TALKING ABOUT MONEY SUCKS…BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO

Think back for a moment. How did you feel the last time a friend or coworker asked how much you were making? Or maybe you’re crafty and you sell cool earrings on Etsy. Do you feel weird telling your friends what they cost because you have this sinking feeling you should be giving your stuff away, not selling it?

To find out the general range for your position, browse sites like Payscale.com, Glassdoor.com, and Salary.com. Print out the salary descriptions, as you may want to bring them into your meeting. Also reach out to your professional or alumni network. Find someone who has previously worked at the company and can say, for instance, “‘This company doesn’t give raises except in July,’" said Sethi.
