3 Cardinal Rules Of Negotiating A Salary Contract #AskCheeky

– Hello and welcome to another Ask Cheeky. I’m Isaiah Hankel with Cheeky Scientist and today I wanna talk to you
about the three cardinal rules of negotiating a job offer, salary okay so if you haven’t been interviewing yet, if you haven’t even been on a phone screen this is still relevant to you because nowadays employers
start the negotiation process at the first touchpoint okay? At the first touch of contact. So before you even give them your resume you’re likely gonna get a referral from an employee working at that company that’s the number one way
to get a Ph.D level job and then you’re gonna go on a phone screen and then after the phone screen they’ll ask you to upload your resume through their official system that’s how most Ph.D
level jobs are filled now. The problem is when it comes
to negotiating your salary is that they start trying
to drive down the salary they’re gonna pay you very very early that’s why you have to
follow these three rules no matter what and you
have to have them in mind before you even again have that initial
touchpoint with the company. The first one, very important set your walkaway number. One of my favorite lines of all time is is if you’re not willing to
walk away from a negotiation you’re not negotiating,
you’re just begging, okay? You have to have a walkaway number your minimum number that
you’re willing to accept and you need to set that number before you get a referral
from the company, before you go even on
an information interview with an employee working at that company because things will happen fast after that and what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna start doing something
called intensity matching so you’re going to start investing time into that job lead, into that company, you’re gonna start
investing emotional energy and you’re gonna be
willing to sacrifice salary for the energy and for
the time you’ve invested. So set that walkaway number
first while you’re logical before things get emotional okay, before time is a factor. Number two, make sure that you have
a job offer in your hands an actual contract before this happens the
company has all the power, once they give you a written job contract that is valid, they have
to agree to that contract that’s why there’s a date
on it it’s very official. This is true for most states
and most countries okay they have to honor that
agreement, that contract. So get the contract in hand don’t make the mistake of
verbally agreeing to anything, you wanna make sure they
give you the first number okay, that’s a topic for a separate video but you also wanna make sure that they give you a written contract with whatever that initial number is. Okay, very very important. They will try to catch you off guard whether on the phone screen, during the site visit they’ll say would you take the job if I offered you $80,000 a year right now? If you say yes it’s very hard
to come back from that okay? So make sure that you
get a contract in hand before you start negotiating, before you give your counteroffer. Last thing is make sure that you
negotiate your salary first. Okay, there’s a classic
negotiation technique that most employers will use they’ll try to muddy the waters it means they’ll try to mix things us and make the negotiation unclear for you. They’ll say well we can’t
give you a higher salary but we can give you a signing bonus or we can give you an
extra week of vacation, whatever it is it’s not gonna matter nearly as much as your starting salary ’cause your salary sets your entire career and salary trajectory especially if it’s your
first job in industry, okay? There are a lot of studies
and references that show that just a $5,000 difference
in a starting salary can make a difference in
the lifetime of your career of up to a million dollars. So it’s very very important
for you to negotiate and negotiate that salary, it’s critical. A $20,000 sign-in bonus sounds nice but it’s a drop in the bucket and by the way you get
taxed a lot more on bonuses, it’s a drop in the bucket
compared to your overall salary so make sure you negotiate that first. That takes us to the
end of this Ask Cheeky. If you have any questions on these topics please ask them in a comment below. As always remember you’re value as a Ph.D and start thinking and acting like a successful industry professional.

