The process of two or more parties attempting to find a mutually agreeable arrangement. Generally this refers to salary/job offer negotiation or business transactions.

What is Negotiation?

Negotiation is the process of two or more parties attempting to find a mutually agreeable arrangement.

What questions should have this tag?

The negotiation tag should be used for questions about:

  • Tactics to negotiate with a specific goal in mind
  • Strategies for negotiating in a specific scenario, such as pay raise or offer.

Caveat

Remember that questions asking "which option should I take?" or "should I ask for $X or $Y" are off-topic per the rules and will likely be closed.

We also cannot provide any help with company-specific guidelines or policies (such as "Will company X negotiate benefit Y"), you will need to speak to the company's HR about that.
