  1. Study your prospective employer. There are many different websites that let you take a glimpse into their salaries, work culture, and benefits.
  2. Ask for advice from your seniors or those who are in the same role as the one you're applying for and take culture into consideration.
  3. Identify your negotiables and non-negotiables. It's important to understand that once you accept circumstances that make you miserable, you will only bring negativity to your wellbeing, productivity, and performance.