5 Salary Negotiation Mistakes PhDs Make

– Halo PHDs and welcome to another, Whiteboard Wednesday Training video. I’m Isaiah Hankel with Cheeky Scientists. And today we’re talking
about five academic-minded, salary negotiation fails. That means you want to avoid them, okay? What are these negotiation fails? They have to do with being a PHD and spending most of your
life in career and academia. Since that is the case
for many of you listening and it was certainly the case for me. You start to be anchored very low in terms of what you’re worth, especially when it comes to money. And you need to shake off that mindset and have a successful industry mindset, if you wanna negotiate
a salary at the level, the other PHDs are
getting in the industry. In fact I’ve seen a lot
of PHDs myself included, accept positions that are paying below what somebody with a bachelors would make. Paying below what somebody
with a masters will make because simply because
they didn’t negotiate. A Harvard Business Review study showed that in some cases
depending on the segment of the population you’re looking at. less than 90%, actually I’m sorry. Less than 10% right? Over 90% will not negotiate. Women for example according to that Harvard Business Review, only 7% of women negotiate their salaries. For men it’s 30 to 40 to 50% depending on which study you look at. For different segments it can a lot lower. You need to negotiate. The biggest fear for PHDs, the biggest reason they don’t negotiate is because they forget what they’re worth. They’re paid very low
graduate student stipend. They’re paid a very low amount compared to what they’re worth in the
industry for their post-doc so we need to help you
shake off that mindset. There’s five you want to
avoid in order to do this. Number you have to avoid verbal yeses. Another reason PhDs accept salaries that are so low is because, it’s the most they’ve ever been offered. Right, if you’re a graduate student and you’re making $19000 a year and somebody offers you 45. It looks like a lot of money and you’re so excited
and if somebody says, an employer and this is a
negotiation tactic I’ll use. They say what if I offered
you $45000 right now, would you take it? What would you say? You probably wouldn’t know what to say ’cause you haven’t been
trained in negotiation. And to do all that work
to get a site visit, for an interview it’s a long process. Some of you you’ve never
even have site visits and then to blow the negotiation, it’s heartbreaking, it’s what it is. You have to learn this stuff early, okay? Do not commit verbally to
anything from any employer, make them give you a contract, okay? Until they give you a written
contract with an offer, they have all the power. They’ve all the leverage. You can’t negotiate from a
place of weakness like that. You can’t, you have to wait
till they give you a contract and there is a lot of ways to
say this very gently, right? It’s called panting. You pant it back to them. You talk about how excited
you’re to work for them, talk about your lack of
experience in the industry. This can be used to your advantage. In negotiation playing
dumb is smart, okay? I have no idea what is normally
offered at this company or in this industry or just say, I’ve been a graduate student, I’ve been in academia my whole life, you would know better here
what to offer than I would. Just keep gently bringing it back to them and getting them to give you
an actual offer on paper. Do not make any verbal commitments, don’t do that, big mistake. Number two, conflict fear. Now, in some cases PHDs have
zero fear of conflict, right? If they see something wrong in terms of the data they speak out. If they see something
wrong happening logically, they speak right away. But when it comes to
negotiation in business, it’s a field they’re
very uncomfortable with. Right outside their comfort zone, they’re afraid of conflict. They get an offer and
they’re so terrified, the offer is gonna be taken back from them that they don’t negotiate. This is why it’s very important to go after more than
one job lead at a time. If you have multiple
offers at the same time, you’re in a much stronger position because options are levers. They’re leverage in a negotiation. In fact if you get an
offer from one company, you should go back every other
company you’ve interviewed with or have even been talking to, tell them you have an offer but that you wanna hear
an offer from them first, before making a decision. Don’t be afraid of conflict. In fact a study just came out showing that 90% of employers, more than 90%, have never retracted an offer because the candidate negotiated. Never, in fact you’re more
likely to do yourself damage by not negotiating ’cause
the employers is gonna look at you and think they made a mistake. They’re gonna think
this person doesn’t know what they’re doing they
accepted the offer right away. They can’t even talk to me as a colleague on a high level, business topic like negotiation. They don’t know how to make a deal, they’re gonna have major concerns, if you don’t negotiate, okay? That’s where the real problem lies, not from negotiating so don’t fear it. Three, uber aggression, okay? At the same PHDs, right? Can be overly aggressive especially, when they’ll learn the
negotiation tactics. They can get very competitive, it’s okay to competitive as a PHD. That’s good it can drive you forward, it’s what probably keeps you
in the lab 18 hours a day. However, you don’t
wanna be too aggressive. You wanna make sure it’s win win, you don’t wanna go for blood, you wanna do everything you can to make sure your salary
is high as possible. You’re getting benefits, you’re getting the bonuses, et Cetera which we’ll talk about in a second but you don’t wanna make
them feel like you have a, you’ve really taken advantage of them. You don’t wanna make them feel, like you’re going after every small, little thing all the way to the end. In other words, you
wanna make it win, win. How do you do this? It’s called selling to the close. What this means is that
you always come back to talking about your skills and how excited you are
to work for the company, throughout the entire
negotiation process, okay? Always be positive. Always keep it light. If they start getting annoyed
back off a little bit, okay? Keep it light. Come back to the skills. Everything you’re going
to bring to the company, the value you’re adding. Don’t just obsess in the value you want ’cause you’ll come off as greedy. Number four, muddy the waters, okay? Muddying the waters is something that employers will use against you. You’ll start to negotiate salary and they’ll say, well, we
can’t increase the salary but we can give you a
big signing bonus, right? Big being like 10000, even 20000 and you might think, wow,
$20000 cash, that’s great. However, bonuses are taxed at a higher level than your salary is. Not only that, but it’s a
drop in the bucket compared to your salary over time, right? If you negotiate $20000
higher in salary, right? That’s going to put you at a much better salary trajectory, for your overall career and studies have shown you’re gonna make at least a million dollars more with just a 5000 increase in salary, over the lifetime of your career. By negotiating $5000 more, you can make over a million
lifetime in your career. Really adds up. Employers know this,
which is why I’ll try to, it’s called muddying the waters, right? Mixing and matching different fields of the negotiation. You wanna set aside everything but salary. Do that first and then
move on to everything else. Last but not least, stopping early. A negotiation can be a very long process and that works in your favor because the more time and emotional energy that an employer has invested in you, the less likely they are to walk away from the negotiation, right? So you negotiate the big
things first like your salary but then you gotta go
through all of the details of negotiating a signing bonus, okay? Negotiating stock options or equity. All of this stuff is
always on the table, okay? Then you moved from there
to negotiating a car, corporate housing,
relocation reimbursements, all the way down to the small things, like you need two weeks off for
your cousin’s wedding, okay? Go through the entire process. Negotiate for everything
but again always sell to the close bring it back
to the value you’re gonna to add to the company, the skills. Showcase your enthusiasm. This will help you stop
thinking like an academic. Don’t make these mistakes. Review them again. Watch the video again if you need to and if you have questions, please ask them in a
comment below this post. Until next time, remember
your value as a PHD and start thinking and acting, like a successful industry professional.

