These are some common question which is asked in an interview and from these questions I suggest you what is the right way to answer the one most imported question.
“What is your salary expectation?” This is the question which mostly asked in every interview.
The way you answer this question decides whether you’ll get a good salary or not get an offer at all.
So, let’s take a look how you can answer this qustion smartly.
What is your Salary Expectation?
It doesn’t matter if you are a fresher or an experienced professional, everybody gets confused when the interviewer asks this question.
Most of the time everybody sound like “How can I tell you my Salary Expectations?”
“Shouldn’t you tell me how much you are paying first …and then I’ll tell you whether it is okay or not”.
Trust me guys, I have given multiple interviews and I’ve taken interviews too.
This dos not work.
So, please read this article carefully by the end of this article you will know exactly how to answer this question.
What does the interviewer want to know by asking ‘What are your Salary Expectations?’
Here I explain a 3-step process of answering this question.
No matter what job you are applying for and towards the end, I’ll give you a Bonus Tip so that your salary keeps on increasing either through promotion or a better job.
Every recruiter is different. By asking this question, some want to know.. If you are confident in your skills, your experience.
So you cannot quote your salary down too low or too high. Every company has a budget and they want to know if they can afford you.
Keeping those 2 points in mind, here’s how you should not answer it.
Don’t give a set number unless the employer mentions it and you are negotiating it.
‘Are you serious? You are giving me THAT low?!’ Even if the offer seems less, respond gracefully and ask if you can negotiate.
And the most important thing, you don’t ask the salary question, let the interviewer bring it up.
Just a few weeks back, an interviewee told me, ‘My payscale is in millions. ..You are a start-up, so you can’t afford me full-time. But I am willing to work part-time for you.
As soon as he said this, it told me that this guy is more concerned about money rather than working with me, then why will I waste my time teaching him something?
So the thumb rule is be gracious and lets the interviewer bring it up.
And in case they bring it up, this is how you can answer the question.
When you are answering this question, you are basically selling your skills to the interviewer.
And in order to do that right, here are the 3 things that you must do.
1. Know yourself. List down your education, experience, qualifications, unique skills, achievements.. so that you know what you are worth.
2. Know the job and the company. Money is important but an average person spends 90,000 hours working and money is not a good enough reason to keep you happy for that long. Along with money,
Things that matter include.. learning opportunities, the team that you get to work with, the company’s vision that makes you want to go to the office every day, for some office location matters too.
So know everything there is to know about the benefits you’ll get from working for that company.
3rd and the most obvious step is to find out what the industry is paying. Go to websites like Linkedin, Glassdoor, and see what range a company is paying for that role.
Now, here’s a Pro Tip! A job in Jaipur might pay you 30,000 INR per month but the same job might pay 50,000 INR in a city like Mumbai because the cost of living, varies in cities.
After you’ve followed these 3 steps, here are a few ways that you can present your answer.
As you just saw, you are politely shifting the focus from a specific number to the other benefits that a job has to offer and are showing that you are willing to negotiate.
If you are a fresher, then you can tweak this answer like this. When you show that the company culture is important to you then you as a fresher become more preferable when compared to others who have similar qualifications.
You don’t have to say the exact same thing… use your own words. But you are getting what I am trying to say right?!
But if the interviewer is adamant about you providing a figure then use your 3-step research to answer like this…
Now, here is a Pro Tip. Kindly do not mention your personal financial needs that I need this much salary because I need to pay off my loan. Instead use your experience, your qualifications, and your achievements to justify your salary range.
I am going to tell you what you can do to increase your salary range in the Bonus Tip.
Finally, it is time for the Bonus Tip. the Bonus Tip is this. Invest in your self-growth, instead of buying materialistic things that you don’t need.
Only when you keep upgrading your skills, will you get a promotion or a better job or better yet, you might convert your hobby into a new career and finally be happy.
