Salary Negotiation Tip

It might seem obvious, but when we are in the Interview situation, we forget to follow the basic rule of negotiation.

It's essential to have a buffer to ensure room for movement to avoid disappointment when negotiating your salary.

Steps for salary negotiation:

  1. Research the market value for the range and compare it based on your experience (watch my earlier reel on finding your market value).

  2. When asked for fix number, don't pick the lower end of the range.

  3. Whatever is your desired salary (calculated based on your experience and location), mention at least 5-10% above.

  4. To ensure when negotiated, you have a higher chance of getting what you want because if you start at what you want, there is a high chance you will get slightly lower.

Adapted from: The negotiation book, Steve Gates.

Researching pay rates is key. I like to use pay scale websites like glassdoor and payscale before in go into final interviews. Especially if the pay rate isn't mentioned on the job description. Thanks for sharing these Awesome tips!
