More Information about Salary Requirements
If you are asked your salary requirements early in the hiring process, the company is using this question as a pre-screening tool. Be careful! If you answer too high you may disqualify yourself from the running and if you answer too low you may be depriving yourself of a much higher salary once hired.
Consider the following responses:
2. Depends on the benefits package
3. Share the salary range you have researched
Try the following approach:
"That's a great question that I will be able to answer later in the interview process once I know more about the position and its challenges, I should be able to accurately answer your question. Still, I have done research on www.salary.com, so I'd be looking for a position within the $k-$k base salary range. Clearly, you will want to be confident that I'm the right person for this position, as well, before discussing salary and benefit information with me...am I correct in assuming that?"
