May 24th - Free AGU Webinar: Introduction to Negotiation Strategy and Tactics

I just wanted to bring to your attention this upcoming free webinar from the American Geophysical Union (AGU).

Introduction to Negotiation Strategy and Tactics
Date: Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Time: 1500h–1600h EDT (1900h–2000h UTC)

Registration link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/561533048

Did you know that the salary of your very first job after graduation determines your salaries for the rest of your life? Learn the basics of how to create a win-win situation and negotiate right from start to finish in the job decision process. Clarifying your needs and wants, and those of the other party are key. The negotiation skills you learn are valuable in that they can be applied to any situation in your professional (and even personal) life.
