yacano from Major, Lindsey & Africa will discuss what happens when it is time to come to financial terms. Sonya and Mark will draw on their experience with the world’s largest dedicated legal search firm to provide a practical roadmap for how and when to raise compensation issues, how to use compensation discussions as a tool to set you up for success after you take the job and, how to prevent that offer from slipping away.
