Salary Negotiation

Yes …

To answer the question positively without stating specific amounts. (Examples:. “Won in the low 30′s,” As a student, my work so far have focused on gaining experience and making money to cover their education.)

Indicate your desired salary or says that salary is negotiable depending on location and give $ 3 to 5.000 range (if you know the market value for the position for someone with your skills and background). You can also use terms like “competitive” and “open” if in answer to the application form.

Know your salary requirements and what we hope to do. You should not mention these in your answer salary history, but you must give this some thought for when you get to the stage of negotiations.

Be prepared to respond to a request for previous salaries in an interview. It can be handled by responding without stating specific amounts. Avoiding certain amounts, if at all possible.

Prepare a list of your positions (in reverse chronological order) for their own reference and just in case the employer, which are very much interested is absolutely adamant. (This does not happen often!) This list should include the name of any company or organization, position title, compensation, and a brief summary of their position.

Research salaries in your area: See the latest salary surveys, talk to others who work in your area, contact your trade or professional associations to find out what other people paid for doing the same job.

Be Flexible: When going through salary negotiations is not likely to get the exact amount of money you want. You will probably have to compromise. The trick is to figure out how much you’re willing to compromise and what would you do if your boss does not offer salary you find acceptable.

Not …

Include your salary history on your resume. What is working is more important than what they were paid.

Lie on your previous pay rate. Employers often can not verify your salary history by reference checks.

See how much money your friends make in other areas: Can be envious of their friends who have earned more money than they are. If they do not work in that area should not make those comparisons.

Talk about how much money is needed: When going through salary negotiations, do not tell your boss (or future boss) that you need to make more money because their bills are high, your house is expensive, or your child starts college.
