Negotiating your salary package for a fresh grad is unheard of.

In any case, I had my compensation reviewed while interviewing for my second job.

HR will generally only offer you between 1.1X – 1.5X your last drawn salary. Here’s my approach to get on the upper scale:

1. Find the pay grade range on Glassdoor. Search the firm and its competitors.
2. Always highlight technical certifications relevant to the job i.e. CFA / Lean Six Sigma / PMI-ACP
3. Identify the day-to-day tasking of the job at hand, inform your hiring manager that you’re already performing similar routines in your current job.
4. When contacting your hiring manager via email or phone, always be straightforward and succinct with your points. Do NOT beat around the bush and write out a grandiose poem of how you’re good. Keep the request clear and concise, you’ll be doing HR a huge favour.
