Having a knowledge base in the field of stock compensation has tremendous value. We’re a niche industry that operates in regulations and technicalities; acquiring the knowledge and learning the nuances takes time. Growing your career in the world of stock plans can be closely tied to your ability to demonstrate your value. One skill to aid in being able to do so confidently is mastering the art of negotiation. It’s one thing to know what you bring to the table. It’s another thing to ensure that others comprehend what you have to offer. Learning to negotiate can help in any situation, including career discussions with your employer and network. Our most recent NASPP Podcast, “Tips for Successful Negotiating with Carine Schneider, AST,” focuses on this exact topic.
Stepping away from day to day processes can be a challenge for any stock administrator – there’s always an abundance of things to do. It’s important to make time for your own growth in ways that will compliment your stock plan knowledge base. For additional resources and ideas, visit our NASPP Career Center. You’ll find a myriad of career content for stock administrators, including interviews with several industry veterans who describe their own experiences in navigating their career development (among them: “Take This Job and Love It!” with Kim Arnold from United Health Group).
