The question remains, if I need candidates and I am competing with hundreds of other recruiters for the same pool of hi-tech professionals, what will make you want to answer me if you are only contemplating a move?

We’ve all been there, but we didn’t need to be.

This is a guest post by Joseph Richards. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines.

Because very few of us are ever directly taught how to negotiate our salaries, the culture we are from determines in large part how comfortable we are negotiating. LinkedIn conducted a survey of more than 2,000 professions that revealed the differences in attitude around the world towards negotiating:

* Germans had the most positive outlook, saying they are excited about negotiating (21 percent) and felt confident (43 percent).

* South Koreans was the most indifferent about negotiating (21 percent).
* Americans was the most anxious about negotiating (39 percent).
* Brazilians was the most likely to be frightened by negotiating (21 percent).
