Re: Job Negotiation Tips...Interview Questions


Date: Sun Jul 07 2002 - 04:36:12 PDT

I agree with Alix...public school and many private schools teaching salaries
have little room for negotiations other than your years of experience. Even
within the diocese in which I teach...we have a negotiated pay scale. I can
only gain extra salary perks by assuming more responsibility. Unless an area
is desparate for teachers or an elite private/higher education institution
would relocation benefits even be considered. Number of classes, types of
classes, number of students per class and schedule might be a point of
negotiation but little else. Recently my husband an I considered a position
opening up at a private military academy in Ga for a considerable pay
raise...probably would double my salary here in OH. However relocation would
have been at our expense. One of the draw backs to the job in Ga would be
weekend work required of the faculty. (My husband's company would not
consider him locating out of Atlanta due to the increase in the expenses for
his travel. All travel for him would then be by plane whereas now he can
drive to some of places of business. Although we were certain of the answer,
he asked and they did consider the possiblity.)
