Assignment Topic – Negotiating a Job Offer
In Negotiation Skills, you have learned various skills and strategies necessary to both expand and maximize your share of the pie, with the objective to ensure a ‘win-win’ deal for the parties involved.
Salary negotiations are very important, as you can appreciate the implications in terms of welfare, for you and your family for years to come. Consider this example – with an average annual pay increase of 5%, an employee with a starting salary of $55,000 instead of $50,000 would earn an additional $600,000+ over the course of 40-year career.
Thus, your ability to negotiate well with future employers can have a profound impact in your standard of living in years to come.
You have just graduated with your business degree and have just been shortlisted for an interview with a well-known accounting firm for the position of “Graduate Accountant”. You are required to find a suitable company (private or publicly listed) of your choice for this assignment.

1. Conduct comprehensive research and consider the questions and issues from Appendix 4 of main textbook under: (1) “Preparation”, (2) “In vivo: during the negotiation, itself”, and (3) “Post Offer: You have the offer, now what?” and prepare a report within 2000 to 2500 words.
2. Prepare a negotiation worksheet (see next page) for the interview based on your findings and include the worksheet at the front of the report.
