What is your opinion regarding
promotions and salary increases?
In an era of financial uncertainty and intense competition, recession
brings out the entrepreneurial spirit in many prospective candidates due
to jobs being harder to find.
I would hope the salary offered would be based on my qualifications and
years of experience. I understand, as a new employer, the salary offered
could be commensurate with my credentials and also consistent with industry
standards and what similar employees earn at the company.
My hope would be that a successful salary negotiation, between me and
the employer would be satisfactory to both parties, as all negotiations
are part of a compromise and neither party ever gets everything that they
wanted at the outset.
