Women Lead Webinar Series

Exclusively for Premium Access Pass members

You landed the offer! The hard work is done!

Well, not quite done. . .

Receiving a job offer is a big deal, and you deserve to celebrate. But before you accept the offer, take time to consider what you want most from this opportunity. Evaluate the offer against the criteria that are important to you, and then negotiate to get as much of what’s important to you as you can. Don’t shy away from negotiation, because it’s key to job satisfaction. So often, we skip right to the celebration — and then three months into the job, we realize that we should have asked for more money, more vacation days, or a more impressive title.

Join Forté and Chicago Booth’s Executive MBA team for a live discussion on how to evaluate a job offer and negotiate for what matters. We’ll role-play negotiation scenarios to show you what works, and we’ll leave plenty of time for your questions. You’ll walk away with strategies for success, pitfalls to avoid, and resources to help you navigate your own negotiations.

The webinar is presented by:

Julie Morton, Associate Dean, Chicago Booth Executive MBA Program

Julie Morton is the Associate Dean of the Executive MBA Program at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Booth’s Executive MBA program is truly global, with campuses in Chicago, London, and Hong Kong and attracts mid- to senior-level professionals from around the world, from myriad industries and functions. Julie oversees all aspects of marketing, recruiting, and admissions; student life and program operations; and a unique integrated offering that delivers global career support, leadership development, and employer relations.

Julie assumed this role in July 2020, after a long tenure leading Chicago Booth’s Career Services and Corporate Relations. Julie joined Chicago Booth in 2000. Immediately before coming to Booth, she worked in retained executive search. She spent several years doing strategy and turnaround consulting in central Slovakia and in Jakarta, Indonesia. Julie was also a financial services and strategy consultant at what was then Bankers Trust (now Deutsche Bank) and at Young & Rubicam in New York.

Julie received her MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College. Prior to attending Tuck, she served as the Director of Admissions at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. She has an undergraduate degree in International Studies from The Johns Hopkins University.
