Show your value in the negotiation by discussing what you contribute and the problems you solve. By Robin Madell June 29, 2015, at 11:02 a.m. + More If you find yourself feeling queasy at the thought of negotiating your salary, you aren’t alone. Research from Salary.com reveals that around one-fifth of candidates don’t counter the first number on the table after they receive a job offer. In fact, a poll by the Society of Human Resource Management found that nearly 80 percent of those surveyed expressed that they didn’t like to discuss money or negotiate employment terms. Female candidates are even more affected by this apprehension. According to Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever, authors of “Women Don’t Ask: Negotiation and the Gender Divide,” 2.5 times more women than men feel “a great deal of apprehension” about negotiating. Babcock and Laschever also found that while 46 percent of men report “always” […]

Should You Buy A Second-Hand iPhone? | OLX BLOG

Admin February 18, 2016 No Comments

Many people are sceptical about buying second-hand gadgets, nowadays, and this is partially due to the fact that they are not aware of the advantages of going for second-hand phones. However, buying a second-hand iPhone would be far more advantageous. For starters, a new iPhone is far more expensive than a used one. You could save a ton of cash and spend it elsewhere, while enjoying the features of the more recent models at a better price. On the other hand, if you were to buy the same phone from an Apple store, you’d have to pay full-price! You won’t have to worry much about specifications because older Apple phones do support awesome specs and you’d get the phone’s premium build quality, too. Another point to note is that newer models support newer features and it might take time for one to get used to these features. Some users might […]

New vs. Used Car – 6 Benefits of Buying a Used Car for Cheap

Admin February 17, 2016 No Comments

Are you debating whether to buy a new car or a used car? Find out why it’s usually better to go with a slightly used car to save big bucks long term. Other than your home, your car might be the most expensive purchase that you ever make. I love nice cars, but I also try to manage my finances responsibly. As a result, I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that a new car is an unnecessary expense. Sure, you can find overpriced used cars and bargain buys on brand-new vehicles, but it’s not just the sticker price that makes a new car a waste. The associated fees, subsequent costs, and losses in value (i.e. depreciation) add up to thousands of dollars over the first few years of new car ownership. This is especially bad news if you end up upside down on your car loan. On the other […]
