@careersinreview the secret to negotiation when it comes to your salary…
Is, there is no secret.
Those “comments” truly don’t matter.
Could they hurt you a bit if you’re in a conversation with a really experienced recruiter? Maybe.
Sometimes good recruiters (the truly good ones) only want to know the number that will make you happy.
But the tricky part is hard for you as the job seeker to know who are the good ones.
So I get it, let’s prepare you for the scenario where you’d get someone who might want to get you for cheaper 😣
Yes, you shouldn’t volunteer how much you currently make.
So here is how you can safely navigate this:
🔥give a range, a big one, and take advantage of total compensation talk.
✨it’s not all about base salary, so when you give a number and if it feels too big for you be sure to mention at the end “total compensation”
👏🏻salary negotiations are very personal because it’s going depend on how much reliable information you have and how much leverage you actually have at the time of negotiation.
So although it doesn’t technically really matter, to be safe stay away from saying those things, come prepared, be ok with talking about money 💰
