Professionals are growing in confidence and negotiation skills as a Robert Half survey find 55% of candidates negotiating for a higher salary with their last job offer. This number is 16-point rise from its 2018 numbers. The survey that included 2,800 workers and as many senior managers found that respondents from San Diego, San Francisco, and Miami are the most likely to negotiate for a higher salary, while those from Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Minneapolis are the least likely to go for negotiations. Men (68%) will negotiate more compared to women (45%), and the young professionals from 18-35 years are keener on negotiation than their older counterparts. Most of the senior managers expected that the candidate will negotiate, with 80% managers in Boston and 78% managers in Denver and Washington DC believing the same.