Curtin’s School of Marketing | A student’s perspective

So my research was in collaboration with
an industry partner, which really gave the overall study a real-world impact.
More than that, we went on to explore different consumer responses to sensory
cues in a simulated luxury retail space. I think the current marketing degree is
as much theoretical as it is creative so you get a really good balance of both,
and you really get to apply that knowledge to again real-life clients in
real problems. I would say to really commit from early on because you can get a lot out of that from an early stage in the degree and to really work closely
with your tutors and unit coordinators. In this fast-moving world, technology is
increasingly crucial to the science of marketing. To be one of the best, it can
only be achieved by being immersed in revolutionary technology, such as The
Hive and Radian6. We, university students, have that golden opportunity with
world-class teaching and technology being able to collaborate with
industries that provide priceless opportunities in building and refining
our skill set. The School of Marketing at Curtin University pride themselves in
ensuring that what we students learn can be applied across different industries,
both locally and abroad, making for what is literally, a world of opportunity.

Rice Business Professional MBA: A Career Accelerator, A Career Changer

I was at a point in my career where I
was happy with my job, I was an individual contributor, and I wanted to
expand my responsibilities at work. And really, since going to Rice, I gained
confidence in my abilities, and I was able to advocate for that next position
at work. And without Rice, I would still be working my previous role. So much has
happened for me already. I have just started a full-time job
as a result of the internship that Rice provided me, and I can’t even imagine
what the second year will hold for me. In just the first year, the Rice MBA has allowed me
to take on a position of higher responsibility at work, it has given me
confidence in front of my peers and colleagues, and it has changed the course of
my career trajectory. Last summer I did an internship within consulting, which
was an industry that I was not aware of or thought that I had any chance of
getting into before Rice and before the MBA program. And, I decided to take a leap
of faith and I am glad to say that it was right choice. Rice has offered me camaraderie, it’s offered me friendship, it’s offered me growth opportunities, and so if
you want a professional MBA, you’re working full-time and you’re
going to go to class at night or on the weekend, Rice is the place to be. You’ll find a family here.

