I booked a salary negotiation call specifically because I’m just so bad at it, and like many people, I despise the process. Ketan was great. He helped me craft my argument, gave me perspective, and most importantly, constantly pushed me well out of my comfort zone.
I booked a salary negotiation session because someone else wrote a review that was posted on Facebook, saying that a salary negotiation session will “help you turn mushy intentions and intuition into crystal clear instructions for you to follow”. And true enough, that’s exactly what I got. Within the first two minutes, Ketan shared that statistically, the majority of folks get a significant pay jump by applying to other companies, and not by staying with their current job and trying to negotiate. He also shared that ultimately, if I want to stay with my current job, the most effective way I’m going to possibly get a significant pay rise is by interviewing with other companies, getting some offers and then going back to my current company with another company’s offer in hand, asking them to match that offer. He gave me some great advice - to take the emotion out of the decision, and to not think about how much I like my boss and my current job. Companies don’t have feelings - you aren’t going to get a raise because you’re friends with your boss. And if your boss hasn’t been paying you what you’re worth for x number of years, it’s very unlikely that he’s suddenly going to pay you significantly more tomorrow. Finally, he gave me an action plan with deadlines, and actionable steps, plus some goal-setting resources to check out. $299 is a lot of money for me, and for some people. But please don’t flounder along by yourself - the fact is that we DO NOT have the skills or knowledge to do this by ourselves and get the same results that you would get with a coach. Ketan has what it takes to guide you, as well as a huge network of contacts. Spending this $299 on coaching is more important than anything you could possibly buy for yourself, simply because of the potential for it to lead to an amazing new job. I was NOT ready when I spoke with Ketan. I uploaded a shitty resume that was 4 years old with no metrics and numbers. Ketan still managed to give me pointers on what to work on. If you’re feeling NOT ready, please don’t let that hold you back. Let Ketan provide you with an action plan to follow, and to give you clear, actionable guidance on your next steps. I cannot emphasise how life-changing this conversation was. And by the way, I talked to my boss the day after. Every single thing that Ketan predicted about our conversation was absolutely true. It was naive of me to think that my boss might be willing to give me a significant pay rise, and it took Ketan’s frank advice to instantly get me into the right mindset of letting go of my current job and get excited about the terror and uncertainty of job applications. (This review is left anonymously because I put quite a bit of detail into it but I’m happy to speak with anyone who wants to talk if you get Ketan to connect us. If you're reading this, I beg you to take action and speak with a coach - I am the most not-ready and terrified person you could possibly think of, and if I can do it, SO CAN YOU.)
Ketan was amazing. It was so worth talking to someone who knows what they are doing with negotiating salary. I finally got the offer letter, and happy to feel more confident in what I asked for. Ketan also helped me put into place asking for a clear path to my next position. Stop negotiating against yourself, let Hireclub work with you to get your worth!
If you are thinking at all about using a salary negotiation coach - stop overthinking it right now and just DO it. I was someone who sat on the fence, wondering if these reviews are just shills. Can this be that much better than advice on the internet. The answer: it is that much better, and these reviews are NOT shills. Paying for a salary negotiation session is paying for someone to be your counterpoint - an experienced voice who will help you turn mushy intentions and intuition into crystal clear instructions for you to follow. It will be worth it - returning orders of magnitude more value than it costs. I stand to make $75k more - and without Ketan's advice - I would have asked for $30k less.
Amazing Coach! Gave me the confidence to negotiate the biggest deal of my life. Maximized my earnings, best money I spent.
Helpful, was able to increase my salary by 25k by being more confident and knowing what to say.
Kelly was awesome! Her advice helped me frame my salary negotiation perfectly, and she brought up key questions that I needed to seek clarification on. I learned a lot for future negotiations too!
Phil went above and beyond. He helped me determine whom to ask for more detailed advice, dug online and spoke with his own contacts on my behalf, traded messages with me long after the call was over, and helped me compose a thoughtful, diplomatic counter-offer email. Thanks to Phil's efforts, I was able to secure an additional $10k in annual compensation. I'd give 6 stars out of 5 if I could.
Katia was great in helping me validate my approach as I've recently been offered a position with a new company. We built a plan of action together to help me through the negotiation process that I'm confident will have an impact on me taking on my next job opportunity. Thanks Katia!
