Does the topic of salary negotiation make you itch? You’re not alone. Salary means survival, self-worth and so much more. How can you keep your cool on this charged issue?

Join our web content editor, Bridget Quigg, who has spent years covering salary and career topics for PayScale. She manages our blog for employers Compensation Today, as well as our blog for job seekers and employees, The Salary Reporter. Bridget’s co-host is Elise Oras (@eliseoras), PayScale’ social media manager who shares, follows and tweets on the latest career news and information.
