Am I Wrong For Thinking This? New Grad Offer

Recommended Posts

Hey yall, 

Im facing a bit of a dilemma. I got a new grad offer for a Surgical Position that is offering me the package below in NYC

105K Base Salary 

10% Night differential 

20 PTO days, 8 paid holidays, unlimited sick time, 12 weeks of paid salary for sick leave

8-10% Increase every year

Health package as well

The reason I am conflicted is id like to make a counter offer for more but dont know how to go about it. A friend of mine got a similar deal but 5K more out east without negotiating in the same system.

How should I go about negotiating it? What are some tips you can provide to get it higher salary or a better benefits package. Why would would there be a discrepancy between both?

What does the salary report say? Basically you could reply with something along the lines of:

"Thank you for the offer! It was nice meeting so and so, and I think I'd be a great fit at X. I appreciate the offer of 105K, and I am very excited to start.

However, based on the AAPA new grad salary report, I was hoping for 115K, especially given I will be working nights. Is there any wiggle room?

Thanks again!"