Hi Will! I wanted to send you an update here. They started me off as being part time and said they would make an assessment after one month. Well 2 weeks had passed and last week they told me that it is clear I am a great fit and they are going to hire me full time! I was able to get a 11K increase from my previous position! I'm stoked! Thank you for your help :)
Robert got on the phone with me for a last-minute call on a Friday and gave me the confidence I needed to go in for a higher ask on both base and equity. The company ended up more than doubling my equity ask (my preference) and increasing my base. Can't recommend him enough!
Phil was excellent. He gave me expert advice and gave me tips to leverage my experience in a way I hadn't thought of before.
Ketan's salary negotiation coaching helped me secure $22,000 in additional annual total compensation! So glad I used HireClub!
Phil was extremely friendly and did his research in my situation prior to our call. He then took the time to ask me questions so he could develop an idea of who I would be negotiating with and other factors involved. He was very good at assessing my situation (it was a bit of a shock how well he knew after asking a few questions). I’m still in negotiation but I feel very confident that I can maximize my value with Phil’s help. Thanks Phil!
Great! Kelly really helped me hone my negotiation plan when I had two offers on the table.
Great advice, helpful support on something that is challenging even for people who negotiate on behalf of others full-time
Phil helped me get extra 10K! He helped me see different configurations of compensation/benefits and most importantly he gave me the communication tools I desperately needed in order to feel comfortable and prepared to have a very uncomfortable conversation. TBH, it isn’t the compensation increase that I find valuable ... but instead acquiring the confidence to advocate for myself.
Coach Will was absolutely wonderful! His professionalism was exceptional. I felt very comfortable throughout all of our interactions. His experience + his direct approach was incredibly valuable and provided the right level of guidance I needed to confidently navigate a salary negotiation that I was originally apprehensive about. I'm a happy camper all in all and definitely recommend Coach Will!
Ketan was very responsive and helped me craft strong messaging during my negotiation process. I'm thrilled with the outcome and would recommend everyone book a negotiation session with him!
Ketan was phenomenal to work with. He helped me better understand the market value for the role, average salary for the company, and negotiating best practices. As a result, I was able to secure a 15k sign on bonus and the final offer is a 32k pay bump from my current position. Highly recommended.
Thank you Robert for our coaching call and sharing all your tips to negotiate a better salary. I appreciated your help with the wording and role playing exercises. Thanks to you, I not only received a better offer, but also increased my confidence to tackle these discussions. I highly recommend you as a coach! Thank you!
The appointment went very well and am happy with how Phil helped me strategize to figure out the best methods to negotiate the compensation package offered to me. He was very friendly and well versed in the industry which I work in (Solar) which further strengthened the advice he gave me. He even took extra time with me to ensure all questions/comments/concerns were addressed.
Ketan was extremely helpful during my compensation negotiation process. I had a short time to counter and finalize my offer, but he made time to hear my situation, figure out how to counter, proof read my emails and give solid guidance. His quick responses made sure I could keep the process moving fast. He was also upfront with me and helped me realize when I needed to walk away. Before contacting Ketan, I felt lost about how to negotiate, but his advice was spot on and I was able to successfully negotiate the compensation I wanted with his help! I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs help figuring out how to negotiate.
Ketan is amazing and helped me show up when I needed it the most. He was able to cut through the noise and help me focus in on what's important during negotiations. I'm very grateful for him and Hireclub!
Could not be happier with my call with Ketan and the outcome of my negotiation. Ketan not only helped me identify best case scenario and how to approach the negotiation, but he stayed with me every step of the way and gave me the confidence I needed. This was my first time negotiating my salary. One of the best investments I've ever made. Thanks, Ketan!
Ketan provided great initial advice on how to word my asks during negotiation, especially since I opted to do so via email. Our phone session was to the point and he provided additional follow up via messaging. There were questions I was able to ask both of my job offers that I don't think I would have if Ketan hadn't helped me understand their importance during negotiations.
Ketan is amazing! I was really excited to work with him. He helped me change how I view the negotiation and interview process in a way that I know will benefit me throughout my career. He's straightforward and supportive, laying out a path for future success, while making sure I was comfortable with the process. I especially appreciate how he first asked the type of help I needed and how he could best support me through the this stage of my career journey.
