As information technology pros we focus our time on knowing the systems we work with, understanding technology, and keeping up with a constantly changing industry. This tech focus often leads to a gap in the soft skills required to negotiate raises and promotions, and map out a career path with bosses.
While salary and title are only part of what makes work worthwhile, fair compensation is essential to overall job satisfaction. This session will focus on three key areas for IT pros: assessing your market value, negotiating for that value, and knowing when a job change is necessary to keep on track with your desired career path. We will discuss methodologies for planning a path, negotiation tactics, and guidelines for when and where a job change may be the only option.
