Salary negotiation tips: Oops!

By Menace65 ·
Okay, so I read about the salary negotiation tips BEFORE accepting an offer that was a lot less than what I was making previously. I'm new to this state, and have been out of work for 3 months, and hey, the benefits are good (one month vacation!).I figure I'll stick it out for about a year, and then go into consulting. What I now need is a game plan to get myself prepared for consulting. My background has been technical/application support, training, systems administration, and vendor/consultant liaison. I know that project management is a pretty hot consulting area, and while I have a little project management experience, I'm no pro. Can anyone suggest classes I could take, applications I should learn, that would really help me to gear up for consulting work? I do not have my college degree as yet, but I will be working towards one online via the state college. As I've pretty much never planned ahead before, I'd like to hear what others have done in preparation for future career moves. Thank you.

PLAN A CAREER WELL IN ADVANCE

by Deepika In reply to Salary negotiation tips: ...

HI
CONSULTING WORK DEPENDS A LOT ON YOUR AREA OF INTEREST AS U'VE TO BE REAL DEVOTED TO IT AND SO IT DEPENDS WHAT R UR INTEREST AREA'S .IF U COULD BE MORE SPECIFIC IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.WHAT I NOW COULD MAKE OUT IS THAT U REALLY HAVE TO BE SERIOUS IN PLANNING YOUR FUTURE WELL IN ADVANCE .JUST THINK WHAT U WANT FROM THE JOB .YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE SOME EXPERIENCE TO UR CREDIT AND INTEREST IN THE FIELD.WHAT U CAN DO IS CHART OUT WHERE U'D LIKE TO BE 2 YEARS FROM NOW AND THEN COME BACKWARDSTO THE PRESENT SCENARIO IN THE DESCENDING FASHION AND U'LL BE SURPRISED TO NOTE THAT U'VE SEARCHED A WAY FOR YUORSELF.U R THE BEST JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. IF U COULD BE MORE SPECIFIC I COULD HELP U FURTHER.
ALL THE BEST
