Interview Tips: What are Your Salary Expectations?

Everyone loves money, but this may not be the best time to start dropping numbers. The company already knows what they are willing to pay for the position’s compensation, so your best approach is to sound reasonable. Each career has its own inherent salary range and your best bet here is to explain how your skills and experience match the position very well and that you are aware of the compensation associated with this type of position. Keep the following in mind:

  • Showing that you are reasonable indicates that you are fair.
  • The actual salary negotiations will take place after the interview.
  • Rather than calling out a salary, general expectations are preferred.
  • End your answer with a question to get an idea as to where they stand.
