WHAT ARE YOUR SALARY EXPECTATIONS? , here are 3 really important tips for answering it with confidence, and in the correct manner.
What Are Your Salary Expectations?
Make sure you research the average salary range for the role you are being interviewed for before you attend the interview. Where do you find the average salary range for your particular job? Well, there are two websites.
The first one you can use is PayScale.com, and the second one is Glassdoor.com.
What are your compensation expectations?
Make sure you ask for a salary that is slightly below the highest range of the average. So, for example, if the average salary range for your particular job is Rs.3,00,000 and Rs. 8,00,000, make sure you choose a salary that is just below the highest range. And in that particular range, I would be going for Rs.7,00,000.
What salary do you want?
You then need to JUSTIFY WHY you are worth this particular salary. So, here’s the EXACT SCRIPT of what you need to say we go. “Before attending the interview today, I carried out some research to establish the average salary range for this job within this industry. The average salary is between Rs.5,00,000 to Rs. 7,34,000. Whilst I feel I am worth the higher salary range, I understand that you do not know me, and I have a responsibility to prove to you my worth.
On that basis, I would be comfortable with a salary of Rs.7,00,000 and I believe, based on my hard-working nature, my ability to get up and running quickly in the role, and my commitment to your company brand, you will soon see a positive return on your investment, if you choose to hire me.
I hope you enjoyed that. And I wish you all the best for passing your interview. Have a brilliant day!
