Miriam is the author of Social Networking for Career Success and owner of Keppie Careers. She teaches job seekers and entrepreneurs how to leverage social media to further their goals. CNN calls her a “top 10 job tweeter you should be following.”
Earn What You’re Worth – Five Commandments of Salary Negotiation
Men look at salary negotiation as a given – why not negotiate? But women are much more reluctant – and as a result they leave thousands of dollars on the table over the course of their careers. Join Monique as she teaches you how to ask what you’re worth via her Five Commandments.
Take Part in our Mentor Match Program
