Dear Experts, What's the right answer to the question, "What are your salary requirements?" I don't want to undersell or oversell myself. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: @keppie_careers Q#155 Answering the salary question: http://bit.ly/21rgem @gradversity Q#155 Figure out how much you need to get by and use online salary comparison sites to form a reasonable response. @juliaerickson Q#155 Know how much u need/want, tell them range & "I'm flexible 4 right opp" & read this http://bit.ly/tzK13 @dawnbugni Q#155 First, research range. Then, "I'm sure salary commiserate with duties & market rate." Or give range, Not 1 number. @beneubanks Q#155 I ask them 1) what last person made and 2) what their range is. First person to speak loses! @jtodonnell Q#155 Suggest range so you don't price yourself out. Explain range reflects differences in benefits/opportunity.
