10 Jobs for People with Good Negotiation Skills

Are you someone who thrives on arguments and wins most of the time? Do you like to negotiate for the best prices or outcomes?

If your answer is yes, you have a great skill that can help you flourish in various careers requiring a great negotiator. A great negotiator is sharp and capable of thinking in fast-paced situations, creating the best solutions for both parties. They are also very emphatic over the people around them and can easily tell what they are feeling accurately.

Want to know which jobs can use a great negotiator like you? Here are 10 great jobs you can consider:

1. CEO

Every industry requires a CEO or president to create business strategies throughout its operations. They are like captains of the ship, steering it away from storms. They must be able to plan and direct each member’s responsibilities and ensure they achieve their goals on time. CEOs must also liaise with other executives and business partners to expand the business. A good CEO will lead the company into success in the shortest amount of time with the least risks.

2. Human Resources Manager

A human resources manager is assigned to screen new employees for the company and make sure there are no conflicts that will occur internally. They also serve as mediators during conflicts and help both parties reach a fair compromise.

3. Sales Engineer

Sales engineers need to have both negotiating skills to create sales and technical knowledge to understand the technologies being sold by the company. They must understand what their clients are looking for and persuade them to try out the product they are selling.

4. Talent Agent

Before artists, performers, writers and entertainers can get deals with employers, they will need someone to stand as a middle man, and that’s where talent agents come in. These people are the ones who will reach out to directors and producers and promote their client’s talents or sort out their contracts and fees. Talent agents must be able to negotiate with all sorts of people and be strong-willed to deal with them.

5. Arbitrator

When it comes to negotiating, arbitrators are the most effective ones out there. They are paid to resolve disputes between firms and their consumers or highly-ranked personalities. They are required to be neutral and unbiased while helping out both parties to meet a suitable compromise.

6. Real Estate Agent

Property agents or real estate agents are the ones who market properties, either by buying property or selling them. They will need to answer inquiries about the property, value the properties brought before you and negotiate with buyers and sellers alike. 

7. Project Manager

Every project must have a manager who handles the entire project, from its kick-off to its completion. They must be able to set goals for the project and a timeline and budget that the team throughout the project will follow.

8. Counselling Psychologist

Counselling psychologists are tasked with helping people find ways to get past their problems and lead successful lives. They must be able to evaluate the patient’s mental state and lifestyle and identify the right therapy and recommendations they need to become a better person. Counselling psychologists must have a clear mind when dealing with patients and be convincing to help people move past their trials and find ways to make their lives better.

9. Media Buyer

Media buyers are those who identify which media platform works best for a specific audience during campaigns, events and the like while also sorting out the costs of the platform for use. They are also the ones who persuade clients to utilise specific media platforms for their programs and events.

10. Event Planner

You can also work on event planning if you have excellent negotiation skills. Your task will be to make events possible and negotiate with many suppliers to support the event. You also will be the one to organise the date and venue and get everything ready for the event.

Negotiating with people can be difficult, especially if you do it as a career. If dealing with many people is your forte and focusing on your tasks is a pleasure, you definitely can become successful in the above jobs. Make sure to do your research before starting on one of these careers to increase your chances of picking the right one for you.
