How do I make one skill/qualification outweigh another?

I have been driving a truck for a living since graduating college in December of 2006. All the companies I interviewed with always ask why I want to give up truck driving when I make more driving. How do I sell myself to a company that has a position that makes less money? The whole point of going to college was to use the degree eventually correct?

Just tell them I took a job that eventually paid more than what I wanted to do. But money is not my objective doing what I love is the objective and I would love to be part of your team!

What is your degree in? Tell the next company you interview with, that you would like to have 2 skills driving and also whatever the degree is in.

Hesitant

I recent had two interviews with a company, and at the second interview I was told that wanted to make me an offer to hire me. I said great, they emailed me the offer and it's 10k less than my current and desired salary (which they were aware of) so I wrote back declining the offer. I received a call in the morning to discuss my reply and after explaining why I felt discouraged with the offer they made a second offer at my current salary. Why do I have a bad taste in my mouth???

You have a bad taste because you was under the impression that they would give you what they offered and in turn, they tried to negotiate (the reason for the call to talk about your decline). This a selling and buying market. Like someone has already said, you know your worth and if you feel they didn't take you seriously and you still want the job; then you must make them understand that the salary is not negotiable. Let them decline or accept. I think someone already said also, if you already have a bad taste in your mouth with this company - chances are you won't be happy working there. Good luck Philip!

It sounds like they were low-balling you. If the 2nd offer was just to match your current salary why leave? Most people leave their current job for upward mobility, not laterally. It they attempted to low-ball you on the salary before you get there what else to they have up their sleeve?? Given the fact that they tried to under cut your salary (knowing what you currently made) I'm not sure if they can be trusted (my personal feelings). Trust your gut, it's usually never wrong. Good luck!!!

What Are Your Career Aspirations in 5 Year's Time?

This question tests several aligned needs which must be asked during interview between recruiters, hiring manager's, & interviewees. The first being -- where are you headed? The second being -- why? The third being -- for what reason? These sound like basic questions during interview, but they're critical not only to your 'positioned and targeted success'. Therefore, these questions directly tell recruiters and hiring managers what you've been planning without any baloney (such as offering a trumped-resume that won't speak volumes through direct business). Furthermore, these questions tell hiring manager's specifically how you're positioning yourself for 'targeted (no rejection) success'. By that kind of success, I mean to say that you're creating a pathway years before you emerge. Case in point, if I want to be a fire-powered sales rep working for a top company, I'm going to work my tail feathers off to get there using a real positioning strategy: 1) Transfer entrepreneurial skills directly over to a prime target audience years in advance. How? Simple. Work alongside the target audience daily by giving this audience what they need most (a no frill's approach to maintaining an efficient but organized O.R.). 2) Address gaps in skill-set. Here's how. If I'm going to be a top rep in cardiovascular surgery, I'm going to work in surgery first fulfilling any basic roles for at least 3 years. Let's call this role surgical technician. There's a 2-yr associate's degree that's required. I can work during the day and study online at night. The tuition money is available through the U.S. Gov't. The pay increase must follow so that you can repay all plans. Then, fill in the sales skill-set for at least 2 years by working in a call center (by closing business using an advanced rebuttal system). 3) Approach the top company your want. By-pass H.R. and head straight to hiring managers because they're the only ones who can say 'yes' or 'no' on hire. I don't care where you attend school for training. As long as you're detailed-oriented and conceptually strong/ethical, you can't lose. What matters is that you design your success in phases, and by using this strategy, you'll become a top 1% candidate -- the kind recruiters and hiring managers wish they met more often. Therefore, even if you start out working a $44K/year job, that's not a problem because that success will carry over to the call center environment at $63K/year. Then..., once those required gaps are met, you become a dream candidate for any recruiter or hiring manager because you're guaranteeing all involved parties success beforehand. Your performance isn't an issue because you've got the hard-core, proven skill-set (and network) they want. Therefore, asking for a job with a top company is no problem because you've done the work. During interview, you're testing corporate alignment (culture with fit)..., and you're checking corporate strategy/& growth aligned to your definite contributions (so that you can indirectly look at your favorite company's solvency. This information shows you that they can ride out market fluctuations (up's and down's)..., and their growth during these next 20 and 30 years will reveal that you can retire very well ... or promote further from within). Does this help? Find what absolutely motivates you, then head to O Net Online Dot Org. http://onetonline.org. There, you 'll see all of the resources you need in order to make informed, planned, & reimbursed decisions sculpting tremendous success. As an added bonus, if you'd like to know how to translate a $63K/yr job into a $143K job ... or build your pathway in directions called a $200K/yr job..., or $500K/yr job, then you include 1099 consulting. You can sculpt any pathway you wish by emphasizing your passion! Love, Barbara Brinkmeyer, MBA

Multilingual

Is there any value in the job market being multilingual? I have experience in retail banking (Teller and Customer Service Representative) and my resume shows that I’m fluent in Spanish and Portuguese but I’m not sure how much weight that carries with recruiters. I’ve never tried to negotiate a higher wage because of my other languages. Does this skill make me a more attractive applicant? If so, how can I use it to leverage my earning potential during the hiring process?

We're living in a country where being bilingual is a very valuable asset not only do you have Spanish speaking abilities but you also have portuguese-speaking abilities now it does matter what kind of job and what kind of work that you're looking for and if you have the skills able to communicate that in a very real way keep giving your best don't accept second best. Negotiate negotiate and negotiate some more whenever that opportunity presents itself you can never go wrong with negotiation processes I wish you the best. Your next job may be just waiting right around the corner. :-)

Should you always discuss compensation when you get a job offer?

I'm curious what people think about this. I know some people (especially in more corporate fields) who have a personal policy to ALWAYS negotiation compensation when receiving a job offer. But I also have some close friends in other industries (non-profit, etc) who feel like they could actually lose the offer if they asked. What do you think? What's your experience? #interview

At the end of the interview. You should bring up the pay compensation. That is closing the deal.

Okay, Lauren. Here is your answer: First smile and be sincerely appreciative of the job offer. Then, simply say, "I'll certainly consider any compensation that you think is fair." Then simply look at them in an expectant way. Any salary that is offered will bw 10% to as much as 20% below what they have already determined to be the value of the job. If they should ask you what salary you want, this is your stock answer: "Whatever is right for the job." Don't be on the defensive. Put them on the defensive. Once then have given you a figure, add 10% and counter. Remember, they have already decided to hire you. That means they want you. They are not going to quibble about 10%. Believe it !
