Negotiating salary techniques

Salary can often be the dealbreaker when it comes to either accepting or rjecting a job offer. No sudden decision has to be made however; if you feel as if you deserve a more appropriate salary, you can always negotiate this with your hiring manager. 

There are various factors that may come into play on both the candidates' or the employers part, when deciding to offer or request a rise in salary.
