When should I sign up for Negotiation Consulting?

MCM highly encourages individuals to seek negotiation consulting support prior to the start of a negotiation. How you communicate your needs and goals to hiring managers, prospective supervisors, and recruiters can ultimately shape the outcome of your negotiation, so whether you use our services or another company, we recommend you reach out before you get an offer.

How do strategy planning sessions work?

In each one hour call (via phone, Zoom, or in-person if you are located in the north Atlanta or Atlanta metro area), MCM will work with you one-on-one to talk through your situation, craft a strategy, and suggest language to help you advocate for yourself and attend to your prospective employers' needs. MCM starts by understanding where you are in your job search/hire process. We then work with you to create a unique person negotiation plan tailored to your situation.

How many strategy planning sessions and follow-up calls do I get?

If you purchase The Jump Start, you receive a one-hour strategy planning session and one optional follow-up call. Follow-up calls are not required, but are there to provide additional support to you. If you purchase The Deep Dive you receive a one-hour strategy planning session and three follow-up one-hour calls. Follow-up calls are not required, but are there to provide additional support to you as you navigate offers and make counteroffers. Deep Dive clients also have email access to their consultant. MCM strives to respond to clients within 24 hours of their initial email.

What types of negotiations do you help clients navigate?

MCM supports clients negotiating a salary job, regardless of their field or specialization. We can support clients seeking a new position in a new company, making a vertical or lateral move in their existing company, or launching a new career. While MCM doesn't offer area expertise in every career field, we will work with each client, regardless of their background or career choice, to clarify their goals and empower them in their negotiation.

I'm a student. Is there a reduced rate for me?

Yes! MCM knows that students typically don't have money to throw around, but often need support in negotiating job offers - support many other negotiation consulting companies won't provide. Contact us through the form below and let us know your unique situation.