Kelly was very responsive, friendly, and asked the right questions to understand my situation and what I needed from our coaching session. She gave me the keys to communicating my expectations in a clear and confident manner, along with practical next steps. I ended up receiving an offer with an additional 15K!
Ketan was a good listener and gathered background information ahead of our call. His years of experience running his own business made him relate to my situation and understand it from a different angle. Ketan was able to break down my specific situation, work on specific language, role play during the call, and speak about how to frame the conversation in terms of intent. His feedback was specific to the situation, informed and positive. He also offered great career perspective. And most importantly effective :) Well worth it.
Ketan was an amazing, invaluable resource that I was lucky enough to be able take advantage of just in the knick of time. Let's just start with the basics - he is extra accommodating, approachable, accessible, and so authentic that you have no concerns he truly has your best interests at heart. Then comes his strength in coaching you for salary negotiations and you're just left in awe! He gives real, direct advice and guides you very closely so you know what steps you have to take to be a strong negotiator. This was seriously one of the best investments I've ever made to work with Ketan to help me with salary negotiations...I am confident it will pay off tenfold and them some!
My salary negotiation session with Ketan & Skye was invaluable. They reminded me of my experience, the value that I bring to a company, and encouraged me to settle for no less. The time they took to evaluate my specific situation and give unique feedback really was truly incredible. I'm so thankful I took the leap and booked a session—I'll definitely be reaching out for more advice in the future!
Ketan was amazing on our salary negotiation call! He immediately pinpointed issues about my fear of being unemployed and coached me on confidence and wording; so that I’m prepared to get the salary I deserve and not to under-value myself. I’ve been a member of HireClub since their early days and it is a true community that feels like family. Ketan goes over and above , working tirelessly maintain the integrity of HireClub.
Robert was incredibly kind and insightful during our call. He not only addressed my professional anxieties around my career development but also my own personal fears. Robert took the time to review the documentation and research I had already written even after our call which helped me to be confident in the future conversation. I would be happy to work with Robert again in the future or recommend him.
Roberts was very thoughtful in helping me craft my salary negotiation messaging. He was also easily available via text to help walk me through specific moments (should I email vs call, does this sound normal, etc.) which was really helpful to have in my pocket. If you have information to share before your call (your resume, profile, JD) he will take the time to review all and make sure you prepare an accurate but strong message for the negotiation.
Joyce has been incredibly helpful as I navigate the transition from contractor to permanent position. Working with her on how to communicate with my supervisor regarding my role has been invaluable.
Domenic was incredible to work with. From when I booked my appointment, I sent over the initial offer and he asked a few brief data gathering questions before our call to give him context. Then we had a very dense 30 minute call going over the details of everything, what I can expect, where to push, where not to, and how offers like these are made. After the interview, I updated him with the ongoing status and he gave me some great tips. His approach was very personable and inspiring, it was absolutely worth the money, not just from a results perspective but from a confidence perspective. I have already recommended him to several friends!
Ketan asks great questions and gives solid action points. 30 minutes is short but definitely got me started on the right foot towards getting a 15% salary bump!
Great! She gave me some very helpful tips on wording and flow and I think it helped.
I enjoyed my session with Ketan! He helped me break down different scenarios taking my risk tolerance in the negotiation into account. I definitely recommend to anyone evaluating an offer.
This review is looooooong overdue! I had a Salary Negotiation coaching session with Ketan and it was very helpful! He didn't just give me tips/tools for negotiating better, rather he helped me focus on what was truly important beyond compensation in the role/work/lifestyle I wanted. I highly recommend this coaching session with Ketan. Thanks Ketan!!!
Dave is a great mentor and coach, especially when it comes to salary negotiations. He had great advice and ran through multiple scenarios with me that helped maximize my final offer! I will definitely be reaching back out to Dave for any negotiating tips!
Excellent tips and helped me get a better deal. Definitely worth it.
Great call with Ketan! He patiently understood my problem, and gave me actionable and practical solutions! Would definitely recommend a session with him.
Practical tips - customized for you need. Highly recommend Mike.
Thank you so much for your time, Svetlana. I'm feeling much more confident about my upcoming salary negotiation. I look forward to telling you how I get on :)
