UPDATE: Watch the full recorded webinar here.

When was the last time you asked for a raise? According to a recent PayScale salary survey published in January, 57 percent of employees have never asked for a raise. And nearly half (49 percent) of employees never negotiate their starting salary, reports a Career Builder/Harris Interactive survey.

At today’s “Develop Your Negotiating Power” Career Lunch and Learn webinar, Jonathan Levene ’97, MEng ’98 shares strategies for communicating value to an employer and asking for fair compensation.

The webinar will be held from 12-1 p.m. EDT today, June 10, 2015. Learn more and register.
