Event 
NSENG “Key Points For Negotiating Your Next Job Offer”
Monday, June 20–6-15pm-8:30pm @ Glenview Public Library
Most successful job seekers spend a large portion of their time focused on networking to their next job opportunity, which is great. But when candidates have successfully sold themselves and the job offer is being constructed, there’s often far less time spent thinking about what aspects of an offer are most important to them. Whether you’re being asked to sign a comprehensive employment agreement or not, there are typically some terms of employment that can be negotiated, many of which can significantly impact you while you’re employed and when you eventually leave your employer.
During this meeting, employment attorney, Lori Goldstein, will talk about some of the potential topics that you may wish to negotiate… and how you may want to address specific subjects in order to satisfy your most important needs.
