Soft skill education is normally focused on improving the employee´s professional skills and potential. However, one of the most neglected abilities is in negotiations. Good negotiation improves your leadership skills and the competence to solve problems. During a job interview, negotiations are useful to know, adequate and improve the expectations and aims of the position, and to align the needs and interests of the employee to those of the employer. It also contributes to improving working conditions. Thus, this exchange can be crucial for efficient and productive performance. Having the possibility to negotiate also ensures good mental health for the worker in the medium and long term, which benefits both the employee and the employer. To get the most out of negotiations during the job interview, it is necessary to acknowledge the perfect moment to do it, empathise with the recruiter, have a strategy, ask key questions, and expose ideas in a clear and structured way.
