This is something you probably know you should do, right? But how? Where do you start? Come learn about techniques and strategies to make this process easier and more successful. We will discuss ideas about what to think about and do when you interview and when you receive an offer, and the basic principles of a successful negotiation: what can be negotiated and how should you respond when offered a position. National Life Group is a Vermont employer very interested in introducing you to these skills that you can use in any type of future employment situation. Open to all students, all majors, whether you are job or internship searching now or later.
