How to Address Your Salary Expectations

A few tips to help you address salary expectations:


Do the research

  • Surf the net and check the market related to the job you’re seeking.
  • Make sure to accurately assess based on location and job responsibilities.
  • Ask the experts in your area – connect with professional recruitment agencies and inquire.

Give a range

Don’t provide a fixed number, rather give a range based on your study and research.


Be reasonable

It is your right to request a higher salary from what you are already earning in your existing job.  However, you need to be reasonable in your request.

Highlight your strengths

If you acquire certain skills and experience that the employer would normally pay more to invest in their staff, you should highlight them in your interview as this can bring more credits to your side.
