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:
@gradversity Q#155 Figure out how much you need to get by and use online salary comparison sites to form a reasonable response.
@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.
