Parul Singh, Senior Talent Acquisition Partner at xDesign "Level Up Your Career; Salary Negotiation and Pay Reviews"
Money talk shouldn't be a taboo topic. Many of us hate talking about money especially when it comes to negotiating an offer, or bringing up a pay review with your manager. In this talk Parul will walk you through why you should always negotiate (even for your first role), core principles of negotiation, keeping a brag document to use in pay reviews and promotions and simply how to normalise the conversation around money and stop talking yourself out of it 👀
Parul is an experienced tech recruiter based in Manchester who also codes. She's passionate about using her platforms to raise awareness around issues that drive pay inequality in tech and provides free career coaching to mostly underrepresented folks breaking into the industry.
In the past year she has helped 50+ people negotiate better packages, including many first job offers, £16K pay increase for a software engineer in their existing role and an average 10-15% increase on job offers.
Outside of work Parul enjoys eating in the many delicious food places in Manchester, going to the gym, learning web development and volunteering with CodeYourFuture.
