Recently, ResumeDoctor.com surveyed over 2,000 recruiters and hiring managers
worldwide in order to find out what questions are most frequently asked during
job interviews. Participants came from a variety of industries, including information
technology, marketing and sales, finance, and healthcare.
# 9 – What are your salary requirements?
Once an employer has determined that a candidate is an appropriate
match with both the position and the company the next step is
determining the financial feasibility for both parties. Sometimes,
interviewers will ask how much money the candidate makes in their
current position. Regardless of how it is asked, the question
is straightforward and demands a realistic and clear answer.
Recruiter Tip: Make sure to let the employer know
that you will consider the whole package, (benefits, healthcare,
401K, tuition re-imbursement, etc.). Also, make sure that the
employer is aware you will consider cost of living indexes, (if
relocation is involved), possibly commuting time, (a 15 minute
commute versus an hour and a half must be worth something) and other
factors such as quality of life and interest in the work for you.
