📢 Know Your Worth When Job Searching! 🚀

Are you on the hunt for your dream job? Remember, it's essential to recognize your true value and worth throughout the entire job search process. Here are some crucial points to keep in mind:

1️⃣ Self-Assessment: Take the time to evaluate your skills, qualifications, achievements, and unique strengths. Understanding your worth begins with recognizing your own capabilities.

2️⃣ Research: Investigate the current market trends and industry standards related to your desired role. This knowledge will help you gauge the value employers place on your skills and experience.

5️⃣ Don't Settle: Avoid settling for less than you deserve. Remember, your time, skills, and expertise are valuable. Be patient and wait for the right opportunity that aligns with your worth.

6️⃣ Negotiation: When you receive an offer, don't be afraid to negotiate. Research comparable salaries, highlight your qualifications, and articulate the value you bring to the table. Negotiating shows that you recognize your worth and are willing to advocate for it.

7️⃣ #KnowYourWorth: Use this hashtag to join the conversation on social media and share your experiences, tips, and success stories related to recognizing and asserting your value in the job market.

One of the best times to negotiate your salary is just after you have received the offer letter- because you have already convinced the employer why you are a good fit for the role.

If you believe the offer is below your expectations and market value. You should ask to discuss further regarding your compensation package.

  1. Thank them for the offer.
  2. Remind the "unique value" you will bring.
  3. Ask your desired salary "backed by market data."

I applied to a position that came up within a certain salary range within within my search criteria. The job title seemed impressive and the job description seemed to indicate the job was rather robust. I get an e-mail to have a 30 minute phone interview. I was excited thinking this would be a good job with a good company. I have the call this morning and within 2 minutes the recruiter tells me the job pays $17 an hour. I almost dropped my phone. Now, I'm not knocking the pay as for some people that would be considered good. Or you would be ok with that pay scale. I am looking for jobs that pay considerably more than that and fits within salaries I have made. Besides that, these companies want you to do so much for the position yet don't want to pay you anything for it. I'm so darn frustrated! It's like a bait and switch situation. They make the job seem all of that then when you talk to a company recruiter it turns out to be a big nothing and further, want to pay you nothing. I think that on these online job sites the companies should have to put salaries associated to the position. This way no one is wasting their time applying for positions that turn out to be something they don't want.

Why can't companies just be up front about salaries so people l don't continue to get screwed?

You're being interviewed for a position but once they see what you made at your last place of work and because it's higher than what they're willing to offer you instantly become "overqualified"?

I just have a question about minimum wage. I havent worked since our new minimum wage was set, but I'm wondering if employers are allowed to pay under minimum wage, if you're not receiving any tips or compensation? The thing that confuses me is there's a federal, state & city/ county minimum wage & I've noticed that even though our minimum wage is $12 an hour, some stores only pay between $8.50- $11 an hour, even retailers like Family Dollar. Is that legal, especially if they don't give you breaks or any benefits?

Hello, Just curious when should I just take something that is still of decent salary but a bit far from what I wanted as a base. I hate not working, its only been 2 months and I have been on interviews, but I have declined moving forward in interviews due to salary. I hate to "settle" for a job just to get a paycheck and have a job, but wondering should I? I am fine economically for a few more months, but I would rather not spend savings to keep looking. I know money isn't everything, but honestly it is important for me to be able to live life without worrying about spending too much. Just wanted I guess just wanted to put my thoughts out there to hear some advice. Thanks!

I have been a paid by the hour employee for all of my work life so forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question but how can I negotiate for higher hourly wage on a job interview. I’m not even sure if this is possible for entry level type jobs in customer service but I’m still curious to find a way I can get a better hourly wage up front.

I interviewed with big company last week. I believe I had the job closed. Had a good connection with the 4 management team leaders. Although the salary posted in the job add on the Internet was incorrect. About 20,000.00 more then what it paid. When it came to the salary negotiations I said a number that was in line with what was posted. The guy stopped breathing when I told him the number and that it was posted. He then said he would have to check in into the add and he would give me a call in the next couple days. 2 days went by and I called him to check in at which time he told me that what I asked for was not the salary budget. I explained that I am still very interested in the position and would love to come to an agreement. He said he wanted to go ahead and interview a couple more people and will get a hold of me with in the next two weeks. My concern is; and question... How do I approach the concern of the employer in me starting on a lower salary, that I will not be discouraged in my job and will still give 100 percent? I have a few other offers but felt in my belly that this was the right move. I would hate for both me and the company to losee out over a typo. Has anyone ever delta with this and how did it turn out? Any advice is welcome.

I recently relocated to another State sans a job in that state. It took about 2 months but I was finally offered a position with an agency. On Dec 19 I submitted a Salary Justification Letter because I have 11 years of experience in the field. I was scheduled to start at the beginning of the year. Because of the letter I was told that they would get back to me the week of the 9th and that it would delay my start date. I did not hear back from them, I was patient and did not email the hiring manager until Friday 1/13. I still have not got a response. What should I do next? In addition I checked their site and they reposted the job. Do you think they are doing this because I asked for money and if so can I file a complaint?
