Barracks To Boardrooms – Byron Y. Chen

“Not negotiating can be more costly than you think…a 25-year-old who negotiated a starting salary…will earn $634,000 more than a non-negotiator [in their lifetime].”
– Who Asks and Who Receives in Salary Negotiation

This book teaches the skills, strategies, and scripts to negotiate without fear, prove your value to your employer, and get paid what you’re worth.

Companies are more ready than ever to attract and hold on to talent, but only if employees ASK FOR IT. Most people still treat negotiation as some complex skill that can’t be taught. Byron Chen has taken his experiences consulting with veterans on career transitions after the military to put together the definitive guide on conducting your own salary negotiation. Barracks To Boardrooms provides the how-to knowledge developed from real world scenarios, hard lessons learned, and contemporary research.
