Getting a Salary you Deserve

Posted on July 14, 2017 at 5:05 pm

It can be difficult and awkward to negotiate a good salary, especially when job applications don’t even give you an approximate idea of salary before you apply. Don’t let this put you off though – remember that you are a hardworking employee and you have relevant skills and knowledge, meaning that you deserve a good salary. Here are some tips for negotiating:

• Ask your agency to state your expectations. Negotiating a salary via an agency can be easier as your employer will know the recruitment consultant and will value their opinion.
• Go in higher. Say a higher wage than you would be happy to accept so that there is some room for negotiation.
• Don’t apply for jobs where the salary is too low. You might be able to get a pay rise quickly, but equally you might not. Apply for the positions that offer the kind of salary you would want and expect.
