Negotiating on salary figure after a job offer might seem awkward, but if you feel that there is room for negotiation, you should negotiate!
There are specific techniques that you will need to consider. The best way to do this is to assess your situation.
Ask yourself if you are in a position to negotiate. How will you know?
If you have appeared in a series of interviews, it is possible that the employer liked your candidacy.
When you sit down to write a salary negotiation letter, think of what you have to offer.
The mere mention of your “organizational skills” or “multitasking abilities” may not cut it. You will need to mention your job-relevant attributes.

Dear Ms. Gale:
Thank you for your offer to join Faces America in the capacity of a Project Manager. I am very excited about this offer and look forward to working on diverse and challenging projects.
I have read and understood the details of the accompanying contract with much precision. The terms that you have described in the offer letter are acceptable to me with just one issue, i.e. remuneration. I believe that the salary that you offer is good, but it is less than sufficient as compared to the level of responsibility. In addition, this pay is not much higher than what I am receiving at United Helping Hands.
I would like to take a moment here and reiterate some of the major accomplishments that Face America can derive benefit from:
• 100% funds obtaining rate in the past 12 years.
• Gained 52 major projects for United Helping Hands within 5 years.
• Successful service awareness rate of 72% in the previous 3 years.
Owing to these accomplishments, I feel that I deserve more than your offer. I believe we can come to a mutually agreeable arrangement if we discuss this in person. I would appreciate it if you would let me know when we can meet.
