800 Offer-Negotiation

     In the war for talent,
     some companies will even help employees pay their student loans

     In negotiations, having insight into the other fella's cards can be a significant advantage.

Remember when companies offered college graduates a job with a few weeks of vacation,
     medical and dental insurance and a 401(k) plan? Well, those days are gone.
     The millennials streaming into the workforce today, at companies both big and small, are
     expecting and getting benefits that baby boomers wouldn't even have thought of — or
     dared ask for. Among them: pet insurance, paid volunteering opportunities and student-loan
     repayment help, just to name a few.

     What's more surprising is that millennials are even willing to take less pay for these benefits
     — a plus that puts many small businesses having difficulty making payroll each month back
     in the game to compete for great talent. According to the
     CNBC/SurveyMonkey Small Business Survey, 7 percent of the 2030 small businesses surveyed
     cite cost of labor as a critical issue.
