Desired Salary

Interview Question: “What size salary do you feel you are worth, why?”

Negotiating or even just formulating the right offer is far easier to accomplish when you know what the expectations are on the other side of the table. Equally as important is why someone feels they are due a certain level of compensation. Many times the answer lies in all of our desires to make more in the next job than the last. In some cases it actually may be rooted in a candidate’s research of the salaries in the market for their slot. Any answer you can get here is helpful — so ask it.
