Yes, you can. We always want you to get the best deal possible from your new employer, but we recognize that there may be good reasons for you to trade off a bit in short-term salary in order to get a great experience or to get your foot in the door with an employer with whom you really want to work.

We always encourage you to negotiate your job offer if possible. Your coaches will advise you on your situation, but employment is a complex relationship with a lot of dimensions. Maybe you can’t get more money right now, but maybe you can negotiate an early salary review, a remote work situation, or something else. The most important thing is that we want you to get more than just “another job.” We want this new opportunity to be a gateway to your new career!
