Hi All,

I Need an email to send it for HR seeking for more salary than the offered.

I had attended interview say in A company and they offered me some good figure after some negotiation. After this I have attended interview in say B company where they have offered more than A company but I more interested to work in A company how do I convey them that I want more salary than the B company in A company.

It would be great if you provide me some email samples and tips about how to communicate this to HR in A company.

Thanks

Simply say you have a higher offer but would rather work for them and ask them to match.

I suggest you talk to them via telephone rather than via email.

What field are you in?

How much is each company offering you?

I would not even attempt to negotiate salary by email.

I would make a phone call and see if they would match. You need to convey the proper tone of voice. You want to sound excited about the prospect of working for the company.

You also need to hear them speak, as you negotiate. Are they matter of fact? Do they sound hesitant? Can you turn it around, if they are hesitating?

I agree with this. You could easily write an email that could be taken in the wrong tone with this type of request.
