Do you think it will be become normal to get wage/salary information before the first interview?

My brother just brought this up with me, he got to the 3rd interview for a job he really liked, but then found out the salary was super low, with poor benefits.

Everyone has a minimum in mind when applying for jobs, and it just saves everyone time in applications. And it seems there's a growing number of people who are frustrated with job listings not including the salary range.

Do you think it's possible for pay info to be upfront? #watercooler #jobsearch #WhatDoYouThink

Is your paycheck shrinking with the increased cost of healthcare contribution?

It’s that time of the year when companies are renewing their employee benefit plans. Lots of members and friends in my personal network are learning the not-so-jolly news💸 that they will either have to contribute more for the current healthcare coverage, or they will have to compromise for a downgraded health plan.

A few tips to share on how to make the best of your job benefits:

  • 🧮Do the math: figure out the actual amount that you will receive after all the healthcare and other benefit deduction. Here’s a great calculator that can help you do the math and balance your 2022 budget.
  • 🧐Brainstorm alternative: if your deductible is increasing, does your employer offer flexible spending accounts to offset some costs? If both you and your partner are working, maybe compare the health benefits and see if it makes better sense to switch to the better option. If you feel like you’re running out of options, you can also start looking for other companies that might offer better benefits.
  • 🙋‍♀️Ask for advice: it can be very overwhelming to figure out these terms and conditions. Go to the HR or benefit consultant for clarifications. Ask your own tax adviser. And if necessary, talk to your employer directly if you have concern about your shrinking paychecks.

What are your experiences when choosing your benefits? Any smart savings tips?

Assessments

So I was approached with quite a hard question by a young friend doing the usual job search:

Can you coach me with how to complete and pass the required assessments some employers have for new applicants?

So, this is an expansive type of answer. Some employers have customary answers to find the best suitable candidates to fill roles within their organization. And a lot of the time, it isn't cookie cutter. Some employers want introverts. Some want those who acquire more knowledge than customer-related skills. Some want the opposite. It's usually never "cookie cutter".

When faced with an application assessment, it's imperative you remember the most important part: You! Answer the questions how "you" feel they should be answered. Never stop being who you are for a potential job. If they don't pick you, they don't deserve you! Don't be discouraged! Remember, they need you more than you need them. Remember your worth! Fruit for thought 😉

So your "character flaw" is that you can't say no? This is so common, and hard to do. One tactic is that you can say, "OH, I hadn't thought about that, let me think about it and get back to you soon. - then change the subject and/or leave. Buy time. Then get back to the person tomorrow. Works for almost every kind of conflict.
