Flathead Valley Community College will host a workshop on March 20 designed to teach people how to professionally negotiate a fair salary. Free and open to the public, “Start Smart” is relevant to women and men of all ages.
Sponsored by FVCC, American Association of University Women (AAUW) Kalispell Branch, and AAUW Montana, the workshop will take place from 12 to 2 p.m. in the Arts and Technology Building on campus. Workshop materials will be provided to all participants. Pre-registration is required at www.kalispellstartsmart.eventzilla.net.
“We want young people to be able to ‘start smart’ as they enter the workforce,” said Jesse Kuntz, AAUW Montana Program Vice President. “It’s important for new college graduates to learn how to negotiate a fair salary so they can have the opportunity to achieve better economic security for themselves.”
Participants will learn how to identify the appropriate job title to match their current skills and experience as well as how to determine the median salary range paid for this title. In addition, they will learn tips for approaching an employer about re-negotiating a salary or for entering into salary negotiations for a new position.
