In our recent alumni survey, we asked you what career advice you would like to see from your alumni association. One popular request was for advice on getting on with your work colleagues. It seems that many of us sometimes have difficulty getting on with everyone at work, all of the time. That’s completely normal, but there are tactics you can employ to make your working relationships better.
Negotiating your salary can be a tough balancing act between undervaluing and overvaluing yourself. If you suggest a salary that’s too high, you could price yourself out, as employers may offer the job to someone more affordable. Equally, if you give a figure that’s too low, employers may not think you’re senior enough for the job.
