Salary requirements...

When an employer is asking to send in salary requirements with a resume, are all they really asking for is a number, or something more detailed/broken down?


TIA

Re: Salary requirements...

In my experience, which is fairly limited, they want a number for base pay. But it is an item to be discussed in the interview. I found I shot too low most times.

Re: Salary requirements...

I've found it's usually best to put "negotiable", or give a range rather than a single number. Do your homework ahead of time so you know what the going rate is for the position you seek, and be ready to describe why you feel you are worth what you are requesting.

Re: Salary requirements...

I never give a number. You'lll find if your skills are in demand, you can negotiate around many different things; one of which is your salary. If they insist, add a salary RANGE. Something like, "$200,000-$250,000". That way, you don't lock yourself in to anything too low. You can also negotiate for less than what you want if they are willing to give you other benefits that are nice - extra vacation, car etc...

Re: Salary requirements...

Just don't put in a range like $.99 - $99,999.99 or guess which one you'll get

Re: Salary requirements...

hahaha... that reminds me of when VISA was trying to force an application on me. Everytime I called my bank, they'd offer me a VISA and ask if I want to sign up. Invariably, I'd say 'no' but finally I got tired of it. I said, "Will it stop you from asking me if I want to sign up?" Yup. Sooo... they asked what I wanted my credit limit to be. I said, "I don't care, I don't even want the card!" They told me I had to choose so I asked what the max was... $99,999 - I said, "Ok then, I want a $99,999 limit." heh... being a first year univ. student, they didn't give me the full limit.

Seriously, when you walk into an interview, make sure you know your worth. Make sure that your range is surrounding that worth. Always aim high.

Re: Salary requirements...

Put 2.5 Gs more if your in the 20-35 braket than you want a year . 5Gs more than you want a year if your in the 35-45 braket, 7Gs more if 45-65 braket,10 G more above 65. Thats a good baseline. you can always add (neg) beside and if you get any flack tell em you want to see the insurance set up and what not to waay the bennys.

God Bless...
