Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Business Administrator in Cincinnati:
`"$Negotiate!"`
I wish I would have had the knowledge and confidence to negotiate my starting salary. EVERYONE NEGOTIATES! Due to my lack of confidence at the time, I ended up starting my career about $5,000 behind my male counterparts. I regret it constantly and feel I will never catch up!
