Jim’s course is great. This is just what I needed to start the New Year off right. The digital downloads are excellent and make it easy to apply the action steps he outlines in the course. I also found the list of resources he provides to determine how much you’re worth extremely valuable. It’s so hard to put a number on all you’re experience, but the resources he gives you make it easy. I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to get a raise or is looking for a new job.
I was expecting to be given many examples of how to negotiate with your employer. You are only given 2 of 1 minute each. I was expecting videos where 2 actors are negotiating but instead I got Jim Hopkinson just telling you how you are supposed act in those difficult moments of tension. NOT HAPPY!! GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!!!!
This course was delivered by an excellent speaker /teacher that gave very practical and actionable strategies for negotiating your salary.
The course was presented in a really accessible manner and made this usually awkward or difficult process much easier to organize in my mind. A great strategy and approach is laid out.
I expected a little more detail. Maybe some tricks on how to lead a conversation to the right point, where you start talking casually about your achievements. Tips on how to catch an opportunity and start promoting yourself, sniffing the right moment in a longer discussion with your boss. Maybe some words of advice on how to do a better PR of yourself as a good employee or as a great manager. This course was to short for me, most of the advice is available on-line and apart from putting it all in one place, I don't think it gave me much. The expert himself is a good speaker and apart from all the things I've said above, I would consider taking different classes/ courses made by him.
