Am I ready to negotiate?

In less than a year, I will be on the interview trail again searching for a career opportunity. There are so many options out there: academic, community, part time/full time/ locums

The best advice today was to be prepared, to know your worth and be confident about it: Humble Arrogance. I assumed people with great bargaining/negotiating skills had it in them, that it only came as a natural talent.

Great Task Ahead: 1. arm self with negotiation skills 2. do my research 3. set my BATNA and know theirs  4. PRACTICE/PRACTICE 5. Score my DREAM JOB