Automation and AI are destroying jobs, not work

Now is not a good time to be set in your ways. The future’s here. Jump on board. The train is leaving the station. Eric Krume is a logger who’s betting everything he has on the future. If this project is just a huge failure, it just means that I’m back to hand-to-mouth. It’s everything that I’ve got. Besides cutting trees, Eric Krume is also a self-taught engineer. And he’s spending all his money to build and send machines where they’ve never tread before. So, in the past, that machine, a machine like that, has never come up a hill like that. Like many American industries, logging has been swept by a wave of automation. But steep mountainsides have remained a last refuge for people on the ground, working with their hands. Until now. So, if you had two hand cutters cutting, and a seven-man rigging crew, that’s nine people, with at least six or seven of them on the ground. This is replacing those people directly. Understanding how automation is playing out in this industry can teach us a lot about the future of work far from the woods. While some of the benefits may be surprising, the pain will hit close to home. Eric’s son Tristan does a job that Eric plans to automate. After the trees come down, Tristan is one of workers attaching cables, by hand, to haul logs off the mountainside. And he said his colleagues see what’s coming. Almost half, probably, just think their job’s getting stolen. In that way, what’s happening on these Oregon slopes could soon happen all over. The machines may soon replace many of us. The traditional logging, that we’re all used to, is over. Nobody can compete with the latest technology. Not if you’re doing it the old way. People studying how automation transforms employment generally agree that a vast swath of jobs will soon dramatically change or disappear. Probably in the last five years or so, we’ve seen these technologies make more progress than they’ve made in the last 50 years. Especially the artificial intelligence part. The worst predictions say 40 percent of today’s jobs could be lost to automation in only a few decades. But if even half of that manifests, we’re talking about a question of fundamentally restructuring what American life looks like. It isn’t the first time we’ve seen lives fundamentally restructured by machines. In 19th-century England, an economic recession, and changing fashions, and a wave of automation threw thousands of textile makers out of well-paid jobs. The workers who reacted by violently smashing machinery came to be known as Luddites. The people that became the Luddites— the croppers, the weavers— they were the middle class of that day. And that’s one of the reasons why they reacted so strongly when automation and machinery came along to take those jobs away. Because they were falling from a pretty high height. We’re talking about change that, in a matter of a few years, wiped out tons and tons of jobs. And so that makes you think about today. After the British government stamped out the Luddite movement, the textile industry continued to automate unabated. And some students of history say the Luddites’ core grievance wasn’t really about machines at all. They were comfortable with machinery. They’d been using tools for years. If technology was going to be used in a way that benefited everyone, they were happy with it. They saw this, really, not as a technological fight, but an economic fight. When the Luddites started breaking machines, it was because they had lost their attempt to mitigate the way that economic change would happen. Today, technologists say heavy economic change is coming to jobs that involve mind as much as muscle. The same way that Google Maps slashed the mental calculations needed to navigate around town, new systems could soon automate the judgment calls once needed to do stuff like prepare tax returns, or parse legal precedent, or make a medical diagnosis. I think that’s what makes this time different. Many of us imagine that a lot of things that require emotional intelligence are inherently human. Judgment, intuition; those are the things that are inherently human, where, historically, we’ve never really needed power tools for those things. And it’s likely that many people who never considered their work a candidate for automation will see artificial intelligence change their jobs in big ways. We actually found, in our research, that something like 60% of occupations have, on average, about 30% of their activities that can be automated. What that means is that you’re going to have, probably, more people working with machines, alongside machines. So it kind of becomes this collaboration, this fluid, kind of like, exchange of talents between the machines and the people. From the discovery of fire, all the way to having a pen with which we write, we always have invented tools. AI is another tool. AI did not come from the sky. And here’s where it’s probably worth underscoring one of the biggest lessons the loggers may hold for the rest of us. Sure, automation is going to lead to less work for guys like this. But it will also lead to less of something else. If you have a man on a chainsaw falling trees, they’re eventually going to get hurt. You’re the softest thing out here. If there’s an accident, you’re either going to be disabled, or you’re going to be dead. Logging has the highest death rate of any American occupation. For its size, logging kills people at a higher rate than the military. So, sadly, yesterday, a hand cutter got killed. It was pretty local. That really brings it home with what we’re doing. That could be one of my guys. I’ve come to the belief that the only way I can ensure the safety of my people is not have them there. The best way not to kill a hand cutter is to not have one. We can’t stop the automation coming to the woods, and we probably shouldn’t want to. The stakes may not be as high for the algorithms automating work elsewhere, but there are likely to be ways that the technology coming to your workplace will, one day, seem similarly indispensable. To the extent that automation is destroying either routine, uninteresting, dangerous, hazardous work, that may be a good thing. And also, hopefully, creating other kinds of work. And the economy has done that for decades. One of the things that gets lost in the conversation about automation is that there are actually enormous benefits to us as a society. The challenge remains dealing with the whirlwind pace at which our era’s technologies are entering and remaking our jobs. I’ve been cutting timber for 22, 23 years. I have four kids. They need to learn a different trade. So what will the future of work look like? From here, it looks like a future where careers could become a changing story, of not one job, but many. The majority of people will end up having an episodic career. It’s great to ask kids, for example, what do you want to be when you grow up? But one thing that might be added to that question is, what five things do you want to be when you grow up? You’re probably not going to do the same job you did when you were 20. You’re probably not going to do the same job for 40 years. The world is moving too fast right now. The worst thing you can do right now is nothing. Don’t be the guy who refuses to look at the future.

