Salary negotiation

As an engineer, you should get a job that you are qualified for and get a god salary. You can get tips and advice from The Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers and get access to their salary statistics.

  • Get the employer to give you an offer before you.
  • Investigate the market before you start your negotiations – preferable before you start searching for a job.
  • Negotiate with arguments about your value to the company and your market investigation, not because of your own needs.
  • If you don´t succeed with your first salary, negotiate about future salary and bonuses.  
  • Get the agreement in writing.
