SALARY NEGOTIATING 101
Have you had a job interview lately? Which interview questions do you dread the most? For myself and many others we start to get anxious towards the end of the interview because we know what's coming. Interviewers and hiring managers often times try to be slick and sneak it in right before they wrap things up. You know what I'm talking about.
It's the dreaded salary questions. How much do you currently make? What is your target range? What is the lowest salary you can accept? All I ever think is "how much I currently earn is none of your business, I'll take as much as I can get and my minimum salary requirements depend on my current level of desperateness" respectively.
While as a job candidate I think it's none of an employers business to know how much I currently make or have made in the past I still do understand the employers need to ask the questions. They feel that they will waste a considerable amount of time interviewing someone that they can't afford to hire. So although I don't like it I get it.
As job candidates how can we successfully satisfy the potential employers questions without selling ourselves short? If our believed or perceived job market value is too high then they won't hire us. And if our stated salary requirements are too low we've cheated ourselves out of money and it's possible that they still won't hire us. What are the best strategies or tactics to use when negotiating a starting salary or raise? How can you get the employer to state a range first? How do you handle them threatening to end all contact if you don't provide your salary history and or requirements? Do you know?
