Start Smart workshop to teach Penn State Beaver students how to negotiate salary

MONACA, Pa. — Few work-related tasks are more fraught than salary negotiation, particularly when you’re a freshly minted college graduate vying for your first job.

But the American Association of University Women, an organization that promotes equity and education for women and girls, will help Penn State Beaver students prepare for themselves for the inevitable task in a two-hour workshop on April 5.

The Start Smart session will teach students how to negotiate a starting salary, articulate their value, improve lifelong earning potential, and sharpen budgeting skills.

“It is important for individuals, especially recent graduates first entering the workforce, to do their research before negotiating a first job,” said Brenda Schultz, personal and career counselor at the Beaver campus. “Information is power.”

The workshop will begin at 12:15 in the Student Union Building Lodge and run two hours. Students who want to attend are asked to register here.

The event is sponsored by Career Services and the Student Activities Fee.
