|Overview:||You are never in a stronger position to negotiate than just before you accept a new role. So why do so many people bypass this critical step? Well, probably because it's terrifying! Only a few are given the training needed to really excel, and getting started can be daunting to the extreme. This talk will cover why negotiation is important for your career, why you should never work for free, real-world examples, and strategies for getting started with your own negotiations. Making great games is awesome. Making great games and being paid what you're worth? Even better!|
