Dreaded Job Interview Questions

What is your salary expectation?

Most job seekers fear this question. They are worried they may price themselves out of a great opportunity, or worse, undersell their worth and miss out on €€

I have a few simple strategies to help navigate this question

Scenario 1 | MONEY is your No.1 motivation

If money is your key driver, and you have a figure you want, state that figure, SIMPLE!!

Scenario 2 | MONEY is not your No.1 motivation

The best approach is to try to dodge the question and force the company to put a figure to you

  1. Answer the question with a question e.g., what would a role like this pay in your company?
  2. Say you are negotiable
  3. Outline your current package, but indicate you are negotiable
  4. Present a salary range you’ve identified as part of you market research
