Okay here's my rants/tips….
- Never talk about what you made at a previous job - it’s not their business
- Be confident about your number - if you are having troubles, practice saying it in the mirror. Trust me it helps!
- It can be all about timing. Avoid late afternoon and Friday meetings for salary talk.
- Don’t give a range. Say a literal number!
- And then add another 10K to it. I have learned over and over again I sell myself short every time.
- The hiring manager is your friend. Tell them your salary request often and get them to fight for you internally. Their performance is based off of you accepting a job and staying at the company usually for a year.
- Don’t say a number first. Get a salary range from them early. They want your desired salary ASAP to understand if moving forward is worth their time. Tell them you can give them a number ASAP when you understand the salary benchmark and what qualifies for the highest number. Be really strong about it and don’t ramble. Pausing has its power to.
- Companies love to give out a bunch of perks, that is great and also isn’t a salary. It is super nice of them. Though sometimes it can also be leverage by the employer to get you to settle for a lower number. You can’t qualify for a mortgage with a free Calm app subscription and a discounted phone bill….just saying
- Empathy and social cues are super important. Don’t make it a “ME ME ME” conversation. Ask what the current issues are for this role and really paint the picture for why you are the best match and worth your salary ask.
- If you are still lost, frustrated, getting no luck this is the time to get a career coach. There are a ton of reverse recruiters on social media and can also be found through some Googling and LinkedIn networking.
