To further explore salary differences across demographic backgrounds, the Career Services Council added a question on salary negotiation to the 2022 survey:
Was this the first salary you were offered?
Yes, and I accepted without negotiating (67.7% of responses).
Yes, but I did attempt to negotiate (14.8% of responses).
No, I negotiated for this salary (e.g., successful negotiation) (18.4% of responses).
Summary of analyses
67.7% of all graduates who responded to the negotiation question (N = 811) accepted the first salary they were offered without negotiating. That is, only 33.2% of respondents negotiated. Of those who negotiated, 56.9% were successful.
