1. Negotiate your salary
If they want to hire you, be brave and ask for the pay you deserve. Research income averages for employees in your field and move on from there. The trick is to always ask for more in hopes that the employer will meet you somewhere in the middle.
6. Be cheap
Now that you’re working regularly, you won’t be going out every night. This will be a relief on your sleep schedule and your wallet, but continue to look for other ways to save, like avoiding eating out every night by learning to cook. Little tricks like this can go a long way.
8. Don’t go crazy with the credit cards
They’ll be coming in the mail every day, tempting you with low interest rates, but don’t be tricked into opening any accounts if you don’t need to. If you can’t afford it, then you don’t need it. Credit card debt can get out of hand quickly.
9. Start a slush fund
Whether it’s for emergencies or for a rainy day, having a nice cushion of cash stashed away will work wonders on your anxiety levels. You never know when disaster will strike, and it will be nice to know you have the money to cover rent in case your job isn’t as stable as you thought it was.