Trees Work – Wood Block and Letterpress Posters

(music)>>In the whole campaign it seems
like there’s an opportunity when we’re talking about
the benefits of our forest to talk about also the wood products
our forests provide us here in Missouri. Maybe we don’t see those. Maybe we don’t know
that they’re out there. But here’s an example
of right in the heart of St. Louis is a nice artistic business
making these handcrafted posters and they’re using Missouri wood for them. There are 42,000 jobs that relate to
the forest products industry in Missouri. So here’s just one more example of
maybe things you wouldn’t think about but people whose jobs center
around Missouri’s wood industry. (music)>>Trees work for us in amazing ways from reducing our stress levels
when we’re around trees to helping clean our water to providing jobs in Missouri
with the forest products industry. (music)

Employment opportunities for Indigenous Students | Curtin University

>>The Aboriginal Student Placement
Program focuses on hiring students internally on campus.>>At the moment I’m working as a
Scholarship Assistant. I’m just working in the holidays,
that allows me to focus on my studies throughout the semester.>>When I first began working here I was
working as a receptionist at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies.
And right now I’m working at People and Culture just as an
admin assistant as well.>>I’m doing a little bit of
administration work, we’re doing a mail out for
prospective students next year. Some data entry, some filing, archiving.>>You don’t really get that sort of
experience like just as a student but working here as well
you get to see like behind the scenes of what’s
going on, around here. I really like that side.>>Being able to put that theory that
I learn in the classroom into practice, in like a
real-world experience.>>It’s just really convenient
working on campus and then being able to
go to class as well.>>You’re earning money, so supporting
myself while I’m studying.>>So we also run resume workshops and leadership workshops
throughout the semester. As well as different networking
events that students can attend to help with their personal
and professional development.>>Yes I did one of the resume workshops,
which was really, really valuable. I’ve only ever had one job
my whole, whole life so never really had a resume before. The resume workshop was really
good in terms of being able to build that resume from scratch
and see what employers want, and what they’re after, and how
to highlight my attributes.>>A lot of people here have
helped me develop those interpersonal skills that you don’t
really get working elsewhere. And it’s probably helped the way
I’ve thought about the workplace and especially like what I’m studying,
and what I want to do, once I do graduate.>>I can really recommend the
Aboriginal Student Placement Program because it’s flexible, it allows me
to work around my study and also allows me to earn some
extra income during that time. And I think it would be really valuable
to have on my resume, sort of help with future job prospects.>>I love working here and since
I have started working here it’s definitely given me
a lot more confidence in not only the workplace but just like
who I am as a person.>>Students can get involved by
either going through UniHub or they can email
[email protected] and then I’ll send them all the
information of how to get involved.
