I struggle sometime with british humor, but maybe we all can get a chuckle out of this one!

Salary and Benefits Negotiation PDW

Posted on

Attention Students! UB ALA strongly encourages you to attend the Salary and Benefits Negotiation Workshop presented by UB. This will be happening Thursday November 13th from 4-5pm. It will be held in the Student Union Theater which appropriately is located in the Student Union. UB has brought in a special guest speaker for the event. 

We feel strongly that this sort of workshop will be valuable, as we have heard from alumni that employers are talking about salaries as soon as your first interview. You don’t want to be caught unawares. Also, a benefit package is where you can obtain additional funds for relocation, health and vacation pay, professional development money and much more – if you know how to work it!

Please consider attending this workshop on Thursday!
