Salary Negotiation


You got the chance for an interview, you caught their attention and you made a really good impression with the experience that you have, skill sets and credentials. They contacted you once again to schedule a follow up interview, which clearly means they are interested in having you on board. There is one problem though; you just don’t think they are prepared to offer you the salary that you are looking to have. So how can you effectively negotiate for the paycheck that you think you deserve?

Salary negotiation is without a doubt the most sensitive aspect of any job interview. It is always being emotionalized simply because we find it very uncomfortable and somehow inappropriate to talk about money. But one thing you have to keep in mind is that you are not at the mercy of any employer so there is no reason at all for you to hesitate or feel afraid. Employers always expect their potential employees to negotiate their salaries. In almost all cases, a qualified candidate has all the right and the power to negotiate for a higher salary.

It is very important that you realize what salary negotiation is all about, which is your worth as an employee. You have to have an idea of what you are worth. This will depend on the way you prepare for your job application, your attitude during the interviews, and the manner in which you present yourself and your demands. It may not be easy, but it is definitely not impossible for you to get the salary compensation that you truly deserve.
