Breaking glass ceilings through career negotiation

  • I received a job offer from my top choice company and I'm super happy! Using your tips and helpful language, I was able to negotiate them up by $30k from their original offer! I will be a product manager for a retail analytics startup so this is a major pivot career wise and all of your tools were relevant to give me the confidence to ask for what I needed to maintain my lifestyle throughout a career change. Thank you!

  • Ashley conducted two webinars for Northeastern University alumni and a workshop for women graduate students and alumni that were excellent. She has a great depth of knowledge about salary negotiation and HR, and is also a skillful presenter and facilitator. Participants valued from the practical information, her responses to a wide range of questions, and participants were empowered to engage in future negotiations. Ashley’s passion for this topic adds to the impact of her presentations.
